In this hilarious discourse on and guide to the well-lived life, Doonan goes far beyond the secrets to eating like the French — he proves that gay men really are French women, from their delight in fashion, to their brilliant choices in accessories and décor, to their awe-inspiring ability to limit calorie intake. A Gucci-wearing Margaret Mead at heart, Doonan offers his own inimitable life experiences and uncanny insights into what makes gay people driven to live every day feeling their best, and proves that they have just as much –and possibly better– wisdom, advice, and inspiration beyond the same old diet and exercise tips.

So put down that bag of Pirate’s Booty and pick up this fierce and fabulous book. From slimming jaunts through Capri in the evening to an intrepid “Bear” hunt, Gay Men Don’t Get Fat is the ultimate approach to a glamorous lifestyle — plus, you are guaranteed to laugh away the pounds!
