In this heartfelt, funny, touching memoir, Tan France, star of Netflix’s smash-hit QUEER EYE, tells his origin story for the first time. With his trademark with, humor and radical compassion, Tan reveals what it was like to grow up gay in a traditional Muslim family, as one of the few people of color in Doncaster, England. He illuminates his winding journey of coming of age, finding his voice (and style!), and how he finally came out to his family at the age of 34 revealing that he was happily married to the love of his life — a Mormon cowboy from Salt Lake City. In Tan’s own words, “The book is meant to spread joy, personal acceptance, and most of all understanding. Each of us is living our own private journey, and the more we know about each other, the healthier and happier the world will be”.
This book took me awhile to listen to but all audio books take me awhile to listen to, but I would still recommend this book to everyone. I choose this book because I am a huge Queer Eye fan and have already read a book by Jonathan Van Ness and wanted to know more about the cast. Queer liturature is something I have not read enough about.
I found the subject matter to be honest and covering a broad range of subjects that I found interesting. The author wasn’t look at me I’m gay he was I’m gay and this is how it has affected me personally take it as you will. Tan France wasn’t pushy, he was open and honest in a way I found interesting. I think its a good good about what it’s like to be gay and middle eastern.
Everyone should read this book. Fans of Queer Eye will love this book because it gives you insight into a quite character but it will also be interesting to people who are looking to start reading queer literature because it’s up beat but not to complicated. People who have read alot of queer literature will like this book because it’s honest about real life in the UK and the USA.
