There, Van Ness discussed his past drug addictions and shared that he is HIV-Positive. During an interview with NPR, Jonathan Van Ness discussed why he shared intimate details of his past in his book.

“Having Queer Eye become a success and giving me the platform it’s given me, the desire for me to want to share about my experiences in those realms became stronger over time,” Van Ness said. “There are so many young people that are struggling with what I struggled with… But I think the point of the book is that no matter how far off course you have gotten, no matter how… you feel, there is a way to get to a life that is fulfilling and sustainable and that you feel good about.”

The ‘Queer Eye’ expert also did a national tour, promoting his book and showcasing his love for gymnastics
