"Straight From the Heart explores parents' journeys to a new understanding of their lesbian and gay children by presenting simple stories about real people: a police chief who talks about how proud he is of his lesbian daughter, a Mormon couple whose son is believed to be the first gay man in Idaho to have died from AIDS, and a black woman and her two lesbian daughters who had been accused of 'catching' their lesbianism from white people. One of the most moving segments revolves around the late Dr. Roscoe Thorne, father of gay naval aviator Tracy Thorne, who prefaces his support for his son by telling us: 'I had a heck of a time giving up prejudice. I was born in Mississippi and raised there and I didn't think black folks was as good as I was because I was taught that.'" -- Slipcase.
