While it’s undeniable that makeover reality shows have gained popularity in recent years, Netflix’s “Queer Eye” separates apart from the competition because to its unique perspective. After all, it centres around five extraordinarily talented individuals (referred to as the Fab Five) who provide their particular talents to assist others (or Heroes) in realising their full potential via confidence. In fact, brothers from the University of New Orleans’ Lambda Chi Alpha fraternity were among them in season 7. If you’re just interested in learning more about them, we’ve got you covered.
Lambda Chi Fraternity Brothers’ Queer Eye Journey
Ian Raybourn and Josh Allen, two seniors, nominated their fraternity for a makeover because they genuinely wanted to move in the right path but didn’t know where to begin. That’s because the brothers had never learned how to be independent, let alone take care of themselves or their surroundings, despite the fact that they were young adults away from home in university. However, because Ian, Josh, Cooper Lemons, Demario Struiken, Josh Johnson, Marco Barahona, and Ryan Parker were aware of the kind of men they aspired to be, they made the decision to look for some much-needed assistance.
The Fab Five arrived at that point prepared to give the seven brothers a stern wake-up call, but they soon discovered that they already had what it took to succeed because of the sincere ties they had created. Even though they had all previously believed they weren’t the frat type, the group was not only brothers in name only; they were also actually one another’s chosen family. Instead, they asserted that this club provided them with greater care, a support system, a purpose, lifelong friendships, and more than they could have ever dreamed. This care was apparent throughout their time together.
The brothers were actually at ease enough to criticise and praise one another while shopping for a new wardrobe with fashion expert Tan France. They were also self-assured enough to choose accessories from the women’s area. Even during their grooming session with Jonathan Van Ness and as they were eagerly picking up new skills from cuisine expert Antoni Porowski, this absolute lack of toxic masculinity in them became apparent. Before interior designer Bobby Berk used his magic to symbolise everything the lads stood for in their home, culture expert Karamo Brown helped the boys tear down any last remaining walls by demonstrating that it was appropriate to express their emotions.
When it was all said and done, Tan told the boys, “You should be so, so proud of yourselves.” “I’m very excited about where we’re going if this is what our country’s future for men looks like.” It’s so difficult to find your chosen family, and that is what they are to each other, he continued in a confessional. They show concern. They are devoted. They help one another. Jonathan himself said as much at one point: “Watching these young people step into this journey with whole, full hearts, asking questions, supporting each other, and also being kind to themselves at the same time, it’s really heartwarming.”
Where Are the Lambda Chi Fraternity Brothers Now?
Considering their current situation, the Lambda Chi Alpha Fraternity Brothers seem to be doing well for themselves and have even managed to follow the Fab Five’s instructions. Additionally, as shown by each of their social media sites, they are now closer than ever, whether it be with newly pledging members or senior graduating members like cinema students Josh Allen and Ian Raybourn. This Tolmas Scholar Intern appears to be graduating from Cooper Lemons in 2024 with a dual Bachelor’s degree in political science and interdisciplinary studies.

Then there is future graphic designer Demario Struiken, who will earn his bachelor’s degree in studio/fine arts in 2025 and already has work experience as a Leadership Institute marketing intern. Marco Barahona, on the other hand, is anticipated to graduate from the University of New Orleans in 2024 while Josh Johnson is anticipated to graduate in 2024 with a degree in Mechanical Engineering. Ryan Parker, the chapter president, is the anticipated class of 2019 business degree graduate.
