Lesbian And Gay Families Speak Out Understanding The Joys And Challenges Of Diverse Family Life
"An important book whose time has come!"-Adele Starr, First President of PFLAG (Parents and Friends of Lesbians and Gays) National, and Larry Starr, Co-Founder of PFLAG, Los Angeles, CaliforniaWith an estimated six to fourteen million children living with a gay or lesbian parent, there is a real need for accurate information for and about the realities of these families. With honesty and compassion, Lesbian and Gay Families Speak Out explores the variety of issues they face: from interpersonal relationships and sexual and psychological development, to coming out, dealing with prejudice, and finding a spiritual foundation. Using the compelling stories of over two dozen families in which gay fathers and lesbian mothers are raising children in a wide variety or settings and styles, Drucker proves that children thrive in an environment of love, regardless of the number, gender, or sexual orientation of the adults who provide that love.
