Tom Fitzgerald and Lorenzo Marquez were your typically paired-off gay couple of ten-plus years: no kids, lots of antiques, single-digit body fat, and one cat too many, when they decided to throw a couple curveballs at life. They launched a blog called “Project Rungay,” which punctured the self-importance and silliness of the fashion and celebrity worlds. The pair’s gentle snark and wit quickly amassed a cult following, and the blog became TomandLorenzo.com, which now receives 10 million page views a month and 6-7 million monthly visitors.
TLo, as the pair are affectionately known, have been featured in People, Marie Claire, Rolling Stone, Entertainment Weekly, The New York Times, The Chicago Tribune, and elsewhere, but they haven’t lost the hilarious voices that make them so beloved.
EVERYONE WANTS TO BE ME OR DO ME is the proof: with insight, humor, and takedowns of the myths of celebrity cultures, it offers TLo's very best advice on how to dress, act, and think like a celeb. Let them teach you celebrity affirmations! How to get famous in three easy positions! How to obliterate your weaknesses! How to muster an army of rabid online defenders out of a socially awkward fanbase! How to have a public meltdown -- and so, so much more.
Tom & Lorenzo have 248,000 (and counting) Twitter followers. They are currently shooting a piece for a Sundance channel show about fashion and continue to make semi-regular appearances on Sirius Radio. Tom Fitzgerald and Lorenzo Marquez were married in July. They live in Philadelphia. But they'll be at The Booksmith tonight.
