Fifteen years after the original show debuted, Queer Eye is back with a new “Fab Five” and fundamental goal.
"The original show was fighting for tolerance,” a clip from the first episode reveals. “Our fight is for acceptance."
Once again, the show follows a team of five experts - Tan France, Antoni Porowski, Jonathan Van Ness, Karamo Brown, and Bobby Berk. They advise other men on grooming, fashion, diet, interior design and self-confidence.
But rather than focusing on cases in New York, like the original show, the hosts spend the entire season in Georgia. Many of the storylines are socially conscious in a direct way.
"We respect these people that we work with, we respect their families, we respect their experience. And in turn, we ask them to respect us because we are regular guys,” Brown said. “We're married, we're fathers, we travel around the world, we're international. And I think that's the beauty of it. We see each other eye to eye, and I think if more people could understand that, just to listen and respect your fellow man, things would be better.”
