'Queer Eye' star Jonathan Van Ness celebrates husband getting his green card

It’s official: Jonathan Van Ness’ husband, Mark Peacock, is not going anywhere after receiving word he is now a permanent resident of the United States.

The “Queer Eye” star celebrated the good news on Monday, sharing a photo of him embracing his significant other, who is from London, in front of U.S. Citizen and Immigration Services.

“Yay he’s staying,” Van Ness celebrated, noting the magnitude of the moment. “Today as a queer person who wouldn’t have been able to marry the person they love just 6 years ago, our rights can’t be taken for granted!”

“So happy to have this process in our rearview,” the 34-year-old television personality gushed. “Green Card YAS!”

Van Ness’ friends were quick to offer their congratulatory marks, including “Queer Eye” co-star Tan France, who said, “YAY! Such wonderful news that he now has a green card!!” Bobby Berk also cheered, “Shantay you stay!!!!”
