Summary "Fashion and compassion make the man. In this heartfelt, funny, touching memoir, Tan France tells his origin story for the first time. With his trademark wit, humor, and radical compassion, Tan reveals what it was like to grow up gay in a traditional South Asian family, as one of the few people of color in South Yorkshire, England. He illuminates his winding path of coming of age, finding his voice (and style!), and marrying the love of his life--a Mormon cowboy from Salt Lake City. From one of the stars of Netflix's runaway hit show Queer Eye, Naturally Tan is so much more than fashion dos and don'ts--though of course Tan can't resist steering everyone away from boot-cut jeans! Full of candid observations about U.S. and U.K. cultural differences, what he sees when you slide into his DMs, celebrity encounters, and the behind-the scenes realities of 'reality TV,' Naturally Tan gives us Tan's unique perspective on the happiness to be found in being yourself. 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 one another, the healthier and happier the world will be.'Fashion and compassion make the man.
