Queer Eye Cast on Finding the “Healing Middle Ground” Through Makeovers and Exposure

As the Tan declared in the show’s opening, “The original show was fighting for tolerance. Our fight is for acceptance.” By having a more culturally diverse group as the Queer Eye cast, Tan said the show is teaching its participants just threw exposure. “It’s so much more that we’re offering these guys and hopefully to the audience.”

Tan said as a viewer of the original show, he always assumed there was behind-the-scenes tension between the Fab Five and the participants. “However, there really wasn’t. These guys were so receptive to us because we were so loving,” he said. “It really helps that we were so engaging with them there was no need for them to be confrontation with us.”
