Isn't frilly and foolish ... exceptional

Family Outing is an exceptional book. Chastity Bono is real, honest, and upfront. Not only does she tell us what it was like to "come out" to her famous parents (Sonny and Cher), but tells the stories of many ordinary, down-to-earth people. Chastity comes across as the type of person you could curl up on the sofa and just shoot the breeze. Just a great person.Ms. Bono has written a book that isn't depressing, isn't frilly and foolish, yet is emotionally bound without all the goos and gaas.I recommend Family Outing highly. Some day it'll be compulsive reading in schools. Excellent job, Chastity.

A wonderful resource

I couldn't have had a better guide for my youth! I read this book before coming out to my family in high school. I have to admit, it was the most helpful of all the resources i looked into. It was so wonderful to know that there were others out there just like me. This book was also an inspiration for my mother after i came out. I suggest that anyone struggling with their family during this particularly difficult time in their lives read this book and pass it on!

I was reading about my own life

The tears that rolled down my cheeks as I read through this book were a reminder to me that I was certainly not alone when it came to "outing" myself to friends and family. Because this comes straight from real life experiences, you take the ride with Chastity and those amazing people she spoke to throughout her book and read about their various experiences in "coming out". I know that many people of all ages who have or are going to "come out" should at least try to read this amazing book because believe me, it made me a lot wiser, stronger and confident and finally telling my family and friends that I was a lesbian not only became easier but gave me a real sence of freedom to finally be me.

"Truly Touched"

This is definitely the book you want to read before you face the difficulties you can have with telling your family and friends your gay. I wish there had been such a book when I was growing up. Chastity not only tells you about her struggles with her coming out, which at times are very entertaining, but she shares some other great stories and blends them with her own story very gracefully. You will not be disappointed by reading this book even if you have already experienced your coming out. Even though I had already dealt with my coming out, long before this book was even a thought in Chastity's mind, it gave me a better understanding of the things I experienced growing up a lesbian. This book is entertaining and educational and I hope you will enjoy it as much as I have enjoyed it! Thank you Chastity, wherever you are!

Invaluable tool for gays, lesbians, their family & friends

Family Outing is a smart and much-needed book. Chastity Bono's own story of the coming out process is told along with the stories of many other lesbians and gays at different phases of the process. This book is for absolutely everyone--a daughter can read it and then hand it over to her father, for example--and it is designed to be passed around. As Chastity Bono said at a book signing in New York: "Coming out is really a family affair." Buy this book for your family!
