‘Queer Eye’s’ Tan France Is Writing a Memoir and We Are PUMPED
Just two short weeks after fellow Fab Five member Antoni Porowski announced his cookbook deal, Tan France is now publishing a memoir in spring of 2019.
EW shared the official synopsis with it’s readers yesterday morning,
British born Tan France, the ‘Fab Five’ fashion expert on Netflix’s smash-hit Queer Eye reboot, has been breaking down barriers not only with his keen fashion sense but also as the first openly gay Muslim on western television. His memoir will be filled with his trademark humor, savvy sense of style, radical compassion, as well as very personal revelations. For the first time, he will share his story of growing up gay in a traditional Muslim family as one of the few people of color in a small town in Northern England. And he shares the experience of coming out to his Pakistani family at the age of 34, finally revealing to them that he is happily married to his partner of over 10 years, a self-described gay Mormon cowboy from Salt Lake City. Humorous and poignant personal essays will be peppered with style advice, funny lists, and the truisms that Tan has accumulated in his journey from Doncaster, England, to Netflix.
In a statement, France said that the book is “meant to spread joy, personal acceptance, and most of all, understanding.”
The untitled memoir isn’t available for preorder yet.
