Publisher's Summary

Jump into Pride with Tan France (Queer Eye), Nikki Levy, and seven fabulous storytellers as they share true tales of exploring, embracing, and celebrating queer identity. 

You Do You, produced especially for Pride Month, brings Audible Members a collection of uplifting, raw, and hilarious stories from queer actors, comedians, and personalities. Co-hosted by French-tuck aficionado and super-stylist Tan France and storytelling maven Nikki Levy, You Do You is a fierce, unfiltered celebration of LGBTQIA+ realness. 

You’ll hear live stories from RuPaul’s Drag Race fave D.J. “Shangela” Pierce about seeking some Beyoncé healing after a fateful death-drop injury, Janine Brito (stand-up comedian and writer for Netflix’s One Day at a Time) who made a curious calendar purchase as a tween, and Emma Willmann (Crazy Ex-Girlfriend) growing closer to her sister through heteronormative wedding planning. 

You Do You also treats listeners to a sometimes-fun, sometimes-trying excursion to Dubai from YouTube star Gigi Gorgeous, a mischievous switcheroo orchestrated by Percy Rustomji, and a touching story about big life decisions from Nikki Levy herself. Closing it out is a deeply personal story that’s still sizzling with laughs from the magnificent Alexandra Billings of Amazon’s hit show Transparent

So, celebrate yourself, don’t let anyone dull your sparkle, and dive in to the fabulous, funny stories in You Do You

  • Janine Brito
  • D.J. “Shangela” Pierce
  • Emma Willmann

About the Host

Tan France has been a successful fashion designer for more than 15 years, and is best known to audiences worldwide as the fashion expert on the Emmy-winning Netflix reboot, Queer Eye. Amplifying the impact of the original Queer Eye for the Straight Guy series, the groundbreaking reboot unapologetically takes the world by storm and proves that the Queer Eye lens can be introspective, emotional, and most of all—necessary. Prior to Tan’s newfound success in front of the camera, he was the creative mind behind successful brands, including the popular ladies’ clothing lines Kingdom & State and Rachel Parcell, Inc. In 2019, Tan made his mark in the spoken-word format, narrating his memoir, Naturally Tan, and anchoring the Audible Original You Do You. Both audios bring to life experiences that contributed to his success and celebrate his identity…and the unique stories of others. He currently resides in Salt Lake City with his husband, Rob.

Uplifting yet hilarious

I decided to listen to this because I love QE and Tan France. I am a straight 30 year old female and didn't expect anything but some entertainment.

What was amazing about this production was that I surprisingly related to so much of it, and anyone would be able to relate. It was funny, entertaining, yet bold and reflective. I truly enjoyed it!
