Parents reading material

Does anyone know of any good reading material one could give their parents after coming out to them?
Would be appreciated.

If your folks are Afrikaans, try Dina Joubert's "Onlogiese Liefde". She is a mother of a gay son, and also a ministers wife, and it is about her whole process of dealing with it. GREAT reading for parents. Also "'n Kas is vir Klere" by Pieter Cilliers (producer of Kwela and other TV programmes). Really great reading, about his life story, dealing with being gay, becoming a minister in the church, internal struggles, etc etc. And then for hard facts, try "Oor Gay Wees" by Jean Du Plessis.
