Kevin Newman, left, award-winning anchorman and journalist with CTV, joined his son, Alex, on campus earlier this week to discuss their new book, All Out: A Father and Son Confront the Hard Truths That Made Them Better Men. Newman, who graduated from Western in 1981 with a degree in Political Science, co-authored the book with Alex, disclosing the difficulties of balancing a career and parenting a child – a gay child – who unbeknownst to him, was like his father in many ways. The book, which came out earlier this month, has been praised for its honesty and humour and said to resonate with all parents and children, gay or not, who struggled to understand themselves and one another.
