Bible-thumper Nancy Heche's
misguided memoir gnores
unspeakable incestuous abuse that
Anne suffered at the hands of her
closeted father, who died of AIDS
By Daniel A. Kusner Life+Style Editor
Anne's mom, Nancy Heche, visited North
Texas last week to promote a new memoir, "The
Truth Comes Out: The Story of My Heart's
Transformation" (Regan Books, 2006). And
about a month ago, her publicist started jerking
me around — asking if I wanted to interview her,
knowing that Dallas Voice is a gay publication.
The publicist explained that Nancy had a new
message of "respect" and "love" for the gay
The interview would certainly be newsworthy.
Nancy is a popular speaker on the ex-gay circuit.
Just last year, she appeared at a Focus on the
Family event that explored curing "preventable
and treatable" homosexuality. Not only is
Nancy the mom of a famous actress, she's a
psychotherapist and has a doctorate in theology
from a seminary in Evanston, 111. — not

Has Nancy changed her anti-gay stripes?
I quickly got the gist of her message while
reading the one-sheet that accompanied the
book. This phrase leaped off the page: "[Nancy]
Heche was forced to deal with disdain toward the
Anytime you catch someone using a buzz
term like "homosexual lifesU'le," you know
you're dealing with an ignoramus who's smart
enough to know better.
An interview with Dallas Voice was never
scheduled — I suspect because in the past few
weeks, gay media outlets across the country had
already been tipped off about the "hate the sin"-
tone of the book, which has been rightfully
The Heche family history is a sordid tale.
Nancy's husband and Anne's father, Don Heche,
was a DL nightmare and one of the first cases of

Crazy" Anne appear more credible than ever.

Religion dominated the Heche family's every
move: bible study, church choir, summer ecu-
menical conferences, Methodism, Baptism,
evangelicalism, fundamentalism, Calvinism and
something called "the heretical Arminian doc-
trine of free will."
By all accounts, Don was a rotten and weird
dad: physically attractive, exceptionally creative
and a mind-game expert.
When she's not thoroughly detailing the minu-
tiae of Don and Nancy's budding romance at
Bible camp, Nancy's book primarily focuses on
Don's deception. She continually explains that
even though Don was a raging freak and obvious
liar, she never answered the constant ringing of
the Clue Phone. Faith in her Bible-sanctioned
marriage made Nancy blind, deaf and stupid.
Nancy and Don had five kids to care for, Anne
