LAWRENCE, May. – A woman whose experience of being expelled from her home at the age of 16 because she was a lesbian was highlighted in the Netflix show. "Queer Eye" has a new shot at the university after fans have sufficiently picked up her student loans.
The show tells the story of 23-year-old Jess Guilbeaux trying to study herself at the University of Kansas before she goes bankrupt due to debt. It led a supporter to set up a GoFundMe last month, with the goal of raising $ 100,000 to "send Jess back to school!" More than $ 90,000 has been raised so far.
GoFundMe spokesperson Aja Shepherd told The Wichita Eagle reports that Guilbeaux was able to pay off her loans thanks to the generosity of people around the world. The university declined to comment.
