Editorial Reviews for this title:
Synopsis:
From Chastity Bono, daughter of Sonny & Cher, heroine of the gay community: the first comprehensive guide to the coming-out process from the perspective of both gays & lesbians & their parents.

Review:
Family Outing is two books in one: a memoir of Chastity Bono's experience coming out as a lesbian to her famous parents and a look at the difficulties and triumphs that are part of every uncloseted homosexual's family life, with narratives drawn from interviews with members of Parents and Friends of Lesbians and Gays (PFLAG). Sometimes the two projects work against each other, but for the most part, Bono is right in assuming that her story reflects something larger in the culture and that others' stories, in turn, bear on her own experience. Readers skimming for intimate details about the mother-daughter conflict between Cher and Chastity won't be disappointed by Bono's sensitively written account. For a long time, Cher overlooked the troubling evidence of her daughter's emerging sexual identity: "Instead, she focused on superficial issues that bothered her: my short hair, my mannish clothes, my weight." Their relationship deteriorated, and it was Sonny to whom Chastity eventually confided; ironically, the father who offered immediate, warm acceptance of his daughter's lesbianism would later sponsor the 1996 Defense of Marriage Act in the House of Representatives. --Regina Marler

Book Description: Little, Brown Company, United States, 1998. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 236 x 157 mm. Language: English Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. In Family Outing Chastity weaves her own dramatic story into those of other gays and lesbians to illustrate the phases, pitfalls, and rewards of coming out. We hear how gays and lesbians often feel indescribably different when they are quite young, how they come to recognize and explore that difference in themselves and then deal, in various ways, with parents reactions, those of friends and coworkers, and their own unearthed homophobia. Ultimately, we learn how enormously empowering the whole process can be. While Family Outing provides sensible, helpful advice to gays and lesbians who are thinking about coming out, it is also an important primer for parents. We hear parents talk about their difficult - but ultimately successful and satisfying - journey through their part of the coming-out experience. And in conversations with Chastity, Cher tells her side of the story, relating her suspicion, denial, confrontation, and eventual acceptance of her daughter s sexual orientation. Practical, revealing, and utterly necessary, Family Outing is a guide like no other. Bookseller Inventory # APC9780316102339
