20 Queer Eye Lessons We’re Thankful For
“Sometimes we get caught up in our own struggles and our own battles … we forget that there’s somebody next to us that needs our love …”
Season two episode, “Sky’s the Limit,” is an emotional one, and we’re so thankful for it. Skyler, the hero of the episode, is a transgender man who just recently had top surgery. This is the Fab Five’s first episode with a transgender hero, and some of them have some things to learn about the community and its place in the LGBTQ world. Tan discusses feeling ignorant about the Trans community and the struggles they face as a group and as individuals, and later, Karamo and Sky have a touching conversation about how sometimes we get so caught up in our own fights and plights that we forget how many people around us could use our advocacy. We love that the Fab Five are able to acknowledge their own faults in understanding others despite doing so much to help people on daily basis, and we love this Queer Eye lesson to not only always check on your neighbors, but to sit, listen and learn from them instead of making assumptions about their battles.
