educating children appropriately about gay love/sex

I am fairly new to this community and this is my first post so please be gentle! I am trying to find information on how to explain to a child between the ages of 9 - 11 about gay sex. In the story, her Father is in a committed relationship with his lover and she is asking questions. I am not looking for anything graphic (no squickiness) but need to know what kind of questions she would be asking. When I was that age I knew the mechanics of sex but I grew up in a rural area. This chid is from an urban, upper middle class social group. I have tried using google with phrases like "explaining gay sex", "gay sex education", "questions children ask about gay sex". I would be interested in links or actual references to books (especially children's books). I have been directed to wikipedia, Amazon, Barnes and noble, and gay web sites. Any help you could give me would be really appreciated! I am not very technological and technology often times defeats me.
