The CAMP Rehoboth Book Club is a queer-facilitated discussion group dedicated to reading novels about queer topics and/or books by queer authors that tackle a variety of interest and subject matters. We alternate between fiction, non-fiction, YA. This group typically meets on the last Monday of every month starting at 5:30 PM on Zoom. Use the link at the bottom of this page to register for the zoom.
Our book club aims to bring all members of our community together in a safe, supportive and inclusive space to enjoy literature, conversation and most of all engage with each other. This group is open to all regardless of sexuality and gender.
The Book Club Selection for February is Hi Honey, I'm Homo! by Matt Baume, who will join the meeting this month to discuss the book.

“Hi Honey, I’m Homo is a heartbreaking historical document, but ultimately one that will leave the reader feeling proud of how something as maligned and disposable as the network sitcom used comedy to bring about such profound and important social progress.”
“[A] well-curated compendium of prime time broadcasting . . . Baume is a companionable guide.”
Behind the scenes of the most popular sitcoms of the 20th century, a revolution was brewing.
For decades, amidst the bright lights, studio-audience laughs, and absurdly large apartment sets, the real-life story of American LGBTQ+ liberation unfolded in plain sight in front of millions of viewers, most of whom were laughing too hard to mind.
From flamboyant relatives on Bewitched to closely-guarded secrets on All in the Family, from network-censor fights over Soap to behind-the-scenes activism on the set of The Golden Girls, from Ellen’s culture clash and Will & Grace’s mixed reception to Modern Family’s primetime power-couple, Hi Honey, I’m Homo! is the story not only of how subversive queer comedy transformed the American sitcom, from its inception through today, but how our favorite sitcoms transformed, and continue to transform, America.
Accessible, entertaining, and informative, Hi Honey, I’m Homo! features commentary and interviews from celebrities, behind-the-scenes creators, and more.
