Queer Eye star Antoni Porowski has revealed that he met his boyfriend Trace Lehnhoff on Instagram, saying it’s the “2019 way.”

Porowski, who is Queer Eye’s food expert, revealed that he met his partner on social media during an appearance on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen. He also said that he and Lehnhoff have been seeing each other since last summer.



During a segment in which viewers call in and ask questions, Porowski was asked what the first meal he cooked for Lehnhoff was.

“Actually, I know exactly what it was. It was a pappardelle with crumbled sausage and white wine parsley lemon zest sauce.”

Antoni Porowski said he would pick Tan France to direct him in an erotic photoshoot

During the appearance on Andy Cohen’s show, Porowski also played a game where he had to hypothetically select his Queer Eye co-stars for a variety of situations.

He revealed that—if he had to choose—he would pick Tan France to direct him in an erotic photoshoot, saying: “He knows my angles.”

He said he would pick Jonathan Van Ness as his wingman if he was still single, and if he had to pick one of the Fab Five to borrow money from, he would pick Bobby Berk.

Porowski confirmed that he was in a relationship with Trace Lehnhoff last December when he posted a photo to Instagram of them holding hands.
