Netflix’s Queer Eye reboot, which comes more than a decade after the original series went off the air, has quickly become a show synonymous with self care and empowerment.
Every episode of this “makeover” series finds the Fab Five, aka food specialist Antoni Porowski, interior designer Bobby Berk, grooming consultant Jonathan Van Ness, fashion designer Tan France, and culture expert Karamo Brown, serving up hip tips, emotionally-charged makeovers, and heartfelt reveals.
The most cathartic thing I’ve done in my life lately is watch #QueerEye with a glass of wine. Like, as a society we don’t deserve these 5 guys and their compassion 😭💜 pic.twitter.com/gZVEqFcAQ1

So if I cry while watching previous episodes of Queer Eye every single time, how am I expected to watch the new season being released on Friday? 😭 #queereye

#QueerEye is so important. It is beautiful, moving and full of love and positivity. It is so refreshing to see people of various backgrounds/races/religions connecting and helping each other. I'm in love with this show. Please watch it and encourage other people to watch it!

Favorite Fab Five Moments & Quotes
One of the best takeaways from Queer Eye has to be the Fab Five-isms, the hilarious terms and phrases coined by Antoni, Karamo, Bobby, Tan, and fan fave, Jonathan Van Ness (JVN).
Several Instagram and Twitter memes incorporate fans’ favorite quotes from the show, many of which come courtesy of JVN.

Guys. GUYS. First off, here is Tan being sassy AF, secondly: As of tonight’s stream I’ve surpassed my July goal of achieving 25 #followers on #Twitch and I’m also sitting pretty with 56 followers on IG! Perhaps this doesn’t strike you as a big deal, but to me it is. This is a casual thing and to know at least a few people like watching me dick around and be my weird self means a lot. If you don’t already follow me, check out one of my streams, I announce them here and on #twitter (same name). So, carry on! Love to all and goodnight! ✌🏼🖤🏴☠️ • #roadtoaffiliate #kinda #meme #memes #queereyememes #streamer #streamergoals #smallstreamer
Finally, as with most fandoms, there’s quite a collection of original artwork created by Queer Eye fans.
