20 Queer Eye Lessons We’re Thankful For
“You have to find the strength to find people who love you enough to fight for it.”
“Black Girl Magic” shows our hero, Jess, as she struggles with accepting that her family cast her out for her sexual orientation. We’ve heard the Fab Five and other heroes discuss similar stories, and it breaks our hearts. Thankfully, we have Tan to remind us that sometimes it’s not always about our blood relations, but our chosen family. Tan helps Jess remember that her friend of almost a decade is someone who has helped her get as far as she has. It’s a great lesson to acknowledge that we have the ability to find people outside our biological families who can make differences in our worlds and who will love us unconditionally. Family doesn’t have to be based on DNA, it can be based on connection, relationships, and love.
