Eye on Netflix Tan is the fashion expert on the series.I really didn t know a lot about Tan before reading his book I had heard of the Netflix series, Queer Eye but had never watched it.Tan was raised in a traditional Muslim family in South Yorkshire, England If you ask him when he first knew he was gay, he ll tell you he s always known He loves women, but he never thought of them as an option for his romantic future Tan never felt that his feelings were wrong or that he had to put a stop to them, but explains what it was like growing up Tan always knew he d marry a man Of course, he didn t know it would be a Mormon cowboy from Salt Lake City.Tan didn t care much for school but still managed to get very good grades Getting to and from school was dangerous due to the threat of physical violence from the groups who yelled racial slurs at Tan and his siblings on a regular basis.Tan gives us insight into his first relationships as well as his marriage to husband, Rob His love for Rob really comes across and is lovely to read about He talks about the casting process for Queer Eye , how he became one of the Fab 5 , and some other bits about the show and his cast mates.I liked the PSA S public service announcements about T shirts, jeans, and There is some relationship advice First Date Do s and Don ts , some advice about employment Tan had over 30 jobs , some How to be a Good Boss advice, and of course some great fashion tips I know that Tan would probably hate my well loved sweatpants and how often I wear them Oh and if Tan is ever coming over to your house HIDE YOUR CROCS I know they are ugly, and many people hate them especially Tan but they are just so damn comfortable.The book took me longer to read as I kept stopping to Google something or watch something on YouTube or Netflix I stopped so I could watch an episode of Queer Eye because I wanted to see Tan in action I ended up binge watching the first season I loved it When Tan would mention something that happened in an episode I had to go find it When he talked about their appearance on Lip Sync Battle , I had to go watch that too.I really did enjoy learning so much about Tan His witty writing style was fun to read Naturally Tan was funny and entertaining, but it was also emotional and thought provoking Tan comes across as a kind, sincere, and unique person He doesn t seem to take himself too seriously He tells us about his own anxiety and insecurities and talks about how it can be strange giving advice to someone on the show when he didn t always feel so confident himself.I m really happy that I read this memoir I m now a big fan of Tan France and Queer Eye I love Tan s accent and I think the audiobook will also be great, especially if he is the narrator.I d like to thank St Martin s

of Tan s past and how he ended up on the much loved TV show in a non linear narrative peppered with his fashion tips and advice What makes this a fascinating read is that he is South Asian, gay and muslim, from a traditional and conservative family background, with a challenging childhood of growing up in Doncaster, Yorkshire, facing bullying and racism He comes across as warm and humorous, a real personality, a fashion designer who worked his way through a myriad of jobs prior to his audition for Queer Eye He relates falling in love with his husband, Rob, from Salt Lake City, a Mormon cowboy, giving us an endearing account of their relationship There are aspects of his life that Tan chooses to be less than forthcoming about, but that is his right and does not detract from the authenticity of who he is and the life he has lived This is an entertaining, often humorous and thought provoking memoir in which Tan comes across as so very human, touching on important issues such as the experience of being a muslim gay man in our contemporary world There was much that I could relate to, and Tan is open about who he is, his anxieties, dishing out life lessons such as the importance of being true to who and what you are, an important tenet of Queer Eye, a show that he gives us behind the scenes information about Many thanks to Random House Ebury for an ARC flag 80

of Tan France and the Netflix show Queer Eye until I receive the surprise book mail, advance copy for review I went on Netflix right after I open my book mail to watch two episodes from season 1 Tan worried about himself not being silly enough on the show compared to the other guys, but I thought their silliness is a bit annoying I do love the end of the show because the transformation is gorgeous From this book I learned that racism do exist in England too and not just in USA that I know of.This book is told in the first person point of view following Tan France, a Netflix Queer Eye star specializing in fashion He was born in England and experienced racism against Pakistanis for being a person of color He learned fashion from an early age through his grandfather s denim factory He worked many different jobs growing up and travel to USA often for fun While in USA he met Rob, now husband and they started dating Since he couldn t get married to a man to stay in USA with Rob, they continue their relationship long distance Later he started a business in the fashion industry to obtain work permit and eventually US green card.Naturally Tan is very well written and a fast paced read I enjoyed reading his experiences in starting a business and the stress of keeping it afloat Definitely interesting to learn about international press tours where Tan and the guys are in a room for up to 12 hours just answering questions from different reporters Each time they answer a question they have to be excited like it s their first time answering the question Sounds intense I m also surprised that Pakistanis wanting their skin white just like Asians I enjoy the different advices spread throughout the book Definitely a good memoir to read to obtain a glimpse into show biz, fashion, marriage, etc I highly recommend everyone to read this book Pro fast paced, page turner, England, humor, advices, starting a business in fashion, press tours, Netflix auditionsCon noneI rate

