"An incredibly compelling and helpful read for parents--or anyone out there--who would like to learn more about the dual processes of raising a gay or lesbian child and growing up as gay or lesbian." --Cason Crane, Founder of The Rainbow Summits Project and LogoTV's Youth Trailblazer Honoree, 2013

Coming out can be fraught with difficulty for both parents and child--but Wesley C. Davidson, a popular blogger on gay rights issues, and Dr. Jonathan Tobkes, a New York City-based psychiatrist, provide a road map so families can better navigate this rocky emotional terrain. Emphasizing communication and unconditional love, Davidson and Tobkes help parents untangle their own feelings, identify and overcome barriers to acceptance, encourage strong self-esteem in their child, handle negative or hostile reactions to their child's sexual identity, and more. Filled with case studies and interviews, along with useful action plans and conversation starters, this is a positive, progressive guide to raising healthy, well-adjusted adults.
