Abstract:

"Based upon discussion and interviews conducted with parents belonging to P-FLAG (Parents, Families and Friends of Lesbians and Gays), a support and advocacy group with over four hundred chapters internationally, Beyond Acceptance provides parents with the comfort and knowledge needed to accept their gay children and build stronger relationships with them. It provides accurate, documented answers to the questions that surface after the initial shock and addresses such concerns as: "Is it a choice?" "Can it be changed?" and "Did the parents 'cause' their child to be gay?"" "With extensive testimony from other parents, this book lets mothers and fathers know that they are not alone and helps them through the emotional stages leading to reconciliation with their children."--Jacket.
