What We Know About Jonathan Van Ness' New Book

On April 12, 2022, Jonathan Van Ness' new book, "Love That Story: Observations from a Gorgeously Queer Life," will release, and excitement is already brewing. 

Van Ness, of course, rose to fame through Netflix's "Queer Eye," as they are the hair guru on the reboot that started up on the streaming service in 2018. Previously, they were part of the web series "Gay of Thrones" and have appeared on television shows such as "I Love the 2000s" and "E! Live from the Red Carpet" (via Celebrity Net Worth). Van Ness also has a podcast, "Getting Curious with Jonathan Van Ness," so it's safe to say that the star is a media mogul in their own right. 

In 2019, Van Ness published their book entitled "Over the Top: A Raw Journey to Self-Love," which landed them on The New York Times bestsellers list. In addition, Van Ness put out a picture book titled "Peanut Goes for the Gold." Now, fans can look forward to a collection of essays from Van Ness, coming out next year.

Jonathan Van Ness revealed that nothing is 'off-limits' in the new book

When talking with People, Jonathan Van Ness said their new book, entitled "Love That Story," "represents the growth I've experienced as an author, an entertainer, and a person."

"There are so many dimensions to all of our humanity that I've observed through my life that I explore in this book, and I invite everyone to come along for the ride. From my experiences as a hairdresser-turned-entertainer to the HIV social safety net, imposter syndrome, and dealing with TERFs, there's nothing off-limits," ‎they said. 

The "Queer Eye" star continued, saying that "when you've stared down addiction, abuse, and trauma, you get bored with small talk" and that they "want to keep learning, keep writing, and keep sharing." In addition to writing and releasing this book, Van Ness also started a haircare line, JVN Hair, on August 31 of this year, as seen on Instagram
