Amazon 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 US House of Representatives. -- Regina Marler, Amazon.com

Synopsis

A self-help book for parents and teens-to-early-twenties on coming out. Chastity Bono (daughter of Cher and Sonny) interweaves the story of her own experience with her parents with those of many others, offering practical advice on seeing yourself as normal (parents and kids alike). This is a frank account of her own and others' rites of passage, and a clear case for the acknowledgement being a form of empowerment for herself and others, parent and child.
