"An essential survival guide for the coming out process"
Betty Fairchild & Nancy Hayward
If you are beginning to run out of excuses for putting off that little chat with your folks, help is at hand. This is one of the best books that you should read and then give, or recommend to your parents after you have come-out. Written by two mothers of gay children Now That You Know discusses the nature of homosexuality, counsels parents to respond supportively to gay children, and brings families together by maintaining the bonds of acceptance and affirmation. The authors keep the reader up-to-date on pressing health and emotional issues with a new postscript to their chapter on AIDS. They recognise that parents need to reach out to other parents and have a completly updated chapter on support groups, including PFLAG. Finally, a new, fully annotated bibliography serves as yet another resource for parents and their children. Now That You Know won the Gay Book Award of the ALA Gay Task Force. Its authors were praised by the Advocate for succeeding in bringing parents and whole families "from the first moments of revelation through the guilt and recrimination, emerging on the other side of tolerence in love and joy."
