Kansas City is getting more of the Fab Five treatment. Season 3 of Queer Eye brought “inside and out” makeovers to eight individuals in and around the area. Now, another KC-based season of the Emmy-winning Netflix series will arrive on the streaming platform on July 19. Like the third season, episodes for the fourth season were filmed here last summer.

Standout moments from Season 3 include the refashioned Jones Bar-B-Q family business, a young LGBTQ woman from Lawrence and a divorced father and children’s camp director out of La Cygne. The Fab Five Loft, where the hosts conduct a lot of their work on the show, was in the Abdiana Properties building in the Crossroads.
The first two seasons of Queer Eye were filmed in the Atlanta, Georgia area and the show announced that they’re heading to Philadelphia for Season 5.
Queer Eye is a reboot of the early-2000s reality series Queer Eye for the Straight Guy, in which five gay men offered food, interior design and fashion advice to straight men. The updated version aims to bridge the gap and includes what they call “heroes” of many backgrounds, with five new experts: Antoni Porowski (food and wine), Tan France (fashion), Karamo Brown (culture and lifestyle), Bobby Berk (design) and Jonathan Van Ness (grooming).
