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 Ellen's 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 Campaign's National Coming Out Project, Betty DeGeneres travels the country explaining how she came to terms with her daughter's 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 Ellen's and arguing for further education, compassion, and the passage of antidiscrimination laws. --Regina Marler


"Mom, I'm gay." With three little words, gay children can change their parents' lives forever. Yet at the same times it's a chance for those parents to realize nothing, really, has changed at all; same kid, same life, same bond of enduring love.

Twenty years ago, during a walk on a Mississippi beach, Ellen DeGeneres spoke those simple, powerful words to her mother. That emotional moment eventually brought mother and daughter closer than ever, but not without a struggle. Coming from a republican family with conservative values, Betty needed time and education to understand her daughter's homosexuality -- but her ultimate acceptance would set the stage for a far more public coming out, one that would change history.

In Love, Ellen, Betty DeGeneres tells her story; the complicated path to acceptance and the deepening of her friendship with her daughter; the media's scrutiny of their family life; the painful and often inspiring stories she's heard on the road as the first non-gay spokesperson for the Human Rights Campaigns National Coming Out Project.

With a mother's love, clear minded common sense, and hard won wisdom, Betty DeGeneres offers up her own very personal memoir to help parents understand their gay children, and to help sons and daughters who have been rejected by their families feel less alone.

I'm a gay male who purchased a copy of Betty's book for my own reading. By the time I was done, I bought two more copies - one for my parents and another for my sister. I realized that they might benefit from a book written from "their" point of view.
It's so important that messages like Betty's get out to the world. Not just the gay and lesbian world, but the world in general. Simply put - "Love one another."
I can only hope and wish that Oprah or some other high-profile media outlet picks up a copy and gives this book the promotion it deserves.
Isn't it funny how when kids are growing up, we tell them all just how special they are.... And then when they go and show just how special they are - what our responses can be.
Thank you Betty, for writing a book from your heart and soul. Nothing like this could be easy, and I thank you again for telling such a personal story so that it might benefit others.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Was für ein wundervolles Buch!!! 5. Januar 2000
Von Ein Kunde
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Noch nie zuvor hatte ich ein Buch gelesen, das einer Beziehung zwischen Mutter und Tochter so unendlich viel Liebe, Mitgefühl, Offenheit, Toleranz, Ehrlichkeit und Akzeptanz entgegenbringt und mit so viel Engagement und Verständnis die gay community unterstützt. So zeigt Betty's Biographie u.a. wie sie aufgrund ihrer doch konservativen Herkunft lernen mußte, Ellen's Outing zu verstehen, wie ihre Verhältnis zu Vance, Ellen und Anne ist und was ihr die Arbeit für die Human Rights Campaign bedeutet. Ich hätte nie gedacht, daß sich Betty mit dem HRC so für uns einsetzt und kämpft. Es lohnt sich auf alle Fälle, dieses Buch zu lesen, allein um zu erfahren, was für eine wundervolle Frau sie ist.

As a straight man who had to come to terms with having a gay family member, I could really relate to DeGeneres' description of going through a process of acceptance that didn't happen overnight. This is a book I will buy for other family members who haven't gotten to that place yet. I also enjoyed reading about the development of Ellen's career from a parent's point of view. The book is hard to put down -- funny, uplifting, moving -- with a message about tolerance I hope to pass on to my young son.

4.0 von 5 Sternen A huge mistake would be not to read this! 30. September 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
As a gay teen it's very hard to try and find somone to relate to. This book did just that. Starting with the beginning of Betty's life, right up until very recently, Betty told her story. It was truely an inspiration. It gave me the courage to finally come out to my mother, and more friends. It changed my outlook on certain things, it definantly gave me hope. I feel much more comforatable with myself and the people I'm around now. Although I still have a long way to go, much has changed for the better. It was the best thing I could think of to give my mother. Even though the book is more targteted to parents, not just of gay children, it is still a great thing for teens and young adults to read, not just gay teens and adults. BUY THIS BOOK!

Von Ein Kunde

I found Betty's memoir to a learning experience on how to accept a gay friend & or family member.I found that it took a long time for Betty to realize that Ellen was gay and counld'nt change for her sake.I enjoyed reading about how Ellen was as a child,her early struggles in the entertainment business, and dealing with her internal guilt with her sexual orientation.I would definately reccommend Betty's book to anyone who has a difficulty with homosexuality and the effects of people around them.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Informative, Witty and Insightful! 29. August 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
This book was an excellent source of encouragement and education for those who are gay and their family members. Betty Degeneres looks at sexuality and the issues that it brings in society today. She speaks of her journey after finding out her daughter Ellen is gay and the acceptance and closeness that came along afterwards through the years. This book is excellent reading for anyone with gay family members or friends, and for those of us who are still struggling with our own sexuality. I loved this book! Thank you Betty!

5.0 von 5 Sternen Mom, I'm Gay! A Mother's Process 7. September 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
As I read the book, 'Love, Ellen,' which was written by Ellen Degeneres' mother, Betty, the words stirred memories deep inside of me. I first laughed. I then cried. I was unquestionably moved.
Like Betty, my mother was brought up in the same generation and in a family with conservative values. Issue were not addressed. The 'G' and 'L' words were unspoken and closeted. It was the 'don't ask, don't tell policy,' where your secrets and feelings were stored in your inner vault.
Throughout 'Love, Ellen,' Betty leads the reader on a journey from a mother's perspective seemingly through the stages of grief, ranging from denial: 'Even as I tried to understand, I was in a state of denial. 'But Ellen, boys have always liked you, and you're so popular. You just need to meet the right one.'' anger: ''..Are you sure?' The question hung in the air. It sounded judgmental. I softened it, saying, 'I mean, couldn't this just be a phase?'' bargaining: 'I understand that my disappointment was not for Ellen. It was for me. I was the one whose marriages hadn't worked out according to expectations. Why on earth should she have to fulfill my dreams? Why not love her and support her as she fulfilled her own?' depression: '...Ellen never had an engagement picture in my hometown paper...I had always fantasized about seeing Ellen's picture there and about her marrying some fine man about myself as being the proud mother of the bride...I felt as if a dream had been shattered.'
...through the acceptance stage: 'Like most parents, I went through a process. It took me time to think about this, to sort out what was important, to get past my terrible ignorance and learn about homosexuality.
