Editorial Reviews

Review

Essential reading for anyone involved in a counseling position and even parents who are having difficulties with helping their children to come out.

(Lezly Herbert Out in Perth)

Coming Out, Coming Home is an informative and accessible book that contains myriad insights into the many obstacles, both internal and external, that families face as gay and lesbian children reach out for acceptance and support.

(Journal of Homosexuality 1900-01-00)

Review

LaSala draws on years of working with families and their gay and lesbian children to write a warm and wonderfully compassionate book. With insight and wisdom, his study examines very real and honest stories of how gay and lesbian people cope with accepting their families and how parents and siblings work to love and protect their offspring. It takes a remarkable look into the human condition of gay and lesbian struggles in the twenty-first century, and I highly recommend it.

(Gilbert Herdt, San Francisco State University, and coauthor of Children of Horizons: How Gay and Lesbian Teens are Leading a New Way Out of the Closet)

Even as a Social Worker, I found myself in unchartered territory when my daughter explained to me that she was gay....I had heard about this book from a friend and purchased it the same night that my daughter came out to me. It was a life saver at the moment and helped me to better understand the "process" it would be as a parent of a gay or lesbian child and that what I was feeling was completely normal - I strongly encourage any parent who finds themselves in the same situation to purchase this book!!

Dr. LaSala's book invites readers to listen in as lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender young people reveal themselves to their parents. We see families break through the tension of pre-disclosure into the drama that often comes with revelation, and, finally, achieve hard-won benefits as they reach the calm that eventually follows.

Balancing case narratives with concise recommendations, Dr. LaSala gives us a book that delivers value to both lay readers and professionals alike.

The best writing moves us to new levels of understanding and action. This one achieves that standard. Coming Out, Coming Home introduces readers to young people who refuse to be diminished by homophobia. Instead they insist on claiming their place in the world. In doing so they transform their families and communities. And while witnessing their courage we gain understanding, inspiration, and hope.
