Just days ago Queer Eye’s Bobby Berk tweeted Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez with an open invitation to use his design talents to decorate her office in D.C.
Hey @AOC! I’m in DC all week girl! Put me to work! “Have time… will work for democracy!”

To which she graciously replied:
Swing by our office!
We’ve barely had time to hang anything up, three of my staffers are expecting babies, and we’ve got a bach pad/warehouse type situation out here. 😩 SOS!
(The good news is that people are leaving a rainbow of positive post-its on our wall so that’s cute) https://t.co/vOHE6tHuMA

So the ball was rolling and now days later, the Berk took AOC’s invitation seriously and swung by her office—and he wasn’t alone.
Bobby Berk visited AOC’s office accompanied by this Fab 5 pals, sans Karamo.
The Fab FOUR toured the Capitol office and stopped to pose for some selfies with AOC and Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi.

29-year-old Congresswoman Ocasio-Cortez, has been very open about her role as an ally to the LGBTQ+ community. She has tweeted LGBTQ+ public figures like RuPaul.
On Capitol Hill we wear pink 😉
TY @jvn, @bobbyberk, @tanfrance & @antoni for visiting + helping us push for the #EqualityAct, & be there to watch Congress pass the Violence Against Women Act & War Powers Resolution to end U.S. involvement in Yemen.

Can we talk about Jonathan Van Ness in this pleated skirt, tho?
Did Bobby Berk really put the Queer Eye touch on AOC’s office? That’s a special episode we’d love to watch on Netflix!
