It's official! The wait for the newest season of Queer Eye is over. Queer Eye is finally back on Netflix for another round of changing lives and this season the story gets extra personal. That's because the guys head back to Jonathan Van Ness' old stomping grounds, his high school in Quincy, Illinois, to help his old music teacher, Kathi Dooley. While helping Kathi work on herself during episode 1 of season 4, the guys also made some time to chat with members of the school's Gay Straight Alliance. Not only did the teens get to have a raw conversation with all five members of the Fab 5, but they also got to make blue-deviled potatoes with Antoni, making them the envy of all Queer Eye fans.
During the episode, the guys give Kathi a complete makeover while helping her realize that she needs to make time for herself. She's the dedicated director of the school's music department and she spends all her time focused on her students and in her office. Spoiler alert: She's got a cot in there.
In the midst of helping Kathi work on herself, the Queer Eye guys talk to the school's Gay Straight Alliance about what it means to be queer and non-binary.
During the conversation, Jonathan mentioned that the existence of such a group is something he would have never imagined, since he said he couldn't walk 10 steps without someone bullying him or calling him a derogatory term during his time as a student at the school.
"At that time, [the] Gay Straight Alliance is something I didn't think would ever be like literally allowed," Jonathan said.
The students also opened up about their own experiences coming out or trying to define their identities. "I'm having a really hard time finding who I am, I don't know if I'm straight, I don't know if I'm gay. I've had relations with both and it's really hard to share that," said one of the students.
Jonathan, Karamo, Antoni, Bobby and Tan all got to be teachers for a week as they shared all the knowledge they've learned in their own personal journeys. Seventeen has an exclusive video of the Fab Five's conversation with the students. Check it out below!
