'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.' Growing up gay in a traditional South Asian family in South Yorkshire, Tan France could never have imagined he'd become part of a worldwide phenomenon. One of the few people of colour at his school, he experienced racist bullies, found solace at his grandad's denim factory and eventually discovered his true calling at fashion college. Told with his trademark humour, for the first time Tan reveals the experiences that have made him the witty, compassionate man he is today. From meeting the love of his life Rob (a Mormon cowboy from Salt Lake City) to juggling three demanding businesses, Tan charts the highs and lows on his path to Queer Eye. And of course he can't help but pepper this book with fashion dos and don'ts. Full of candid observations about US and UK cultural differences, celebrity encounters, and behind-the-scenes revelations about Queer Eye, Naturally Tan gives us Tan's unique perspective on the happiness to be found in being yourself.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Tan's book is moving, insightful, and hilare. Any bad stories about me are totally untrue, but the rest is brilliant. Best book of the millennium!" * Jonathan Van Ness *
"Just when I thought I knew everything about Tan, he hits me with this. His story is so heartwarming, and wickedly funny." * Antoni Porowski *
"Who hasn't tried the French tuck? Peppered with fashion dos and don't s, the memoir of arguably Doncaster's most famous TV export is a must for any Queer Eye fan." * Evening Standard *
"It's full of everything you'd hope to read from Netflix's most popular fashion expert - styling tips, tongue-in-cheek quips and a candid, conversational dive into his personal life ... It's hard to imagine how readers wouldn't be touched by at least one of the many stories Tan tells" * Refinery29 *
"A breezy and refreshingly candid look at the man behind the patterned shirts ... a genuinely fascinating life story" * Irish Times *

“Honest and insightful”

I only recently started watching Queer Eye, and Tan has always been my favourite partly because he comes from South Yorkshire where I live.
I enjoyed the format of the book with fashion tips and personal anecdotes... More
