The Queer Eye hosts are the latest notable figures to throw their support behind Joe Biden’s Presidential campaign.
The fab five featured in a YouTube video posted over the weekend, promoting a virtual fundraiser that they will be taking part in tomorrow (September, 1), alongside Joe Biden’s wife, Jill.
The video was also shared on Joe Biden’s social media channels.
In it, the hosts – Jonathan Van Ness, Bobby Berk, Karamo Brown, Tan France, and Antoni Porowski – ask viewers such questions as, “Do you care about ending this pandemic?”; “Do you care homeless veterans? About the environment?”; “Trans lives? Black lives?”; “Affordable healthcare?”; and – adds Dr. Jill Biden – “Do you want to make life better for us teachers?”
If you answer yes to any of those questions, they urge you to get involved with the upcoming U.S. election on November, 3rd. One way is to join the grassroots, virtual fundraising event they’re hosting tomorrow at 12.15pm ET.
According to Biden spokesperson Michael LaRosa, Biden’s daughter Ashley and several of her grandchildren are also expected to participate in Tuesday’s event.
This is not the first time the Queer Eye hosts have got political. Jonathan Van Ness previously voiced his support for Elizabeth Warren while she was still in the race for the Democratic nomination. He also took part in a “Community of Pride” event with Joe and Jill Biden in June.
Other celebrities to show support for Biden include Billy Porter, Eva Longoria, Kerry Washington, and John Legend, who all participated in the recent DNC. Cyndi Lauper will be participating in an LGBTQ Biden fundraiser on September, 14.
Tomorrow’s Queer Eye event comes a day after an online Biden fundraiser being hosted today by Cher. The Cher fundraiser (for which tickets reportedly cost between $1,000 per person, and rise to $100,000, according to Deadline) will also feature Pete Buttigieg and Sen. Tammy Baldwin. The Queer Eye event is being billed as a ‘grassroots’ event, with donations of any amount welcome.
