Harvey’s Book ‘Blush’ Launches into The World!
‘Blush: The Unbelievably Absurd Diary Of A Gay Beauty Junkie’ has reviews and lots of readers.
Hello, Gorgeous! Finally, after four years of blood, sweat, tears, boxes of Wheat Thins, and gobs of waterproof mascara, I’m excited to tell you that my book Blush: The Unbelievably Absurd Diary Of A Gay Beauty Junkie is NOW available! I couldn’t have done it without your love and support! You’re just beyond amazing!
The Huffington Post gave me a rave! Me, lil’ ole Harvey Helms a rave! Here’s an excerpt of the review, “This incredibly funny, tongue-in-cheek memoir tells the true story of Harvey’s life — taking you on the emotional rollercoaster of growing up a gay man in the south. One minute I found myself laughing out loud, the next minute I was holding back tears, thinking about the struggles facing a young boy in such a hostile, intolerant environment.”
You see Blush was taken from the pages of my diary. It tells the story of how I accidentally end up as one of the very first MALE beauty advisors selling behind a department store cosmetic counter in the south. Throw in She-Dragons, Man Drama, Lipstick, Tammy Faye Baker, Senator Jesse Helms, plus more than a large dose of gay man craziness and mix! You’ll have one of the most twisted Mint Julep’s you’ve ever tasted! Want a delicious taste of me dishing the book? Watch this!!
Through a humorous lens, Blush examines almost deadly gay bullying, and the not so pretty side of the cosmetic industry. Men behind cosmetic counters are seen as the norm today. When I started it was more like I was part of a freak show that is vividly conveyed in the first chapter “I’m the Revlon Girl”. I also give you an in-depth look at growing up gay in an intolerant world and being authentically myself against all odds. There was definitely no closet for me to hide in!

Hope you’re Blushing!
