Book Bites: Out, Loud and Laughing

BRISTOL, Connecticut, U.S.A. — Out Loud & Laughing is a collection of skits, stories and monologues by today’s leading gay and lesbian comedians.

This book truly proves that anything can be twisted to invoke humor, showing the lighter side of everything from body piercing to family relations.

The reader need not be gay or lesbian to appreciate the jokes and situations presented, since most of the humor is based on humanity rather than sexuality.

A big plus for this book is that 100 percent of its net royalties go to Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS, a performer’s union working against the disease nationwide. Not only are you buying the book, which in and of itself is an amusing read, but you are also supporting an important cause.

Whoever said a book was just paper?
