Tan France From 'Queer Eye' Just Became a US Citizen and the Fab Five Is Sending Him Love | 22 Words

Tan France from Netflix's Queer Eye has officially become a US citizen and there's one huge reason why he made the life-changing step...

We all know Tan France as a fifth of the Fab Five.

Queer Eye is one of the most beloved shows on Netflix, and it's not hard to see why...

We were first introduced to Queer Eye's "Fab Five" in February 2018.

Netflix released the first season of the Emmy-award winning show last year. We saw culture expert, Karamo Brown, fashion designer, Tan France, grooming consultant, Jonathan Van Ness, food and wine specialist, Antoni Porowski, and interior designer, Bobby Berk, together dubbed "the Fab Five", pull together to transform the lives of people across Kansas City.

But this wasn't actually the first time that Queer Eye hit our screens...

Netflix's version of the show is actually a remake of Bravo’s Queer Eye for the Straight Guys that aired a decade ago. Though reboots are often not as successful as the original show, it seems that Netflix defied odds with this hugely popular revival.

So what does a makeover from the Fab Five actually involve?

Those being made over on the show quite literally have every area of their life re-vamped.

From a home renovation and brand new hairstyle to a whole new wardrobe, cuisine lessons, and even life coaching...

The Fab Five delve deep into the lives of each person featured on the hit series.

But it's much more than just a makeover...

Throughout the series, the Fab Five meet with a diverse line-up of contestants, from those with opposing political views to a trans man recently recovering from top surgery. The gang touch the lives of these people in a unique way. Throughout the series, the group have done some incredible things such as helping one guy come out to his family and helping another come to terms with the loss of his wife.

For the viewer, the show's certainly an emotional rollercoaster.

The show is filled with tear-jerking moments.

Jess, who had been kicked out of her family home after coming out as gay, appeared on season 3 of the series. We watched her confidence grow as the Fab Five worked their magic and it was pretty emotional, to say the least.

The series has propelled to TV stardom and has countless awards to show for it...

The show has picked up an Emmy, a GLAAD award, and a TCA award, as well as receiving rave reviews from both critics and Netflix watchers.

The Fab Five are so popular that they even recently featured in a very famous singer's music video.

That's right! It seems like some of our favorite celebs are fans of the show, too, as Johnathon, Bobby, Karamo, Antoni, and Tan make an appearance in Taylor Swift's music video for her single "You Need to Calm Down," donning glitzy, colorful costumes. Well, did we expect anything less from the Fab Five?

Tan France is the only British member of the gang.

And the fashion expert has taken a big step this week...

Tan shared some happy news on his Instagram.

He's officially a US citizen.

He described the move as a "monumental" moment in his life.

"A few minutes ago, I officially became a U.S citizen!!" Tan wrote in his post. "For me, this is monumental. It’s something I’ve been working towards for literally 20 years, which makes this all the more emotional."

Tan went on to share the important step he plans to take now that he's officially a citizen...

"And now, I will exercise my constitutional right as an American. Today, I will register to vote, and vote for the change I wish to see in OUR nation."

Of course, the rest of the Fab Five had something to say.

They all jumped into the comments to congratulate Tan on his big news.

Antoni reminded Tan that he's an American now...
