Yesterday gay social media was screaming as four of the #Fab5 from Netflix’s Queer Eye paid a visit to Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and had a private tour and photo opportunities with her and Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi.
We have the most diverse American congress ever, I’m lifted up in seeing that a United States that values Equality & protection for all is currently fighting for that. We’re making it rain pantsuits & equality in 2020. pic.twitter.com/k7J2cCpXep

That’s not all–Bobby Berk, Tan France, Jonathan Van Ness, and Antoni Porowski were in D.C. making their rounds at various national institutions, including the Library of Congress with the first African American, female Librarian of Congress, Carla Hayden.
Fabulous night hosting the cast of @QueerEye and showing them items fr the @librarycongress collection incl Mrs. Lincoln’s pearls, lock of Beethoven’s hair, Paganini’s ravioli recipe and the Eames papers. Thank you @antoni @bobbyberk @jvn @tanfrance for inspiring us all. #QEinDC pic.twitter.com/UEMEVqp6yC

A gay librarian’s dream!
The stars of Queer Eye were in D.C. to lobby for the Equality Act, an LGBTQ+ non-discrimination bill that would expand current civil rights laws to also include sexual orientation and gender identity.
But one thing was very obvious during the meeting of the fierce and fabulous minds. The fifth member of Queer Eye, Karamo Brown, was missing. Was he busy on a spiritual and cultural journey?
We don’t know.
But hours after the images of the QE stars with AOC and Nancy Pelosi went viral, Karamo took to Twitter with some very interesting tweets.
The first tweet read:
The thing I love about the #Fab5 the most is that we all don’t hold the same view but we respect each other and the process.
The second tweet read:
For me, its important to champion leaders who understand the importance of speaking the truth and who also understand that our democracy is a bipartisan system & in order to see sustainable change U must find a way to work w/ the other side while not disrespecting your own party
Hmmmmm, what is THAT about?
It seems that his followers are equally puzzled about the gay black man’s cryptic and quasi political statement regarding his colleagues. Or was it about AOC or Nancy Pelosi?
What do y’all think? Discuss!
