Who gave Jonathan Van Ness permission to be the radiant human he is today? No one, honey.
The truth is, it hasnt always been gorgeous for this beacon of positivity and joy.
Before he stole our hearts as the grooming and self-care expert on Netflixs hit show Queer Eye, Jonathan was growing up in a small Midwestern town that didnt understand why he was so
over the top. From choreographed carpet figure skating routines to the unavoidable fact that he was Just. So. Gay., Jonathan was an easy target and endured years of judgement, ridicule and traumayet none of it crushed his uniquely effervescent spirit.
Over the Top uncovers the pain and passion it took to end up becoming the model of self-love and acceptance that Jonathan is today. In this revelatory, raw, and rambunctious memoir, Jonathan shares never-before-told secrets and reveals sides of himself that the public has never seen. JVN fans may think they know the man behind the stiletto heels, the crop tops, and the iconic sayings, but theres much more to him than meets the Queer Eye.
Youll laugh, youll cry, and youll come away knowing that no matter how broken or lost you may be, youre a Kelly Clarkson song, youre strong, and youve got this.
