Even if you haven’t seen a single episode of the Queer Eye reboot, you’ve probably noticed the new Fab Five taking the world by storm (in a wholesome, loving way). The positive outreach of the Queer Eye Guys has gone far beyond just the people they help in the show as they tackle tough subjects publicly and use their new-found platforms to draw attention to issues near and dear to their hearts. One such issue is LGBTQ rights, representation and acceptance and soon they’re taking it straight to the Prime Minster of Canada.

The Liberal Party of Canada announced over the weekend that Canadian Antoni Porowski, Queer Eye‘s food and wine expert, will be meeting Prime Minister Justin Trudeau for brunch in Montreal ahead of the city’s Pride festivities. The duo (who could definitely give the Canadian Ryans a run for their money) will reportedly be discussing “the importance of Pride and Canada’s contribution today” and one lucky winner and a guest will get to join them.

Yes, that’s right. The meeting is funded by the Liberal Party (so take that with a grain of salt) and participants who enter the #LoveWins draw will have a chance to win a seat at the table. The prize also includes “dinner on the town” in Montreal and some “Liberal swag” for the parade. The partisanship isn’t subtle by any means, but who wouldn’t want to sit down for some avocado toast with Antoni Porowski?

Antoni was born and raised in Montreal and graduated from Concordia University. On Queer Eye, he is known (and often razzed) for swooping in with a tea towel slung over his shoulder and offering simplistic recipes like a salad consisting of only avocado and grapefruit slices (in his defense: he’s making quick and easy meals that are practical and functional for the people he’s helping). Porowski also announced last week that he will be opening a “fast-casual” restaurant in New York City later this year.

The Pride brunch contest closes August 2 and doesn’t require a donation to enter. The prize includes air fare to Montreal, accommodations for three nights, dinner vouchers, that Liberal swag and tickets to the brunch event. Montreal Pride is August 9 to 19 and the date of the trip is based on the winner’s availability.

Fans of Queer Eye  (and Antoni’s co-stars) are already freaking out over the meeting. And yes, there are jokes about Antoni’s “cooking.”

Now, what are the odds that the Liberals are going to livestream the whole thing for the rest of us?
