I'm not ashamed to say that I'm completely obsessed with Queer Eye. It's quite possibly the most hopeful and cathartic TV show for our current political climate. It's so easy to watch the news or read the headlines and lose hope, but Queer Eye’s message of connecting across all divides is humanizing and powerful. I'm also obsessed with the Fab Five, of course, so when they let slip little details of their personal lives, like in episode two of season two when we learned how Tan France knew Rob France was the one, well, it just gives me life. It also made me want to know everything about their love!
It's actually a really amazing story, fit for a Queer Eye episode, in that it bridges what many might think to be a insurmountable divide, specifically religion. Tan is a Muslim immigrant from Britain and Rob is a Wyoming-born Mormon cowboy and illustrator living in Utah, which is not exactly the pairing you would expect to work. But when the two reportedly met on a dating app, they quickly realized they had found the one. They've now been together for 10 years, married for eight of those years, and are planning to start their family. What can I say? They're totally couple #goals. But how did Tan know they were meant to be? Well, here's what he's said about his hubs over the years.
