'Queer Eye' on Netflix is for Every Straight Guy

Before Netflix rebooted Queer Eye this year, I had never watched an episode of the original, Queer Eye For The Straight Guy. When that series premiered in 2003, gay men were rarely represented on television as anything more than a token, much less the faces of an entire series. Back then, the general opinion, at least where I was raised, was that the media was “shoving homosexuality down our throats”; alongside Will & Grace, Queer Eye For The Straight Guy was a chief culprit. That culture ultimately kept me from tuning in (forgive me, I was 14 years old).
But now, in 2018, as an adult man of progressive and liberal leanings, I can admit that I looked forward to giving the revamped series an honest shot. And I’m glad I did.
