Netflix’s ‘Queer Eye’ features San Antonio transgender powerlifter on new season
n the latest season of Queer Eye, the Fab 5 set temporary roots in Austin to meet their new heroes: a honk-tonk dance instructor; a rancher; an entire prom committee; two restaurant owners; a doctor; and a powerlifter, San Antonio’s own Angel Flores. Flores is a 22-year-old transgender trainer and Olympic weightlifting coach who dominates in the gym but needed a spot in building up her confidence.
The Netflix reboot launched its Austin season on New Year’s Eve after postponing the series for months due to the pandemic. The show stars the Fab 5 – Jonathan Van Ness, Bobby Berk, Karamo Brown, Antoni Porowski, and Tan France – with each bringing their own skill set to makeover, support, and provide guidance into the lives of their heroes.
