Earlier this year Netflix debuted its reboot of Queer Eye for the Straight Guy—now called Queer Eye—and it offered viewers a heartwarming take on a group of five gay men, not only providing men with fashion makeovers but partaking in conversations about love, loss and everything in between.
The show was a hit with viewers and Netflix recently announced that Queer Eye is coming back for a second season, only a few months after its premiere.
The show’s stars, Bobby Berk, Karamo Brown, Tan France, Antoni Porowski and Jonathan Van Ness wants people to know that the show isn’t just about LGBTQ issues, but something more.
“It’s not about LGBTQ reaching out to heterosexuals. It’s about human connection and what it is to be connected,” Van Ness tells EBONY. “And what it is to communicate, what it is to come together. It’s really a human story.”
“We have some very culturally relevant conversations that I think are really important, which are making people laugh and cry,” Brown says.
The new season of Queer Eye premieres June 15.
