I have a gay friend in his twenties who binged on Queer Eye for a while and even got me to watch some of it.

Right, Fred Shirley?

I quite agree that it’s overall very positive and uplifting, and that internalized homophobia can cause some of us to resist its divine kitsch .

While some LGBTQ people take issue with some stereotyping in the series, I don’t think any one artistic endeavor can be all things to all people.

I like your perspective!
