Queer Eye star…

Go beyond the French tuck in this memoir by the beloved Fab Five stylist. From growing up as one of few families of color in a small town in England to becoming an icon for a new generation of Queer Eye viewers, his unique story is as heartwarming as an episode of the show.

Описание

This program is read by the author, with a special guest appearance!

In this heartfelt, funny, and touching memoir, one of the stars of Netflix's Emmy Award-winning smash-hit Queer Eye reveals how an Englishman raised in a traditionally religious home became a fashion icon—and the first openly gay, South Asian man on television—simply by being Naturally Tan.

Before he became famous as one of the Fab Five makeover experts, Tan France was the youngest child in his family, growing up in South Yorkshire, England. As a member of one of the very few South Asian, Muslim families living in the predominantly white community, he was routinely bullied for both his culture and his skin color.

Knowing he was gay from an early age, Tan harbored that secret to avoid further racial harassment and potentially cause a rift between him and his family. It was a secret he would keep from them until finally coming out at the age of 34—happily married to Rob, a Mormon cowboy from Salt Lake City.

With his trademark wit, humor, and radical compassion, Tan shares his journey and the lessons he's learned along the way about being a successful businessman, a devoted spouse, and self-acceptance. From navigating the gay community, to finding the love of his life, to creating a popular ladies' clothing lines for Kingdom & State and Rachel Parcell, Inc. to joining Antoni Porowski, Karamo Brown, Bobby Berk, and Jonathan Van Ness on Queer Eye as positive, representative celebrity role models for LGBTQ people, Tan followed his own path to develop his signature style and embrace life on his own terms.

Full of his candid observations about US and UK cultural differences, social media behavior, celebrity encounters, behind-the-scenes realities of reality TV, and—of course—fashion tips, Tan gives his unique perspective on the happiness to be found in being yourself.

    Just love his light heartedness in sharing his story and truth.

    Was very entertaining and gave an intimate look into a normal man who just so happen to be brown, gay and star. I loved the book and recommend it to anyone wanting something interesting and fun to read. I hope the other men of the fab five write one too.
  • (5/5)
    I never read memoirs, but I picked this up on a whim and loved it. Tan is my favorite member of the Fab Five and this was such an enjoyable read, even though it was outside of my comfort zone.
  • (4/5)
    Very poignant. I would have to say 911 is my favorite chapter. I also love the bond and love he and his husband have. Obviously something I have not experienced.
  • (5/5)
    Great book. It was wonderful to hear about Tan's experiences and learn more about him.

    This was a great book. I wasn’t expecting it to get so real so fast.