loves him I also loved reading about his first impressions of the rest of the guys on Queer Eye and how wrong he ended up being haha I appreciate Tan s honesty about things in this book like how things made him feel The only reason I knocked off a star is because this writing doesn t seem the best I appreciate the fact that Tan actually wrote this instead of using a ghostwriter you can obviously tell it was written by him I can hear his voice in this words but with that being said the writing still isn t the best, and this book kind of jumps back and forth and all over the place, which I know is the case for a lot of memoirs but I like a little structure when reading I also couldn t care less about fashion so I found myself skimming those sections where he went on and on about fashion, I know that s a huge part of Tan so I expected it in this book but I was mostly here for him talking about his childhood and his experiences on Queer Eye.Overall this was great I feel like I spent the last two hours in Tan s mind and it was a great time Now I desperately want to re binge Queer Eye haha I m counting down the days till season 4 airs next month flag 39 likesLike see review

them better since then It was also very surprising to see a gay South Asian person on such a mainstream popular show and he quickly became my favorite and I ve really wanted to know about Tan So I was so so excited when I got approved for the advance copy of his memoir and I think it s awesome that I m able to review this today, the premier of Season 3 Tan has always come across as the reserved one among the Fab 5, so I definitely was expecting to get a better read on him through this book and I wasn t let down His narrative style is witty, sassy and charming and this is a memoir you won t mind finishing in a single sitting He is also quite self deprecating, pointing out his own flaws and owning them while also being very forthright about some of his own opinions Peppered among the anecdotes from his life are some of his signature fashion tips and I definitely loved them Some of his advise felt out of place within the context of the chapters or the book sometimes, but I think we can t expect anything different from a designer stylist Despite the lighthearted way he tries to convey his story, there are many things he dealt with which are painful and heartbreaking to read about Especially the racism that he had to encounter for being one of the few people of color in a small town in England, and how the little things like walking back home from school were a lesson in survival were both unpleasant to read, but unsurprising because I think much has not changed since then in some places His particular mention that brown people can t run in airports even when you are late for your flight just hit me hard because that s so true and unfair There are many such observations that he makes about what brown people can or can t do and it s painful to realize that we have to keep all this things in mind just to live our lives peacefully Though I live in the US now, I grew up in India among people who looked like me, so seeing myself represented in media or other aspects of life was never an issue I realized the importance of it only after moving to a different country, so his issues about representation since childhood felt so much profound and I think this is such a harsh reality for most of the people of color who live in the west He is also quite forthcoming about a very painful episode in his life and I commend him for it, because it just goes on to show that just because someone is successful and making money doesn t mean everything is great with their life He is also pretty frank about the non glossy side of his celebrity life the incessant travel, innumerable press junkets, being away from his husband and feeling lonely, the toll it takes to keep up appearances in public while acknowledging how privileged he is I was actually surprised by the ease with which he seemed to have handled the fact that he was gay while also being Muslim and South Asian but I think it s a testament to the strength of his convictions He is also still very traditional in his mindset and that reflects in the relationship with his husband It feels like a great love story and they seem to be wonderful supportive partners and I loved reading the parts where he kept gushing about his husband Their first date and subsequent meetings are especially adorable and it really feels like they were meant to be together And there are so many things in the book that I found endearing because of the relatability The conservative nature of the family while growing up, all the nosy family members, the ways we are restricted in terms of dressing up or making friends or going out and how we all learn to lie to do what we want to do it was so reflective of my own life growing up that I found it very nostalgic It s also lovely to see him want to incorporate his culture within his style and I think his mehndi is a wonderful statement in that regard He is also quite open about the rampant colorism in the South Asian community and our obsession with being fair essentially white and associating lighter skin with beauty and his journey about realizing the importance of respecting his own skin color felt so similar to mine There are many such instances in this book where I thought wow this is exactly what happened to me too and that s one of the main reasons I really enjoyed this one If you are a fan of the show Queer Eye, you should definitely check this out because you ll love it It definitely goes along with the theme of the show finding your own path in life, accepting and understanding yourself and spreading joy around you Tan s witty writing style makes for a very fun read and you ll definitely find something in this memoir that you can relate to However, the blurb does mention about him coming out to his family and revealing the truth about his marriage it is not included in this advance copy but I hope it s a part of the final book This was a lovely book to read and I definitely recommend to everyone I promise it ll make you smile

