Straight from Your Gay Best Friend The Straight-Up Truth About Relationships, Work, and Having a Fabulous Life by Terrance Dean

Straight from Your Gay Best Friend The Straight-Up Truth About Relationships, Work, and Having a Fabulous Life


Straight from Your Gay Best Friend The Straight-Up Truth About Relationships, Work, and Having a Fabulous Life by Terrance Dean

In today's society, every woman needs a gay best friend--someone who gives it to her straight about life, clothes, sex, and relationships. For example, on the hit TV show, The Real Housewives of Atlanta, the breakout star, NeNe, has introduced the world to her gay best friend, Dwight Eubanks. On Sex In The City, Carrie Bradshaw often turned to her gay best friend, Stanford, and Will and Grace was all about the relationship between a woman and her gay best friend. The gay best friend--smart, sympathetic, and straight-talking--is the new must-have; no woman wants to be without one. Enter Terrance Dean, who offers direct and to-the-point insights on some of life's most challenging issues--family, friends, career, love, sex, and intimate relationships of all kinds--mixed with a little sass, wit, humor, forwardness, and spirituality, as only a gay man can do. He speaks candidly to women about healing their souls of past hurts in order to tap into their fabulousness. This book will help women discover the strength they need for a life of loving relationships and abundant success. And it's all done from a place of love, coming from their gay best friend.
