If you thought there was no way to make American politics cool after Obama, you obviously didn’t consider that four of the Fab Five would one day bestow their presence upon D.C. in the name of social justice and equality.

Well, buckle your seat belts and get your pink RBG dissent collars ready because it happened.

Founding fathers but make it fashion @queereye

Beloved Queer Eye hosts Jonathan van Ness, Antoni Porowski, Tan France and Bobby Berk visited the U.S. capitol this week to meet with Democratic lawmakers including rep. Alexandria Ocasio Cortez (who is constantly making waves with both progressive policies and sheer coolness) and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (who is also pretty cool).

Thankfully, the crew documented the entire day on social media with dozens of stories and multiple posts of the fab five (minus Karamo Brown) with their favourite political leaders.

Never been more proud @ocasio2018 @speakerpelosi

Fab guy number five—Karamo Brown—didn’t make the trip to Washington, but he tweeted his support for bipartisanship and creating positive change in politics (so it was just a normal day for him).

Jonathan, Antoni, Tan and Bobby weren’t just there for the photo-op; they wanted to draw attention to the American Equality Act and encourage lawmakers to vote “yes” on the legislation which would ensure federal protections against discrimination for members of the LGBTQ+ community. The four spoke to the Library of Congress on Wednesday to highlight the importance of the federal legislation.

“[It’s important for] LGBTQIA youth growing up today, if they felt the assurance and the confidence that their heterosexual and/or cisgender counterparts felt, in terms of basic civil rights,” Antoni said. “That affects you on a macro level in how you are perceived by society, and also on a personal level of what your self-worth is.”

The Queer Eye guys are no strangers to politics and fighting for LGBTQ+ rights. Not only do they often engage in difficult conversations about injustices, misconceptions, points of contention and stereotypes on their show (while we sob at the TV), they have their own individual ways of making positive change. Jonathan’s podcast, Getting Curious with Jonathan van Ness, often tackles big issues and Tan recently shared that his main reason for joining the Queer Eye cast was to represent “people like me on TV.”
