Karen McClintock is an psychologist, author, teacher, and pastor. 

Much of her writing and her workshops focus on eradicating sexual shame.  It's a subject she knows from her own family: McClintock's father was gay, at a time and place in America when many men could not afford to be publicly gay. 

It's a story she tells in her new book My Father's Closet.  She joins us with details of the discovery and processing of the big news in her family.
