The magic of Philadelphia meets the magic done by the Fab Five on Season 5 of Queer Eye, filmed in Philly and now streaming on Netflix.
Viewers can follow the stories of 10 hometown and regional heroes as they complete their lifestyle transformations with the assistance of the Fab Five — Tan France, Antoni Porowski, Karamo Brown, Bobby Berk and Jonathan Van Ness — and a host of Philly small businesses.
As fans of the show have come to expect, this season is as emotional as ever. The Philadelphia heroes featured this year let viewers into their homes and lives as they open up about personal challenges they hope the Fab Five can help them overcome.
The team blends their dining, fashion, culture, design and grooming expertise with the talents of business owners across Philadelphia to boost the confidence of these incredible residents who show the world what the real Philly looks like — strong, resilient and diverse.
Throughout, the City of Sisterly Love, the City of Murals, the City of James Beard Award Honorees and so much more gets the spotlight it deserves for its shopping, styling, wellness and dining scenes in the 10-episode run (the show’s longest season ever!).
See Antoni shop for fresh, local ingredients at Reading Terminal Market and The Italian Market; watch Karamo coach a couple through a tough moment at La Colombe in Fishtown; and see how Humphrey’s Flag Company works with Bobby and a featured guest to create LGBTQ-friendly banners.
The city’s restaurants, salons and boutiques can help people shine, whether they’re ready for a complete makeover or just need a little pick-me-up. Call ahead or check each businesses’ website to find out the best way to support right now while Philadelphia continues to be safer at home.
