This Netflix reboot of "Queer Eye" features Jonathan Van Ness, Tan France, Antoni Porowski, Karamo Brown, and Bobby Berk. For those who do not know the premise of the show, basically, a friend will nominate someone to become a better version of themselves with the help of the gay Fab 5. Jonathan handles grooming and new haircuts, Tan helps with fashion, Antoni teaches people how to make simple, delicious meals, Karamo is in charge of culture, and Bobby redoes the homes of the people in the show. What makes the show great is that the Fab 5 do not try to change a person, they help them gain confidence and to feel more secure in who they are. That and the following 5 reasons is why everyone needs to integrate "Queer Eye" into their life!
1. The show is a combination of house, fashion, and hair makeover.
The excitement every person feels at watching people become more beautiful.Giphy
There always comes a strange satisfaction from watching the shows on the Home Network channel, where they take these dumps and transform them into beautiful designer homes. With "Queer Eye" that satisfaction is only increased. You are not subjected to watching all of the strenuous dirty work that comes with transforming a home, and you get the addition of a whole-body makeover. Watching all of these people feel more confident in themselves with their body and home makeovers gives you the hope that you too can gain more self-confidence.
2. It is HILARIOUS (especially Jonathan).

Not an episode of "Queer Eye" will go by without you laughing at something Jonathan says. Jonathan is by the far the most flamboyant of the Fab 5. With his exclamations of "Yas queen!" and "Fiercedom Honey!" it is hard not to be delighted by how outrageous he is. His flamboyance does not make the straight, white men on the show uncomfortable either. He infuses the situation with light and humor that makes them more comfortable being around 5 gay men that they may feel a little strange around.
3. The show betters the people not only in appearance but as a whole.
The inevitable tears of "Queer Eye."Giphy
I do not think that there is an episode of "Queer Eye" where the person being made over does not cry. The Fab 5 instills in them a newfound confidence that makes them feel like a better version of themselves. The one mainly responsible for the more internal transformation is Karamo. He has deep, important conversations with the people and works out what he can do to make feel more at peace with who they are and who they want to be. This show is wonderful in teaching that how you feel about yourself on both the inside and outside is integral in improving yourself.
4. All of the Fab 5 are gorgeous and have AMAZING outfits.
What a hottie.Giphy
This is one of the more superficial reasons for watching "Queer Eye," but it is still important. Seeing a wide range of attractive and confident gay men is both satisfying, and it helps for others to gain awareness that being gay does not mean you have to act or be a certain way. Someone who is gay can be feminine or masculine, or any other way they want to be.
5. It shows acceptance and love of everyone.
Unlike the original "Queer Eye," the reboot makes over all kinds of people, gay, straight, man, woman, Indian, Christian, and many more. They helped a gay man come out to his stepmother and had serious conversations about religion relating to homosexuality and relations between blacks and the police force. The people one would expect to be against homosexuality show the Fab 5 acceptance and love that the world needs.
This sweet show brings tears to my eyes almost everytime I watch it. The love and acceptance shown between such a wide variety of people give me hope that perhaps our world will eventually become kinder to everyone in it. Perhaps watching shows like "Queer Eye" can help every person to instill a little bit of kindness into their everyday actions.
