Queer Eye star Tan France officially became a U.S. citizen, sharing a glimpse of his social distancing ceremony this week.

And right after swearing allegiance to the United States, the elegant star insisted that he was immediately gone to register to vote – now that he could.

The resident expert on the popular show is from Doncaster, South Yorkshire, but now lives in Salt Lake City, Utah with her husband Rob.

Sharing snippets on social media on Tuesday, Tan was seen taking the oath of allegiance at a naturalization ceremony, with various officials standing far away, wearing face masks.

Next to photos of himself at the ceremony, and alongside Rob, he wrote on Instagram: “A few minutes ago, I officially became an American citizen !! For me, it’s monumental. It’s something I’ve been working on for 20 years, which makes it all the more emotional.

“And now I’m going to exercise my constitutional right as an American. Today I’m going to register to vote and vote for the change I want to see in OUR nation. “

Come on, good thing! (Side note – he may have become a citizen during the lockdown, but this brilliant formal attire is everything we expect from the king of style.)The 37-year-old is a fashion designer by trade and brings his expertise to Queer Eye, featured in the Netflix makeup salon alongside the other members of the Fab Five – Antoni Porowski, Karamo Brown, Bobby Berk and Jonathan Van Ness .

Of course, they jumped in the comments to rib their co-star with Antoni: “I hope you realize you can no longer say things like” you, the Americans still “(sic). “

Sorry Bobby, but the correct pronunciation is not “squrl”.

Karamo shared a sweet message by writing: “Welcome! I love you!’

While grooming guru Jonathan wrote the most beautiful statement: “There is no word or phrase that I have strong enough to say how happy, proud and strong you are, I have no pretty strong words. I love you so much.’

Queer Eye has turned out to be a huge success since its relaunch by Netflix in 2018, and its fifth season arrived on the streaming service last week.
