Queer Eye' Season 6: Where is Jamie Wallace Grenier now? Inside the Safe in Austin's new barn
For Jamie Wallace Grenier, her calling is truly one that helps make the world a better place. Featured on 'Queer Eye' Season 6, under the episode titled 'Snow White of Central Texas', Jamie works at the Safe in Austin Rescue Ranch that helps rescue animals. Here, differently-abled kids can come and spend time with these rescue animals that help them immensely.
However, this work is no cakewalk, and it often means that Jamie has little to no time for herself. Enter Tan France, Karamo Brown, Antoni Porowski, Jonathan Van Ness and Bobby Berk who hope to help Jamie in her mission to make the world a better place for the animals and kids she helps.

A mother of three teenagers, Jamie's journey began when she realised that her youngest son, Jackson had autism. She brought home a dog named Angel and stated that the dog helped him emotionally in ways that she could not. She then realised just how important this bond was and continued to rescue more animals. However, keeping over 170 plus of her rescue animals is not easy without a barn.
What did the Fab Five do for Jamie?
For the Fab Five, it was essential to have Jamie reconnect with herself and just take some time out to relax. With each of them using their expertise to help her put her hair down for a while, it was comforting to see this selfless woman take some time out for herself. The main project was certainly the barn that was being built for Safe in Austin, so that the animals had a more permanent shelter
Where is Jamie now?
Jamie continues to do the good work that she's been doing and has certainly been putting the barn to good use. She took to Instagram to talk about the same.
"Sitting up here in the new office and looking down onto what will most definitely be the first of countless lock-ins and feeling such gratitude!
Oh how hard we have worked. And just look at this beautiful space! First the absolutely beautiful barn that @queereye built us, and then this incredible addition you all helped us build.Looking down on those faces and my heart could literally burst. Every single one of them have a story. Some of them joyful and some of them harder and heavier then any one heart should carry. All of them surrounded and snuggling with animals and people that understand." she wrote.
"An appropriate song playing projected on the barn door…
“It’s all an adventure that comes with a breathtaking view” ❤️
Thank you for being on this journey with me my friends!
My world is often very hard and scary and sad…. But sometimes.
Sometimes there are these moments,
moments like this one right here that touch my heart in a way I’m not sure most people get to experience.
It’s an honor to do hard and important things along side you. Changing the world one life at a time.
(Normally this is where I say good night rescue family, but these guys are not going home till after morning feeding tomorrow so…. Wish us luck!! 😜)" she added.
In a follow-up post, she did mention that the barn "needs a lift to accommodate for the special needs children that come to visit" as well as "adequate plumbing, electricity or gutters", all which is dependant on donations.
'Queer Eye' Season 6 premieres on December 31st, 2021, on Netflix.