that effort also came across in these pages I did appreciate hearing many of his personal stories, such as the racism and prejudice he experienced as a Muslim boy growing up in England, and how he came to be involved in the fashion industry and Queer Eye However, there were a lot of public service announcements with Tan delivering his verdict on various fashion and dating choices, which grew tiresome after awhile But that s OK I still love Tan and love the show and not everyone can write a great book He has many other talents.Fun note for Queer Eye fans on the audiobook, Antoni makes a visit to the studio, and it was fun hearing the two of them chat The behind the scenes stories were some of my favorite parts of this book.Opening PassageStraight people love to ask, When did you know

to hear how desperately Tan wished he were white when he was younger I m glad he has come to accept his skin color, as its beautiful He grew up in a strict Muslim household, so it was so fun reading about his acts of rebellion I cannot imagine getting on a plan at the age of seventeen and flying to New York, and telling my parents I was sleeping over at a friends He is a little bit of a bad boy I really loved his honesty about the show, he was really nervous and that makes me able to connect with him on a deeper level Most actors brush off being anxious in front of the camera, but Tan relates how he felt uncomfortable He is touches on his businesses before the show He has accomplished so much, but his fame isn t without struggles or stress I really loved reading the stories about his husband Rob, I never knew much about him until reading this memoir They were in a long distance relationship for years, while running a business from two different countries Which both things are

Naturally Tan is so much 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 we know about one another, the healthier and happier the world will be I LOVE this show and all the men on it Tan is my favourite, though just imagining what he went through growing up gay, of colour and Muslim and, well, gorgeous in South Yorkshire not the easiest place to be any of the above And that hair oh, I love that head of hair It is utterly readable just the story of a gay Mormon cowboy from SLC a South Asian gay Englishman meeting and marrying was worth the price of the book alone okay the book was free for me but you can understand what I mean Anyone who is questioning or not fitting in for any reason can

Eye He comes across as very genuine, caring and takes his role with great responsibility In fact, all of the guys do, and that s why I love the show So it was nice to read about Tan s childhood and uncover a little bit about who Tan really is Early on there s depictions of some awful racism that capture the fear Tan must have felt everyday just because he wasn t white To hear that everything he says becomes the voice of either the gay community, and the South Asian community, must leave a heavy weight of responsibility on his shoulders but he manages it with pride and passion It was also great to read how he was cast on the show, and what he actually did for a living before At some points the text doesn t really flow all that well It s a bit stilted, and the story is a bit all over the place without a proper coherent structure Having said that, I did like the little injections of styling tips every now and again, I just wish they were seamlessly integrated into the text This

media here in the States even rarer, gay and Asian , I inevitably became increasingly interested in French tucking Tan Like Queer Eye, Naturally Tan is fun, accessible, and has a candid tone that lends itself to transparent, feel good, and illuminating moments Ultimately, the memoir emphasizes humorous anecdotes from Tan s perspective, such as how he met his husband and of course, thoughts on what his husband was wearing , being employed as a flight attendant, and However, as I continued my reading, I found myself less focused on Tan s misadventures and focused on Tan s writing The chapters often have the same formula of writing where Tan describes a story from his past, what he learned from it, and what we as readers can takeaway from it While all of this might sound like the perfect ingredients for a memoir, it started to feel less personal and mechanical Tan opts for the you perspective when writing, depending if he is using you to talk to himself or using you to talk to the reader Sometimes this works, but other times it leads to generalizations without much weight One example is when Tan briefly gives two cents on women in the workplace, which feels like an idle, judgmental observation than having any personal significance.Some other topics that Tan discusses has authority with personal experience, and thus authenticity, such as moments when he talks about being a person of color, being gay, and the nuance between reality TV and reality Even still, once landing his feet on a topic, like masculinity or having same sex gay friends, he still manages to find comfort in going for general resolutions that don t go much deeper than noticing the surface level issues about them that read as if they re meant to be revolutionary.Overall, while Naturally Tan retains all of the fun, flavor, and doses of strife that Queer Eye does and, I think, is a book that a lot of people will enjoy and can learn new things from a person s perspective that they may be unfamiliar with, its shortcomings come from the somewhat gossipy language in the writing that, at times, feels impersonal and withholding flag 11 likesLike see review Apr 11, 2019 Caidyn SEMI HIATUS

