Netflix's hit reboot series, Queer Eye, has caught the attention of the world, and now everyone wants to know more about the Fab 5. Consisting of Bobby, Karamo, Antoni, Tan and Jonathan, the men in Queer Eye make the rounds in Atlanta with the intentions of improving the lives of those lacking confidence in the romance department.
Tan France, one of the stars who make up the Fab 5, is the Fashion Expert on Queer Eye. He has been married to his husband, Rob France, for ten years.
They Met on a Dating Site
Rob and Tan met on a dating site.
Tan was born in England to Pakistani immigrants and is Muslim. His husband, meanwhile, is Mormon and was born in Wyoming.
Speaking to the New York Post recently, Rob revealed that their religions have, interestingly, brought them together. "It made it easier to date somebody who had similarities to me. I don’t drink alcohol, I don’t smoke... We practice some of our religions’ practices... We practice what works for us," he told the outlet.
Rob Is an Illustrator
In an interview with City Weekly in 2015 about his artwork, Rob said, "... I'm currently a full-time pediatric nurse, which I absolutely love, and I do artwork on the side. I'm passionate about women's fashion, oddly, and horror/sci-fi films. I married a European, which is the best thing that ever happened to me, and though the world still intimidates the small-town kid in me, I try to get out and travel often."
Rob admits that initially, he didn't quite have the knack for drawing from life. "I'd do portraits of people... but just couldn't get it. All of my drawings were just awful." He says it was in his mid-20s that he started to embrace the "weirdness," and that is how he found his style.
Together, Tan and Rob split their time between Salt Lake City, New York and LA.
