Karamo Brown on Finding Self-Love, Living Out Loud & Unlocking Your Authentic Self EP 1457

All parts of who you are are powerful

Karamo Brown, the renowned television host, Queer Eye Culture Expert, reality television personality, author, actor, and activist, has had a remarkable journey of personal transformation and advocacy. Overcoming challenges such as colorism, physical and emotional abuse, and addiction, he has become a prominent figure in the LGBTQ+ community.

In his memoir, “Karamo: My Story of Embracing Purpose, Healing, and Hope,” he emphasizes the importance of telling one’s personal story to promote understanding and acceptance. Karamo’s involvement with the Obama Administration in shaping policies for LGBTQ+ youth and communities has shaped his understanding of the impact of policy changes on marginalized groups. As the culture expert on Netflix’s Queer Eye, he has touched the lives of many individuals, helping them embrace their true selves.

Karamo’s advocacy for mental health awareness and support highlights the intersection between mental health, success, and finding one’s true purpose. With his new talk show, “Karamo,” he aims to tackle important issues, particularly concerning the LGBTQ+ community. 

As a proud gay single father, he imparts valuable lessons to his sons. During Pride Month and beyond, Karamo believes that the most important message and action individuals and allies can take is to celebrate and advocate for LGBTQ+ rights. With his multifaceted roles, Karamo continues to balance his various responsibilities while prioritizing self-care and nurturing relationships.
