The ‘Queer Eye’ Guys Took a Trip to Capitol Hill

Queer Eye, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Nancy Pelosi

Their visit to Washington, D.C, coincided with hearings for the Equality Act.

Can you believe?

Four of Queer Eye's Fab Five visited Capitol Hill today and met with Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.), who had been tweeting back and forth with the show's interior-decorating master Bobby Berk.

Jonathan Van Ness, Bobby Berk, Tan France, and Antoni Porowski posed for several photo ops with the much-beloved Ocasio-Cortez as well as house speaker and Drag Race guest judge Nancy Pelosi.

The meeting came only a few days after Berk extended an offer to Ocasio-Cortez to decorate her Congressional office via Twitter.

"Swing by our office!" Ocasio-Cortez responded. "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 group's trip to Washington, D.C. also coincides with congressional hearings for the Equality Act, a bill that would add gender identity and sexual orientation to the list of identities protected by the Civil Rights Act.

While France and Porowski have stayed mostly apolitical, Van Ness has gotten into hot water for his political tweets before, including when he said "not all republicans are racist" and suggested compromising on health care reform. Berk weighs in on politics sometimes and recently tweeted about boycotting hotels owned by Brunei, a country that just this week instituted laws that punish homosexuality with stoning.
