Enlightening and positive, informative and compassionate, Now That You Know has become a standard reference for families with gay sons or daughters.
Written by two mothers of gay children, the book 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 parents up-to-date on the pressing health and emotional issues with a new postscript to their chapter on AIDS. They recognize that parents need to reach out to other parents and have completely updated their chapter on support groups, including PFLAG.
Finally, a new, fully annotated bibliography serves as yet another resource for parents and children alike. ′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 who families ′from the first moments of revelation through the guilt and recrimination, emerging on the other side of tolerance in love and joy.′
