Carson Kressley Joins The Friend Movement And Shares His Bullying Story (VIDEO)

It's been 10 years since "Queer Eye for the Straight Guy" made its debut on Bravo, and while the show may have become the butt of some jokes over the years, the premise was pretty progressive for the time. And since the show ended, the hosts have gone on to have careers that have expanded far past the flagship series.

One of the Fab Five, Carson Kressley, went on to launch a clothing line, write a children's book and became a staple on daytime talk show makeover segments. Most recently he joined The Friend Movement, a campaign which enlists celebrities and well-known figures to lend their voice to fight bullying by telling their own stories.

The campaign even traveled cross-country this past summer photographing people giving bullying the bird for the "New F Word" campaign.
