The Flamingo, the biggest openly gay event in the world, decides to move from its usual destination of Las Vegas to the lesser-known city of Moline, Illinois. The event features gay musical acts, clinics, and novelties, and is coming to Moline for the first time due to tax breaks and the fact that the mayor is the uncle of the one and only fabulous host, Spencer Gayman.
Randy Straight, a boring hetero, is continually mistaken for Gayman. This mistake begins to snowball, with the media believing that Gayman has hit the town well before the scheduled event to perhaps scout out restaurants, tour, shop, or all of the above. Straight then sees his life go from "straight and boring" to "gay and fab-you-luss" overnight. He begins to receive VIP treatment in the form of restaurant, hotel, and clothing comps. Not to mention the occasional hetero woman willing to turn Gayman straight.
Straight's super hetero friends, Peter Christman and Jack Dudemeister, begin to enjoy the perks of being in a celebrity entourage. They encourage Straight to play the part - 100 percent. That is until Gayman comes to town for real after hearing that his good, gay name has been tarnished by being seen in places like K-Mart. "Oh no he dih'nt!"
Hello Fabulous! is a hilarious story about mistaken identity that results in a climax that determines the real fabulous one. Oh, and there's a giant flamingo, too!

A funny tale about mistaken identity.
This is one of those funny "what if" situations involving a hot topic in today's society - homosexuality. It's not meant to be offensive but there are subtle stabs at those who oppose it. After all, Hello Fabulous! is about a homosexual event.
It is all done in a humorous way; if you're looking for a few laughs and an easy read, this is definitely the book for you. Tanamor does a great job closing all the little story lines like the giant flamingo and the reporter with the really long Hispanic name.
The narrator, Nicholas Santasier, also does a good job telling the story how it should be told - goofy and with humorous voices.
