5 Fabulous Reasons We Need 'Queer Eye' Season 2

"Can you believe?" - Johnathan Van Ness

5 Fabulous Reasons We Need 'Queer Eye' Season 2
USA Today

So full disclaimer, I never watched the original Queer Eye show, but I can tell you with full confidence that it did the original justice. This show is so expansive and open-minded and just plain groundbreaking. Every episode leaves you smiling and hoping another one was just around the corner, but to my dismay, the season had to end. So the following is my petition for why Queer Eye needs a second season with more episodes.

1. Their impact.

By what I've read, the original Queer Eye was quite controversial when it came out (and that was only about 10 years ago), but one could argue being in the LGBTQIA+ community is more widely accepted now. However, there is still a stigma, and the Fab 5 do NOT shy away from combating that stigma onscreen.

2. They have the tough conversations.

One of my favorite episodes of Queer Eye was when Karamo and Cory (a police officer) had a candid conversation about police brutality and how it affects both the black community and the image of cops. They didn't shy away from the conversation just because it's a delicate topic. I'd love to see more barriers broken in season two.

3. Uniquely you.

Even though this is primarily a makeover show, the Fab 5 take the lifestyles of their nominee into consideration. Like with Tom, he wasn't all about Tan's sense of style, but they found one that suited his personality and still looked phenomenal. Johnathan also keeps the grooming routines really simple so they get eased into self-care.

4. The decor and food.

Bobby is a decor genius and I wish I had his designing acumen. He is rivaled only by Chip and Joanna Gaines. Then there's adorable Antoni who comes up with some really creative and cost-effective foods for the guys. That grilled cheese he taught Neal was unreal!

5. Just... Johnathan.

Johnathan is just so expressive and I love him so much. He is 90% of the reason this show makes me so happy and have gut busting giggles.

To Mom

There are days when you just need your mom

To Mom

There really is no way to prepare yourself for the loss of someone. Imagine that someone being the one who carried you for 9th months in their belly, taught you how to walk, fought with you about little things that only a mother and daughter relationship could understand. You can have a countless number of father figures in your life, but really as my mom always said, " you only get one mom."

You hear your phone go off. He's asking you to hang out. Then, of course, you get the advice of your friends to decipher this text. Is it just hanging out or is it more than hanging out? You've probably done this at least once in your life or at least seen a tweet where someone posted their screenshots with a potential love interest.

Winter Break As Told By 'Friends'

Is a month at home too much to handle?

12959

If you're anything like me, winter break is a much-needed light at the end of the tunnel after a long, stressful semester. Working hard for 15 weeks can really take a toll on a person mentally, physically AND emotionally. It's a nice change of pace to be back at home with your family and friends, but after a couple weeks, it can get, well... boring.
