Tan France, of Netflix's Queer Eye reboot, talks about traveling abroad as a gay married man. "As a gay man, there are certain places that I avoid. When I go to China, I lie and pretend I'm not married, which is really sad - I leave my ring at home," he said.
He said that he is not willing to risk his safety and is aware of where he can be open and where he cannot.
Tan, who is of Pakistani and British descent, said that he would not go to Pakistan after the show's release. "I don't know if it's illegal to be gay or they just turn a blind eye, but I wouldn't risk it. The exposure the show has and the fact that I'm very open about who I am makes it a security risk. But I do love Pakistan, and I went many, many times before the show."
