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.
