“I was worried about the people that I know and love being attacked by people within our community,” Tan France said. “I wasn’t concerned about what Caucasian people might think of it, necessarily. It was what my own people would think of it, that they would be concerned that my family have a gay man who’s very openly gay, very unabashedly gay, so publicly.”

“On the anniversary of 9/11, I see the words ‘Never Forget,’” reads an excerpt from Tan France’s book. “I understand that sentiment. I completely agree with honoring those who lost their lives. But there is another side to this, too. It means we never forget to see my people as a potential threat.”
