Netflix’s Queer Eye wins Outstanding Reality Program at the 30th Annual GLAAD Media Awards in Los Angeles

Last evening, Netflix’s Queer Eye took home the award for Outstanding Reality Program at the 30th Annual GLAAD Media Awards in Los Angeles. The diverse “Fab Five” – including Bobby Berk, Karamo Brown, Tan France, Antoni Porowski and Jonathan Van Ness – and the executive producers of the show accepted the award on-stage from Nico Santos and Meghan Trainor. Their full speech can be found below:

As a reboot of the 2003 Bravo series Queer Eye for the Straight Guy, the new Queer Eye has taken the entertainment world by storm, as it follows the expertise of the vibrant Fab Five. Although Queer Eye is a makeover show, the message of the series centers around the idea of finding commonality in the face of cultural, racial and religious barriers. As five gay men who promote the values of self-care and love, Queer Eye’s Fab Five have shown the world that we are all a lot more similar than we are different. Overall, Queer Eye continues to push the conversation into areas that others won’t, highlighting the need for acceptance, understanding, and positive cultural change in today’s society.

The other nominees in this category included American Idol, I Am Jazz, Love & Hip Hop, and RuPaul's Drag Race.
