As a gay man with little fashion sense and even less sense of sass, I can’t help but empathize with you.

On the other hand, I know lots of younger queer people who really love this show, not for what it’s broadcasting to straight/cis people but for what it gives to them personally.

If I had to choose a side, I’m sure I’d choose yours. But to each their own, I suppose. Taste is mysterious, and the Queer Eye guys could do a lot worse than demonstrate love and acceptance, no matter how cliche and even stereotyped it feels to some of us.