memoirs on how open the author is I have to say that Tan is very open about his life and is upfront about saying he does not like to talk about the Muslim religion and having people think that he represents it I know what he means though When a person of color is at the forefront of something, people tend to say see, that s how all X is It drives me up the wall You know how many times I had to tell someone that Kanye West doesn t speak for all African Americans I thought the writing was great and I laughed at a lot of lines in this book while reading So yes, dog breath was one of the worst things anyone could have said to me, but it also fucking saved me.That girl was the queen bee, but she peaked in high school Go ahead, have that moment Emma She recently reached out to me on Facebook, telling me how proud of how far I ve come I did not respond That, dear reader, it the sweetest fucking revenge I also can t dance, but I hide it well in public What I mean by this is, when I m dancing in the mirror and really, who doesn t dance for themselves in the mirror I know that Beyonce would be impressed I know she would say, Tan I didn t even realize that was you and not one of my backup dancers Alone, I m incredible But when I m dancing and I see other people, my limbs take on a life of their own and they insist on embarrassing me You should not do this publicly, they say So I stop The best thing about the Olive Garden is that when you arrive, they always ask, Are you celebrating anything today The question they should ask is, What happened to your life that you re ending up at the Olive Garden What ailment are these breadsticks and Alfredo sauce attempting to cure The book tells things in a slightly chronological order, but sometimes goes back and forth to the same period in the next chapter so that when you are reading a chapter you go wait, I think we talked about this So there is some of that going on that may confuse readers I was able to follow along so I didn t mind it I do tend to like memoirs that tell things in order I thought this was a very solid read though short I would have liked even tips and insights from Tan Once again, I promise I am throwing out

well as a result Tan is not a natural storyteller and it shows My main issues, however, were how judgemental everything came across Tan constantly criticises things in fashion etc that he hates and says should never be worn again At one point he says he hates it when women have really long hair and it s a pet peeve of his, sometimes it s shoes, other times it s leggings I get that he is the style guy on QE and people look to him for this content but sometimes it felt unnecessarily harsh Other times it just felt a bit redundant Coming for Crocs when everyone in the world knows they re ugly Even Crocs know that Crocs are ugly Who cares Isn t the whole point of QE to get people to be the best version of themselves To love themselves, no matter the flaws This intention isn t really synonymous with one of its stars penning a book dragging every single thing he hates in fashion because it s not to his personal taste I bought his memoir to read about his life and learn about him because I like him, not to be told my long hair made me look like I d just escaped from a cult.There are some highlights in the book though, especially the bits about meeting his husband and his experiences growing up in one of the few non white families in northern England, though these moments seemed to come along sparingly Tan has had a really interesting life, it s just a shame so much of

book you get a lot of drawings for each chapter which are amazing In Naturally Tan, Tan talks about many things he s gone through in his life from racism to stardom One thing I especially like is that Tan is someone who, when a situation asks for it, doesn t shy away from telling it like it is we get many instances where Tan speaks up described in the book e.g Tan had to deal with an awful boss Besides Tan s life story we get some fashion advice from him as well as do s and don ts Tan doesn t shy away from talking about real issues e.g racism where he since he was a child went through a lot of mental analysis on what to do, how to act when faced with racism Whilst on the subject of race issues Tan tells the reader that in his life he s had twenty four incidents where he had to stay longer at the airport to answer a few questions such as when s the last time you ve visited Pakistan when s the last time you held a gun I m paraphrasing these questions I m glad that in his memoir Tan deals with those tough questions because they are issues still This book made me feel so happy while reading because of many lovely stories Tan shared about his life We also get info on how the whole casting process of Queer Eye went and how Tan met Antoni, Bobby, Karamo and Jonathan I also wanted of Tan from his stories because I felt like some were very short and ended abruptly I would ve

