Need a little interior (and life) inspiration? Check out Queer Eye Season 7! You’re sure to experience an uplifting moment, and probably a few tears along the way too. And this week’s hero – a woman helping those who were formerly incarcerated- will certainly leave you feeling all the feels!
We meet Mary in Episode 6 – “Ms. Mary Quite Contrary”. Over 20 years ago, Mary Henderson-Uloho was arrested, and sentenced to 12 years in prison. After being released in 2014, she went on and found SisterHearts, Inc., a thrift store and “decarceration” program that helps other women who have served time in prison, focusing on mental health and healing. While her time in prison took a toll on Mary’s mental health, it also alienated her from her 7 children – and caused her to miss the funeral of her firstborn son. Mary has worked through much of the trauma but is definitely in need of a reset to boost her spirit and help reconnect with her children.
The Fab Five arrive at Mary’s store, and after playing dress up, they get to work giving her all the tools she needs to start really living and let go of the pain from her past. Jonathan cuts off the dreads she has had for 20 years, Tan outfits her in fun colors and flattering silhouettes, and Karama invited her family to meet the new Mary – and start a new chapter together!
