Now that He is out: the Challenges and Joys of Having a Gay Son is one of the most beautifully written books I have ever read. The richness of ideas and information in this book give readers from both sides of the family dynamic the morale support they need to come to terms with the entire spectrum of feelings surrounding the announcement of a son that he is gay. Dr. Kantor explores the causes of common parental reactions, and suggests ways to achieve mutual understanding, richer relationships, and personal growth for both parents and son. Even if this subject does not apply to your own situation, this book would make an amazing and thoughtful gift for anyone who does have a gay son. Highly recommended!
