Family Outing (Paperback, 1st Back Bay pbk. ed): Chastity Bono, Billie Fitzpatrick Family Outing (Paperback, 1st Back Bay pbk. ed)
Chastity Bono, Billie Fitzpatrick

From Chastity Bono, daughter of Sonny and Cher, heroine of the gay community: the first comprehensive narrative guide to the coming-out process from the perspective of gays and lesbians and their parents.

Chastity Bono grew up in the spotlight cast on her parents. But nothing could have prepared her for the events of December 1990, when the tabloid newspaper the Star outed her to the world. At the time only her close friends and family knew she was gay; after the shock of that public revelation, Chastity retreated back into the closet. Coming out to her family had been difficult enough: although her father had been supportive and accepting, her mother threw her out of the house for three days. After the Star outing, it would be another five years until Chastity would decide, with her parents' blessing, to come out publicly on her own terms - and to unexpected acclaim - on the cover of The Advocate.

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 her own voice, Cher tells her side of Chastity's story, relating her suspicion, denial, confrontation, and eventual acceptance of her daughter's sexual orientation. For, as Chastity says, "Parents come out too."

Practical, cogent, and personally revealing, Family Outing is a guide like no other, necessary for anyone who's ever been involved in any aspect of the coming-out process.

"Diabetes could have killed me. Instead, it saved my life."--Sherri Shepherd

The day that actress, comedian, and cohost of The View Sherri Shepherd was diagnosed with the Big D--type 2 diabetes--she didn't see it coming. But she should have. Sherri had spent years battling excess weight, ignoring the warning that she was prediabetic, avoiding doctors, and denying some very clear signs that a diabetes diagnosis was imminent. Even watching the disease take her mother's life at the age of forty-one didn't sound the alarm for Sherri. But when D Day came, she had a diagnosis in hand and a child of her own. Sherri knew she needed to take a cold, hard look at the way she was living and make a choice: she could completely overhaul her life and reevaluate her relationship to food and exercise, or continue on a path that could leave her son growing up without his mother. The choice was easy. Putting the choice into action was a little more difficult.

If you're one of the 100 million Americans diagnosed with prediabetes or diabetes each year, or one of the 130 million people who are overweight and at risk but don't know where to start, Plan D can provide life- changing results. Here, Sherri Shepherd breaks down the basics of the science of diabetes, explains how reversing your insulin resistance (the cause of type 2 diabetes) is the key, and offers support, humor, and the action plan you need to get results. With this medically supported plan, Sherri was able to lose forty pounds and keep it off. Through three key simple but effective strategies centered on diet, exercise, and taking control of the emotions that lead to poor food choices, Sherri offers readers a way to lose weight and control diabetes without feeling deprived, or chained to a strict, lifeless way of living. Plan D is flexible, sensible, and straight-forward, and it works wherever you are on the spectrum--whether you're struggling to lose weight, are in the danger zone of prediabetes and looking to turn things around, or have already been diagnosed with diabetes.

Plan D will give you the facts you need to start changing your habits and your health now. With the help of her doctor, a leading endocrinologist, and a support group of family and close friends, Sherri changed her life. With Plan D, you can too.

The New York Times bestseller that asks: What happens on the journey from self-doubt to self-acceptance? Imagine knowing, for decades, that the person you are and the body you inhabit don't match up. Imagine pushing that feeling down so deep that you convince yourself, for years, that it doesn't even exist. Imagine the havoc wreaked by such a secret.Now, imagine living this life under the scrutiny of the public eye.Chaz Bono has lived this life. We first met him as Chastity, the darling girl on stage with her parents, Sonny and Cher. Then, we knew her as an out lesbian and gay activist. Through all of this, Chaz was plagued by a nagging feeling that he wasn't living the life meant for him. It wasn't until he admitted, first to himself, then to his family, and finally to the world, that he was a transgender man, that Chaz Bono fully embraced his true self. In Transition, Chaz shares his deeply moving and ultimately triumphant account of the physical and emotional process that brought him to a place of peace, and finally happiness. With a message to anyone who has ever felt that they couldn't be who they really are, Transition is as inspirational as it is intimate.
