“Queer Eye” season three is the most heartwarming and touching season yet. Queer Eye is a reboot of the popular 90s reality tv show, “Queer Eye for the Straight Guy”. The basic concept is that a group of gay men come into straight mens’ lives and give them makeovers, but the reboot takes this concept and expands on it. The reboot features Tan France as the style expert, Karamo Brown as the life and culture expert, Bobby Berk as the home decor expert, Antoni Porowski as the food expert and Jonathan Van Ness as the hair specialist.

“The original show was fighting for tolerance, our fight is for acceptance,” France explains in the first episode.

Season three was the first season produced after the insane success of the show, so many fans were concerned that the fame would go to the casts’ heads and they would end up being parodies of themselves, relying on enthusiastic “Yas queen!”s and cheesy gimmicks to pull in viewers instead of being their authentic selves. However, the “Queer Eye” team continued to keep fans watching and still stay true to themselves.

The reboot has strayed from the norm of making over straight men from the original in past seasons, previously making over a gay man and a woman, but season three takes this even further. In this season, the team makes over multiple women, one of whom is a lesbian. Some may see this as straying too much from the original, but the inclusion of different people makes the show still stay fresh and interesting after multiple seasons.

The aspect that makes “Queer Eye” different from any other similar reality show is that it can help anyone, not just the people being made over in the show. While shows like “House Hunter” and “100% Hotter” only benefit the people on the show, Queer Eye teaches lessons that can be applied to anyone’s life. Sometimes it is a small lesson, like Jonathan Van Ness constantly telling people how important it is to moisturize, but it can also be something more impactful, like when the Queer Eye team taught one of their contestants that it is okay to take care of yourself and that it is not selfish or vain.

The show also has some political aspects, although it is subtle and it is never the main focus of the episode. There is one episode where Tan France and one of the contestants have a conversation about gun control in America and there is another where Karamo Brown talks about police brutality and how scary it is for him as a black man whenever he’s pulled over, even if it is for something small, like a broken headlight.

All the Queer Eye seasons are currently available to stream on Netflix. It is not only a heartwarming, feel-good show it is also making a difference in the way people view the LGBTQ community. The show is quite mainstream, which means people who may have previously had prejudices against the LGBTQ community, can hear the struggles and triumphs that these gay men have gone through and be able to empathize with them.
