    Tan France, the fashion expert from the Emmy-winning Netflix show “Queer Eye,” will be in Boston to promote his new memoir, “Naturally Tan,” at the beginning of June.

    In his book, France writes about growing up gay in a traditional South Asian family and tells the story of how a Mormon cowboy from Salt Lake City became his husband.

    “The book is meant to spread joy, personal acceptance, and most of all understanding,” France said in a release. “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.”

    Who knows? Maybe France can stick around for a little while and lend his skills to folks who need their fashion elevated.
