@expert - coming out books
Hi, I've decided to come out this easter.

I need help in terms of getting the right book/s for my parents.
I've been told that it's a good idea to have some reading material ready for parents who have just learned that a child is gay. I would appreciate the titles, and where I can buy the books, in Cape town.
Thank you!
