Summary
Explores the family, the first place where all people, straight, gay, and bisexual, learn homophobia. For it is within the family that homophobia begins to control people's lives, whether as perpetrators or recipients. Uncovers the hidden crime of "familial homophobia" and moves it into the open for social and political scrutiny. Illustrates how societal homophobia is rooted in the family but reaches into all levels of social interaction, including how gay people treat each other. Probes the complex issues involved and prescribes third party interventions on the part of both individuals and institutions of authority so that we can all live a better life together on truly equal terms
