Before becoming a star of the show Queer Eye, Tan France was a member of one of the very few South Asian, Muslim families living in South Yorkshire, England, where he was routinely bullied for both his culture and his skin color. To avoid further abuse and a rift with his family, he did not come out as gay until the age of 34. In this memoir, France illuminates his winding journey of coming of age, finding his voice (and style!), and marrying the love of his life -― a Mormon cowboy from Salt Lake City. He shares the lessons he's learned about being a successful businessman, a devoted spouse, and the importance of self-acceptance.
