|Opening the Door: A Mother's Journey When Her Son Comes Out |
Opening the Door is about one mother's efforts to understand her son's life and be part of his world. It will inform readers of how family values can be shaken, the confusion about feelings and the unexpected reactions that can tip a family off balance when your child tells you they're gay. You don't have to have a gay son or lesbian daughter to find this book of interest. It intends to give readers greater understanding of the issues involved.
Since author Shelley Argent's son 'came out', advocacy and community education has become a major part of her life. Opening the Door is about Argent's journey over the past decade supporting families, educating the public and advocating for equality. She was awarded an OAM in 2005 for her efforts in assisting understanding and acceptance of those living in the gay community. Argent is the national spokesperson for PFLAG (Parents & Friends of Lesbians & Gays) Australia.
This edition of Opening the Door also includes Argent's previous book Sexuality is Not a Choice. (PFLAG Brisbane)
