Changing Hands presents Tan France: Naturally Tan: A Memoir

Fri Jun. 14 at 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Event Details

Author, fashion designer, and star of Netflix's overnight sensation Queer Eye, Tan France shares his memoir โ€“ telling the origin story of one of the few openly gay South Asian men on television.

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 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."
