This is the revised and expanded edition of an American classic, published at a time when public discussion about homosexuality was taboo. In 1979 when My Son Eric was originally published, the world was a much different place than it is today for gay men and lesbians. Although the Stonewall Riots had occurred ten years before, support organizations, such as Parents and Friends of Lesbians and Gays (PFLAG) and the Gay Activist Alliance, were slowly forming. Mary Borhek has spent twenty years at the center of many of the advancements in gay and lesbian life in this country. Through My Son Eric, she continues to sound the trumpet for love and acceptance.
