Talking It Over: Understanding Sexual Diversity is a mother's story of recognizing and overcoming homophobia and a professional writer's published columns on gay and lesbian issues. Kay Mehl Miller is both mother and columnist, using her own experiences as parent of a gay son and as a trained therapist and scholar to illuminate how homophobia affects the individual, the family, and society. Talking It Over is a well-written and thoughtful work.
