Family Outing

What Happened when I Found Out My Mother was Gay : a Memoir

Author: Troy Johnson
ISBN: 9781559708715

Like most teenagers, Troy Johnson was obsessed with sex, but his coming of age took a sharp turn when--in the era before "Don't ask, don't tell"--He found out his mother was a lesbian. His head spun, and the questions came hard and fast: Does that mean Mom cruises schoolyards? Does that mean I have the gay gene? At the time, he felt like the only person in this agonizing position, not knowing that 10 million Americans--one in every thirty people--have at least one lesbian, gay, bisexual, or transgender parent (according to COLAGE, Children of Lesbians and Gays Everywhere). With blistering wit and candor, Family Outing movingly details the metamorphosis of an average kid from mom-hating bigot to Pride-going breeder, taking head-on the politics of sexual identity, the delusions of suburban delinquency, and the salvation of getting a clue.--From publisher description.
