Karamo Brown      

Television Host & Culture Expert on Netflix's "Queer Eye"

The Emmy nominated host and Culture Expert on Netflix’s international hit series Queer Eye, Karamo Brown is a ‘sympathetic talk therapist wrapped inside a life coach and zipped into a fast fashion bomber jacket…” according to The New Yorker. A lifelong dream and achievement, Brown is launching his daytime talk show, The Karamo Show, in Fall 2022 produced by NBC Syndication. The show will tape in Stamford, CT and will premiere in more than 90% of country.

Lauded for his ease and natural comfort in relating to different types of people, Brown is tasked with making-over the hearts and minds of the individuals they help on the show; by helping them to confront and grow beyond internal and external issues. Brown draws from his work in social services to show how he both discovered and learned to explore his many different “identities”. Whether as a black man, openly gay man, a son of immigrant parents, a Christian or a single father; Brown strategically utilizes the strength of his numerous identities to achieve success – and teaches others to do the same.

As an actor Brown will recur on Netflix’s final season of the hit dramedy series Dear White People. He starred in Freeform’s first gay rom-com The Thing About Harry and guest stars in the upcoming third season of TBS’ Miracle Workers.

Available through Luminary, Brown’s Podcast, Karamo, is an in-depth look at life’s thorniest issues where everyday people from around the world can call in and chat with Brown to receive advice or share their personal feelings on the situations affecting their lives. The show also includes special interviews with Brown’s celebrity friends who share personal moments from their lives with Brown.

His memoir, Karamo: My Story of Embracing Purpose, Healing, and Hope, explores how the challenges in his own life have allowed him to forever transform the lives of those in need. His best-selling children’s book, I Am Perfectly Designed, is an empowering mantra for kids and adults to embrace authenticity. The beautifully illustrated book is co-authored with his son, Jason ‘Rachel’ Brown.

In 2004 Brown was the first openly gay African-American in the history of reality television’s iconic series The Real World. Shortly after the conclusion of The Real World, Brown learned that he was a father of a nine-year-old boy, Jason. With the support of his child’s mother, Brown petitioned and gained full custody of his son. A year later, Brown adopted Jason’s half-brother, Christian.

Brown was the recipient of the 2018 Human Rights Campaign Visibility Award. Brown continues to work directly with President Obama and his My Brother’s Keeper Alliance empowering today’s youth. He also meets with members of congress on policy and legislation supporting LGBTQ youth and their allies on both sides of the aisle.
