I believe these men can fasten me, and that is not something Ive thought about anyone from world Tv, ever
Summer of boast this may well be- World Cup to the left of you, Wimbledon to the right- but I’ll be honest, I hadn’t really noticed. And I’ll be even more honest, the day England played Panama and 99.9% or whatever of the British public was watching the game, I was the 0.1% “whos not”- the defiant resister, the rebel without much of a cause. And it’s not because I was busy carpe-ing the freak out of the diem, bouncing through wall street like a woman advertising panty liners in the 1990 s. No, I was up in my bedroom watching the brand-new succession of Queer Eye.
Articles about the joyousness of Netflix’s reboot, in which five homosexual mortals with different specialisms cause a life and style makeover to someone in dreadful involve, are so countless they have become a journalistic category unto themselves. When the first succession came out earlier this year, I myself constituted majestic contends about how the show is” what our period involves “. I probably even advocated it was the anti-Trump show, knowing me. But as I sit in my darkened chamber, curtains closed against the sunbathe, bent over my iPad, waiting for another thumped- precisely one!- of Tan convincing some pot-bellied American daddy to swap his baggy sweatshirt for a shaped polo in a quality” that papas”, I’ve had to accept that my preoccupation has nothing to do with the world and everything to do with me.
The ordinary stream of consciousness that words the muzak in my foreman (” Don’t forget the dry-cleaning oh God let there be a seat on the bus should I find out more about North Korea mmm fairly thought some cheese “) has are totally replaced with imaginary conversations with the men from Queer Eye. On some profoundly hid, unexpected and unusually indigent height, I imagine these men can fasten me, and that is not something I’ve thought about anyone from reality Tv, ever. And this is because the men from Queer Eye seem( outstandingly) genuinely talented, and come across( uniquely for reality TV) as funny and wise and lovely.( The obvious exception to this is Antoni, the nominal chef of the display, who is lovely to look at but I strongly suspect doesn’t even know how to turn on a stave .) This is what we talk about 😛 TAGEND
Tan is the easiest-going see, which is why I believe he is the most liked within the group.( Go on, ask questions who on the show is really friends with who. I have sentiments !) I talk to Tan about how sometimes I buy invests not because I like them, but because I think they’re the sort of thing beings presume me to wear, although there is I know everyone is too busy thinking about their own lives to worry about my garbs. So do I anticipate my defining peculiarity is my wardrobe because I absence confidence in the actual me? Tan and I talk about this a lot on the bus.
Bobby( interior design)
I am currently doing up my living room, so Bobby and I are currently in constant contact the summer months. He reminded everyone that a chamber has to be practical and can’t merely be about fun wallpaper, and that there is a fine line between a area that says,” “Womens issues” draws bold, stylish testimonies !” and” “Womens issues” probably stops dried pampas grass in a monstrous Chinese urn .” I tell Bobby that, even though he is the least charismatic shoot member, I know he works the hardest, and while all Karamo has to do is give pep talks in a car, Bobby has to transport literal ceilings on his literal back. He gazes down, touched, and tells me he appreciates that.
Jonathan and I sing a lot about politics. I tell him how righteous it was when he shot Antoni down in a recent interview, after Antoni advocated it might be helpful for them to give a makeover to an all-out homophobe. Jonathan replied, in essence,” This is 2018, Antoni, and we don’t have occasion for your kumbaya politics, so stop interrupting your back to accommodate haters, and fight for your true instead .” As Jonathan would say, Y tush queen .
But I likewise talk to Jonathan about my “hairs-breadth”. I tell him that most of it fell down as a girl, due to anorexia, and never proliferated back properly, and while most online notes don’t bother me, when people snark about my mane I have- piling disgrace upon reproach- announced. Jonathan tells me I’m fabulous and those people are the literal worst, and he is right.
Karamo ( culture , whatever that symbolizes)
I think of Karamo as a constant, messianic, ridiculously handsome spirit in “peoples lives”, who gazes upon the choices I make and rarely announces me out on them. A little like God, yes, but I think of him more like the Patrick Swayze to my Whoopi Goldberg. He’s proud of me when I go to yoga. He benignly wheels his eyes when I drunkenly eat an entire birthday cake in front of an escapade of Frasier I’ve seen four times at 2am.
I never talk to Antoni.
