Coming Out to Parents

A Two-Way Survival Guide for Lesbians and Gay Men and Their Parents
by Mary V. Borhek
1993, The Pilgrim Press, ISBN: 0-8298-0957-0

Mary Borhek's best-selling Coming Out to Parents has served as a twin beacon of wisdom and practical advice since its initial publication. This thoroughly revised and updated edition reflects a decade more of intensive research and activism on the author's part and demonstrates her keen and compassionate awareness of how the tradgedy of AIDS has impacted the gay community -- and the coming-out process.
   In addition to a new chapter on living in the age of HIV/AIDS, Borhek has also expanded her discussion of religious viewpoints on homosexuality that both exposes myths and reflects the most up-to-date theological perspectives on this volatile issue.
   For gays and lesbians, Coming Out to Parents explores the fears and misgivings accompanying the revelation of themselves to their parents, providing suggestions on how and when to come out, what reactions to expect, and how to deal with the awkwardness that follows. For parents, the book guides them through the natural feelings of grief and loss and shows how understanding, compassion, and insight can lead to an even deeper love between the parent and the finally whole child.
   Mary V. Borhek is the author of My Son Eric (Pilgrim Press). She is active in gay rights organizations and currently lives in Pennsylvania.
