Cover of the book
There must be 50 ways to tell your mother is a book by Lynn Sutcliffe, containing a number of "coming out" stories from a wide range of young women and men in the UK.[1]
"The book explores the best ways of combating the fear many people face before telling their family members about their sexuality; the means by which young people can express their pride and help fight prejudice; and the all-important process of building strong and lasting relationships with gay friends and partners. There is a unique interactive role-play section for groups of friends to work from in developing the ideas and themes in the book. Ideal for schools, youth groups and colleges."[2]

The book is divided into three sections: “Coming Out”, “Shouting Out” and “Moving On”.
