Get your tissues and avocado toast ingredients ready, because the second season of *Queer Eye* premieres on Netflix June 15. And just one week before the premiere, Netflix has dropped the trailer.
The teaser, which is set to the recently-released Betty Who version of the show's theme song, shows our Fab Five—Bobby Berk, Karamo Brown, Tan France, Antoni Porowski, and Jonathan Van Ness—driving around Georgia in their trademark black truck and casually changing lives. If you recall, the first season featured subjects who weren't just straight men, departing from the show's original Queer Eye for the Straight Guy format. The second season does this, too, and even pushes forward by featuring a female contestant as well as a trans man named Skyler.
Last month, the Fab Five spoke to Entertainment Weekly about including more than just straight men on the show. Of Skyler's episode, which was reportedly filmed just a few weeks after his gender confirmation surgery, Van Ness said, "One of my closest friends is a trans man who is incredible. And a lot of my clients are trans women. So I am really hoping that we can do right by our trans brothers and sisters." He continued, "[Skyler] is going through so much, so [it was important to be] gentle and respectful and not to be a queenie know-it-all dum-dum when you're trying to be a loving person."
Brown added, "I think, as a culture, people need to get away from the bathroom stuff and realize that these are just human beings trying to live their lives, and it's something that we all take for granted. Hearing Skyler, the first time I got to talk to him, say, 'I tried to get my license several times' — think about if you were just trying to go to the airport, and you could not get on [the plane] because your license said something different. It's just about people living a comfortable, protected, respected life."
