Grab your tissues for the Queer Eye season four trailer

The Fab Five make over Jonathan’s high school orchestra teacher

The trailer for the fourth season of hit TV show Queer Eye is here, and it’s more emotional than ever.

Seeing the Fab Five we know and love (Karamo Brown, Bobby Berk, Tan France, Antoni Porowski, and Jonathan Van Ness) get together once more, the new trailer for the Netflix show sees them focus this season on local heroes in the Kansa City region – Jonathan’s former orchestra teacher, a veteran, a widowed father, and more. Jonathan can be seen expressing his gratitude for his school orchestra teacher, who he says “literally saved people’s lives, his included”. With this preview ready to break us into a million pieces before we even see a full episode, it looks like more worthwhile, life-changing conversations, makeovers, and positive affirmations are in reach. The trailer includes a snippet of one subject admitting that they’ve never had a conversation with a gay person before, as well as Bobby giving us the advice we all need: “People should always remember, it’s never too late to start over”.

Speaking to the Metro, Bobby Berk – the show’s design specialist – revealed that they’re making over the series’ first wheelchair user. 

“We help our first hero with disabilities, in a wheelchair. It was a very special episode for me, not only because I connected with him, because he was one of the most amazing, inspiring, awesome men you’ll ever meet,” he said.

Aside from the show, the Queer Eye cast have been busy spreading their love and light – Tan recently released his memoir Naturally Tan. In it, he covers his own journey to self-acceptance, particularly with regards to his race and skin. 

“The importance of being pale is very bizarre,” France writes, discussing his experience of skin bleaching. "When I was five, I remember thinking, 'God, I’d give anything to be white. I just want to be white, I want to be white, I want to be white.’ I had been so conditioned to think that if you were white, you were automatically more attractive.”

Today, he feels radically different: “If you ask me what my favourite thing about my appearance is, I’ll say my skin. I think my skin colour is beautiful.”

Watch the emotional trailer for the fourth season below. Season four of Queer Eye will drop with all eight episodes on Netflix July 19.
