Have you taken your trip to New Orleans yet? Well, not an actual trip, but a journey to the Big Easy via Queer Eye Season 7! The Fab Five are living it up, and helping transform the lives of lots of deserving folks. And with Pride Month just a few days away, today we’re highlighting an LGBTQIA+ hero who discovers how to truly love herself – and share that love with her partner.
We meet Steph Williams in Episode 2 – “Superfan Steph”. Steph is a New Orleans Saints superfan living at her father’s home with her partner of 6 years, Rachael. The couple has purchased a new home, and are anxious to start their new life together (and finally have some privacy). But Steph is struggling with her queer identity and confidence, which in turn is affecting her relationship and outlook on life. She’s uncomfortable holding hands in public and has trauma from a homophobic incident that occurred years ago. But underneath it all, there’s a bright and outgoing fan ready to live her best (out) life!
The Fab Five arrive to cheer on this superfan, clear out some of her sports memorabilia, and help her connect with herself and her partner in a deep, meaningful and healing way.
