Queer Eye Season 4: Wesley – The Makeover and Reveal

We are back with another transformation from Queer Eye. Today it is all about one of our makeovers from Season 4 – Wesley.

We met Wesley during episode 2 of season 4, and if you haven’t already tuned into the newest season (or this episode) then there are some spoilers ahead. Wesley Hamilton, a single father who was paralyzed from the waist down six years ago after being shot in the spine, allowed us to come in and transform his space, but more than anything he left us feeling inspired and humbled.

After his accident, Wesley decided to change his mindset and bring about change not only to his own life but to others. He dove into fitness and nutrition and founded Disabled But Not Really, a nonprofit organization that helps people with disabilities work towards their wellness goals. For someone that devotes their life to others – teaching them forgiveness, wellbeing, and positivity – it was time to give back to Wesley.

We came in and made over the living room, kitchen, bedroom, and bathroom. It was one of our most transformative makeovers to date. We took down walls, totally remodeled his kitchen and made every part of his space more accessible for how he uses it. His new space not only gives him a place to call home but is fully functional for his needs.

“It is amazing the amount of comfort that I feel inside my home now.”

  1. I am a huge fan of the show and I hope you guys are able to help many people like Wesley. I think the most beneficial thing you can do in regards to accessibility is to employ an Occupational Therapist to consult the homes/offices because they specialize in home modifications, but whether or not you had one, you did a beautiful job!

  2. I loved this episode. My aunt recently had a surgery to have a brain tumor removed. Unfortunately the surgery wasn’t successful and she lost movement of her right side of the body. She was in the hospital for a month and when she went back home we had to do a lot of changes to her home. With everything that has happened to her I realized how thankful we have to be for the small things, as simple as going to the bathroom and have privacy and space and a little independence. You gave us a lot of ideas to implement in her house and in her life now. Thank you 🙏🏼

  3. This was the most amazing transformation! Wesley is an incredible human being – you did so much to help him become free in his own home. I loved the work you did, but, I especially loved the accommodations you created for him. Bravo!

  4. This is absolutely wonderful. I wish more would do this. There would be times id see a makeover show regarding a house or wardrobe and have NO idea where to find it. Thank you for doing this! I am ready to shop haha!

  5. I absolutely loved this episode. My mother is an Occupational Therapist by trade, artist by heart. She owns her own small business that specializes in Home Modifications for the disabled, ‘but not really’ :), aging in place & other special cases. I was very excited to show her this episode so she could see that this kind of work is being done on a larger platform. We are trying to reach out to more people & raise awareness for these types of upgrades in peoples homes for professional, empathetic, and of course, aesthetic solutions for long term care, especially for the ones who may not realize that they need it. If occupational services are ever in need, we are here and eager to help!

    1. That’s awesome! Glad you and you mom are shedding light on this issue. Keep up the good work.

  6. Will you be posting on the design for Episode 1 of Season 4? There was some artwork that was in that design that I’d love to get. Thanks!
