Hello and happy Thursday. Let’s keep this post short and sweet because I have many things to do today and I’m sure you do too. Let’s get started, shall we?
I recently came across Queer Eye and after debating whether I should watch it, I decided I’d give it a try. You see, I had the idea that it would be like the original show, where five gay men went to straight man’s house to put him together for a date. You can see my eye roll from where you are.
You see, since Queer Eye for the Straight Guy ended, I’ve been blessed with higher education and I have been introduced to the horrors of heterosexism, so I was hesitant about watching such a blatant display of, well, heterosexism. You see, there is nothing inclusive or progressive in having five people helping a straight man get a date if the whole idea of the show is based on stereotypes.
Queer Eye, the new version, has five gay men, who all excel in at least one area, but who do not help straight men get dates. Oh no. They rebuild churches and reunite fathers with their sons. They make other queer individuals feel loved and respected. They help out siblings with their family business and all in all they show us that the world is still a good place and there are awesome people living in it.
If you feel like you need to let your emotions flow, or that you need to cry but you just can’t, watch an episode of Queer Eye, and I assure you, the tears will flow. Which of the Fab Five is your favorite and why? Let me know in the comments below.
Love, Miss Camila