emotional listen So when I heard Tan was writing a memoir I was excited to get my hands on it to find out about his life and background.On balance I think that I m not quite a big enough of a fan to read an entire book on his life, or at least not in the way this memoir was presented Don t get me wrong, this isn t a bad memoir at all, and I think most fans of the show will find it an enjoyable read readers get to learn about how he got cast in the show, some background of how the shooting of the show works and how Tan dealt with the aftermath of the release of the show, all of which made for interesting reading Tan s voice also comes through well, and I can imagine this being a great audiobook.The parts of the book which didn t work for me were the style tips I guess these were kind of to be expected given Tan s role in the show but they jarred for me as they felt randomly and almost arbitrarily inserted into the narrative The book also felt repetitive at times and I d find myself thinking I m sure you mentioned that a few chapters ago , an issue which the almost formulaic structure of each chapter exacerbated All in all this was an easy and reasonably engaging read, and had fun insights for fans of the show, it just had a few issues which I found hard to overlook Thank you Netgalley and Penguin Random House UK Ebury Publishing for the advance copy, which was provided

reinforce stereotypes of gay men as cultured, effeminate, and vain But I gave it a shot because I trust Zach The warm, nonjudgmental humanity of the way the first client was presented had me crying less than five minutes in The show was not at all what I was afraid it would be and watching it was the best choice ever What I love about the new Queer Eye is the way that the guys respect their client s personality and style, but enhance everything that s already there with loving care of presentation to make their subjects themselves Before I watched this show, I had always felt that spending time and money on hair makeup clothing skin care is vain, so I never did I then wondered why I always felt bad about myself looking in the mirror, why I always felt like I had to make myself love myself in spite of my outward appearance This show has changed my entire outlook on what grooming is it s not conforming to how others need you to be in order to love you or to see your beauty It s showing you love yourself enough to take care of your body and your presentation too My confidence and personal presentation, which now includes the aforementioned hair makeup skin care has grown IMMEASURABLY because of this show and I m so grateful to the new Fab Five for that If you have not seen Queer Eye, do it You won t regret it Tan France is the fashion guru for the show He presents himself on camera with this full elegance that makes me feel when I m watching him that he might be one of most confident people on earth and rightly so, with that glorious hair I love all of the Fab Five dearly, but he and Karamo are the ones I think about when I am trying to emulate confidence I was very interested to read his book and see if it would shed any light on who the real Tan France is off camera.The first thing that struck me right away is probably also the biggest criticism I have of the book in the first few chapters about his life growing up, there is a lot of swearing going on I never ever thought that would be a criticism I d have of this book, nor of a published book in general, but in this context is is noticeable and sort of detracts from the quality of what he s saying Luckily, this is an issue that irons itself out in further chapters When used sparingly, the habit becomes totally charming Even though the frequent swearing can come off as a bit juvenile, on the other hand it was nice to see that Tan France the private person is really not that much different from me puttering around my apartment, tossing out cusses for kicks.The second thing that struck me is that Tan s elegant sense of self really comes from his directness and his love of boundaries He mentions a few moments of conflict he has had in his life usually in work situations in this book, and I was taken a bit aback at how directly even shamelessly he advocated for himself Like his husband Rob, this quality is a bit foreign to me But of all things about Tan it s probably the one we should all most strive to emulate Be direct Take no shit Call dramatic behavior out.You should read this book if you want to know about Tan s journey to the show or what his life has been like after fame, for sure The best sections of this book, however, are the ones that provide insight into his marriage to his husband, Rob, because their partnership is respectful, loving, and happy Tan talks on the show a bit about never taking your partner for granted mostly in the sense of not going unshowered and wearing sweats around the house every day and that idea is expanded upon here beyond just how you handle your outer presentation That alone is worth the read.Other things of note you ll find in this book what it s like to represent an underrepresented community in the media, how Tan built his fashion business and reputation prior to the show, and some hilarious sass about Olive Garden.The organization of the book around items of clothing is unique fun, and there are cool illustrations to start each chapter I inadvertently found out from Googling Tan and Rob that those illustrations were done BY Rob, which is extra cute I am so glad I was lucky enough to win this book in a giveaway
