Queer Eye makes over Jonathan’s old teacher in sweet season 4 trailer

Jonathan Van Ness in season 4 trailer of Queer Eye

Netflix just dropped the season four trailer of hit show Queer Eye and it features Jonathan making over his old teacher.

In the trailer out today (8 July), the Fab Five surprise a whole new host of unsuspecting people with amazing new makeovers.

One of those people is Jonathan Van Ness’ previous orchestra teacher, Cathy.

The style expert hijacks his old school’s announcement system and declares: ‘This is Jonathan Van Ness, formerly of Quincy Senior High School, wishing you a gorgeous day!’

The school gym then erupts into huge cheers and applause as the Fab Five run out into the crowd.

The team also help a man who has ‘never had a conversation with a gay person before’ as well as a woman who ‘has been wearing the same makeup and hairstyle since the 90s’.

‘Try not to cry,’ Jonathan Van Ness says in the video. ‘Try not to lose it.’

The season airs 19 July.

Last month, Netflix renewed Queer Eye for both season four and five.

Jonathan Van Ness comes out as non-binary

Jonathan came out as non-binary at the start of last month (10 June).

In an interview with Out Magazine, the Fab Five member said he prefers he/his pronouns, but does not identify as a man.

The grooming expert, who recently became nail polish brand Essie’s non-female ambassador, also spoke about his gender nonconforming attitudes to clothing.

In the interview, Van Ness spoke about how, as he ages, his relationship with his gender identity has gradually changed.

As a child, Van Ness used to put on his mother’s make-up, high heels, and scarves while playing in the family basement. Although, he said he could never wear such things at school in fear of being bullied.

‘I didn’t really put [my dressing] that together with “gender nonconforming” or “non-binary” or owning that as an identity until recently,’ Van Ness said.

He added: ‘The older I get, the more I think that I’m non-binary. I’m gender nonconforming.

‘Like, some days I feel like a man, but then other days I feel like a woman. I don’t really. I think my energies are really all over the place.

‘Any opportunity I have to break down stereotypes of the binary, I am down for it, I’m here for it,’ he said.
