“You’re going to be gay”

Stereotypes are funny,” said Shann Carr, stirring a cup of tea at Michael’s Diner in Rancho Mirage.

She flips her book open to a page of a girl in a football uniform.

“It might not be politically correct, but sometimes stereotypes are there for a reason,” she said.

Carr, a lesbian stand-up comedian, is the author of a new book, “You’re Going to be Gay!”

She points to a photo of a boy in a spandex figure skating outfit.

“I mean, come on!” she laughed. “He knew!”

The soft-cover book contains the childhood photos of 50 gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender adults, alongside funny quotes about growing up gay.

The response so far has been overwhelmingly positive.

When people look at the book, Carr said, their eyes usually dart all over the place. They find something they identify with and they laugh.

Most say, “Oh, do I have the photo for you.”

    I wish someone would have told me a lot sooner (most adults I think already knew) so I could have saved myself some pain and a lot of hetero slutting around.

    Yeah, the hetero slutting around could be bad straight just the same. That’s a lesson I learn over and over and over again.
