The Creator Of ‘Queer Eye’

Queer Eye is one of the most celebrated reality TV shows on the planet. The original version and its Netflix reboot have been nominated for a combined 20 Emmy awards and won 9 of them.

But the idea for the show? It was born at a wine and cheese soiree, where David Collins watched a straight woman berate her partner for not looking more like a stylish gay man.

Collins, raised a Christian, believes God has used him as a vessel to spread the truth. He reflects on how others can do for their community what Queer Eye has done for the LGBTQ movement.
