Love, Ellen: A Mother/Daughter
Journey by Betty Degeneres
More than 20 years have passed since Ellen DeGeneres came out to her
mother on a beach in Mississippi. Stunned, Betty DeGeneres could only
think of her own disappointed expectations. As she put her arms around
her daughter, she was struck by the realization that she would never see
Ellens picture on the engagements page of the Times-Picayune, her local
paper. That Ellen would eventually appear on the front page of the
Picayune and countless newspapers and magazines around the world is
an irony not lost on her mother: If I had known she was going to grow up
to be Ellen DeGeneres, Betty quips, I would have taken more pictures.
Now the spokesperson for the Human Rights Campaigns National Coming
Out Project, Betty DeGeneres travels the country explaining how she
came to terms with her daughters sexuality, and how love and acceptance
can transform a family. Love, Ellen is an extension of her warm and much-
admired public speaking, providing insight into her own life as well as
Ellens and arguing for further education, compassion, and the passage of
antidiscrimination laws. --Regina Marler
Personal Review: Love, Ellen: A Mother/Daughter Journey by
I cannot stress how much this book has changed my life.
When I first came out of the closet, it was obvious that while my mother
was trying to accept this, she was having a hard time of it. After reading
only the introduction to this book, I raced to her room and asked her to
My mother is an incredibly busy woman, and I have given her many books
to read over the years. This is the very first time she ever finished one I
brought to her attention, and it had a profound impact on our relationship.
Betty DeGeneres gives family members a story they can relate to, a new
way of looking at it, and resources for them to check out... But it is by no
means a dry account. It is deeply personal and deeply touching, and I can
never thank Ms. Betty enough for writing it.
