Queer Eye is back baby! After a wait that felt like forever, Season 7 is streaming right now. And that also means it’s time to give you an inside look at the makeovers for each and every hero from the new season in New Orleans! We’re kicking things off with one hero who has overcome so much – and is rolling right into a brighter future!
We meet Ray “Speedy” Walker in Episode 3 – “Speedy For Life”.
A standout basketball player in high school, Speedy’s life changed drastically on one fateful day in 2020. At just 18, he was in a car accident that left him paralyzed from the chest down – and took the lives of his mother and aunt. Afterward, Speedy faced many physical and mental challenges while becoming insecure and closed off from the outside world. But even at one of the darkest times in his life, he still remained positive and created a TikTok account (which is how he got discovered for the show) to share his inspiring message of resilience.
Upon meeting Speedy, the Fab Five were immediately touched by his story and ready to help him roll into a bright future – with a new look, new cooking skills, and a new outlook on life.
