Netflix’s “Queer Eye” reboot has been widely celebrated for tackling issues of race and religion along with LGBTQ acceptance. But the Fab Five’s food and wine expert, Antoni Porowski, wants the show to get even more political — by making over a legislator.
Speaking to Page Six at a World Immunization Week field day hosted by Rotary and Red Nose Day, the 34-year-old shared that if he could choose a “hero” for a future episode, he’d pick “anybody in politics who’s either very, very left or very, very right, who has strict one-sided views. I’d try to bring them a little closer to the middle and understand that there’s always another side.”
Until the Fab Five make their way to Capitol Hill, Porowski can continue to spread a message of acceptance and understanding through his preferred medium: the graphic T-shirt. Throughout Season 1 of the “Queer Eye” reboot, the food whiz modeled shirts that referenced everything from his favorite bands (The Strokes, The National) to beloved books (Hanya Yanagihara’s “A Little Life”) — but were he to design his own line of statement tees, Porowski would want to send an even stronger message.
It’s that same sense of obligation that prompted the TV star to support an event celebrating the importance of vaccines. “Although polio is no longer present in the US, I think we have a responsibility to show up for countries that don’t have the same access to health care that we do,” Porowski explained.
