One of the biggest success stories in the world of entertainment for 2018 is the relaunch of the “Queer Eye.” The iconic reality show features five gay men giving life and style advice to individuals who might have forgotten to pamper themselves. Instead of focusing only on straight male contestants like the 2000s iteration, Netflix’s “Queer Eye” has had gay men, transgender men and women among its participants.
The shows stars Antoni Porowski (food and wine expert), Tan France (fashion expert), Karamo Brown (culture expert), Bobby Berk (design expert) and Jonathan Van Ness (grooming expert) quickly became social media celebrities and pop culture icons. Their candor and genuine care for the participants translated into a worldwide audience. The casting crew have also been more inclusive than the original show. A black man and a Pakistani are the two people in color in the team, but participants have included all sorts of ethnicities, including a cute Mexican dadbod dude.
