Charis Books and More, Charis Circle, and the Friends School of Atlanta Present Queer Eye star and author, Tan France in celebration of his new memoir, Naturally Tan.
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."
Tan will read from his memoir and sign books.
Doors open at 6pm. Event begins at 7pm. The Friends School of Atlanta is wheelchair accessible. Free parking is available on site and throughout the neighborhood. ASL interpretation is available for free upon request. Please email email@example.com to request interpretation and for any other accessibility questions.
