Queer Eye culture expert Karamo Brown will give a talk, "Know Thyself: Using Your Uniqueness to Create Success," on Wed., Dec. 5, at 7 p.m at Evanston Township High School Auditorium, 1600 Dodge Ave., Evanston.
Brown began his television career in 2004 as a housemate on the MTV reality series The Real World, becoming the first openly-gay African-American on reality television. In 2014, he joined the Oprah Winfrey Network to host and produce its first digital show, #OWNShow. Brown then became a host and producer for HuffPost Live, and a recurring guest host of Access Hollywood Live.
He then joined the "Fab Five" cast of Netflix's 2018 reboot of Queer Eye, a makeover series set in Atlanta that won three Emmy awards this year, including Outstanding Structured Reality Program.
The event is sponsored by Family Action Network ( FAN ), in partnership with Counseling Center of the North Shore, Countryside Day School, Fusion Academy, New Trier High School D203, the New Trier Parents' Association and The Family Institute at Northwestern University.
