Tan France reveals special woman he met 2 years ago, saying “I wanted her in my life”
We all know that Tan France belongs to the LGBTQ community. So to think that he would want a woman in his life, sounds odd. Turns out, he met a complete stranger at Emmy’s and fell in love. However, it is not the kind of love you think.
With Queer Eye, Tan France became the first queer Muslim to appear on TV
Born and bred in a British Muslim family, Tan France would have only dreamed to become a representative of a suppressed community. However, Queer Eye presented the perfect opportunity for him. When Queer Eye started auditioning for the show, France was an anonymous wholesale clothing businessman. With the Netflix show, the style guru got to showcase his talent for the world to see. While talking about it, Tan France said:
I wasn’t qualified. I’d never been on TV before. It made no sense to give this complete novice this high-profile show.
Before the show, Tan France had no gay friends and was very private about his life. However, he got life-long friends after the show. At the same time, he got a chance to represent his community.
The show has given me more than I’ll ever know, and not just financially or in terms of fame. It put me in a position to represent my community in a way that I had never seen. And, I’m not just talking about the gay community, I’m talking about the Asian community.
Recently Tan France shared an interesting post on Instagram
In a selfie shared on Instagram, Tan France is seen sitting with two women. Along with the picture, he shared the story of how he met a special woman at Emmy’s two years ago. In a caption, Tan France wrote:
2 years ago, at the Emmy’s, I was seated next to my cast mates, and a complete stranger. That stranger and I ended up chatting the entire show, and by the end of the evening, it was clear we’d be friends. I had no idea what she did for a living, but I knew I wanted her in my life.
Furthermore, Tan France announced that the stranger turned friend is indeed his new publicist.
Today, she is officially my new Publicist.
Meet @yvettenoelschure . She’s the most special, with the biggest heart and greatest talent. I love you, my dear. Let’s gooooooo!
Who is Yvette Noel-Schure?
You must be thinking who is this woman, who just got lucky with getting a client like Tan France. Turns out, Yvette Noel-Schure is a true boss lady and founder of Schure Media Group. Apart from Tan France, her client list includes the elites of Hollywood. At the moment, she represents Beyoncé and Prince. While talking about how she got to be Prince’s publicist, she said:
I think it was in 2004; I started working with Prince and then Prince’s team called me in 2014 to come back. When I went to meet Prince for that first conversation, he said to me, ‘I remember you from somewhere.’ And I said, ‘No, you don’t.’ He said, ‘Yes, yes, yes. Your smile. I remember your smile! You were at the rehearsal with me and Beyoncé for the Grammys.’ I said, ‘Yeah, but I was hiding in the corner.’ He said, ‘Yeah, and you were smiling the whole time.’
With her as Tan France’s publicist, new avenues and greater opportunities will be knocking on his door. Let’s see how this changes his career.
