Jonathan Van Ness is “Getting Curious” about Congress.

The “Queer Eye” alum is seen heading to Capitol Hill to talk with Rep. Ayanna Pressley (D-Mass.) as part of his forthcoming Netflix show.

In a sneak peek for “Getting Curious” released Tuesday by production company World of Wonder, Van Ness says he has been a “big fan” of Pressley since she entered the House in 2019.

“I just love her so much, and I’m just such a gigantic fan, and I want to talk to her about how she made the decisions that she made to live so authentically,” the 34-year-old TV personality says in the clip.

The two discuss hair and the “attention on it” in the preview of the sit-down.

In 2020, Pressley opened up in an interview with The Root about having alopecia — a condition that can cause hair loss — and revealed her bald head publicly for the first time.

In a trailer for Van Ness’s show, premiering Friday, Van Ness says he’s “going to be embarking on a journey of learning more” in each episode.

Pressley’s office didn’t get back to ITK about the congresswoman’s Netflix appearance.
