It should start with the fact that in their era the beatniks really violated many moral frameworks (propaganda of homosexuality and polygamous number of sexual partners, for example).

Taken from an article (www.peremeny.ru)

"They all slept with each other. And to their health. In almost every text of the beatniks is thick, open, with details about it is written. "

Therefore, convincing conservatives or even homophobes in this matter is difficult due to their perception of the world. Long conversations with corroborating facts may help to change their point of view, but this does not mark the moment that "perversions" were still inherent in them like no one else and were partly a reinforcing piece of life in the style of "rhythm". The guys just knew how to easily break stereotypes and enjoy it as opposed to public judgments (which hippies later adopted from them).

And Kerouac himself, by the way, was least of all seen in such extremes :)

Never let them read William Burroughs, otherwise you will never convince them.

But seriously, you and your parents must have different views on life. Our parents are people who grew up under the USSR, under other social norms. The fact that for you "not perverts" may be unacceptable to them.

Invite them to read Kerouac himself. And hope that they will still delicately perceive those feelings between friends. Although with such prejudices it may not be effective anymore.
