Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The groundbreaking classic for parents of gays and lesbians, fully updated and revised

When a parent or friend hears for the first time that someone they love is gay, the feelings can range from bewilderment and confusion to fear and anger. It is also the starting point of a journey toward acceptance and understanding.

Based upon discussions and interviews with parents belonging to P-FLAG (Parents, Families and Friends of Gays and Lesbians), a support and advocacy group with over four hundred chapters internationally, Beyond Acceptance provides parents with knowledge and information that will help them come to understand their children and build stronger relationships with them.

With extensive testimony from other parents, this book will help many realize that they are not alone and the emotional stages through which they journey are natural and understood.

Synopsis:

When a parent or friend hears for the first time that someone they love is gay, the feelings can range from bewilderment and confusion to fear and anger. Based upon discussions and interviews with parents of gays and lesbians, "Beyond Acceptance" provides knowledge and information that will help parents come to understand their children and build stronger relationships with them.

Synopsis:

"Mom, Dad, I'm gay." When a parent hears these words, the initial shock is often followed by feelings ranging from anger and denial to fear and guilt. It's also the beginning of a difficult journey that, with understanding and emotional support, can lead to acceptance and beyond.

Now fully revised and updated, Beyond Acceptance is a ground-breaking book that provides parents the comfort and knowledge they need to accept the gay children and build stronger family relationships. Based on the experiences of other parents, this book lets them know they are not alone and helps them through the emotional stages leading to reconciliation with their children.
