Popular online streaming video-on-demand site Netflix has announced a re-boot of the popular 2003 Bravo TV series Queer Eye For The Straight Guy.
The revamped cast will include designer Bobby Berk, former “Real World: Philadelphia” star Karamo Brown, who will focus on culture; Antoni Porowski, who will focus on food and wine; Jonathan Van Ness, who specializes in grooming; and Tan France, who will give fashion advice.
“It’s a new time with a new audience,” show creator, David Collins explained to Entertainment Weekly. “If the original round was about tolerance, this time it is about acceptance.”
Original cast members Carson Kressley, Ted Allen, Jai Rodriguez, Kyan Douglas and Thom Felicia were rumoured to join the show in some capacity but no word on if, or how, the old crew will rejoin the Netflix version.
We’ve Insta-stalked the boys to bring you these pics, enjoy them before some one in publicity forces them to take them down!

#nationalcomingoutday — I came out of the womb as fem as could be, especially considering I’m from the middle of America. I loved barbies, wrestling (for the toplessness of it all) and figure skating, I started telling people I was gay in 7th grade, that didn’t go well. I had a lot of hate, a lot of meanness, but that made me strong and able to laugh at almost anything, not to mention nearly impossible to embarrass! I love who I am, I love my LGBTQ family and when your ready to be seen know there are so many people ready to catch you!! #lgbtq #lgbtqfam #love #gay
Tan France – Fashion
Queer Eye for the Straight Guy streams on Netflix this February.
