Live at IUP: Karamo BrownWhat do toxic masculinity, anxiety, differences of beliefs and opinions, racism, intersectionality, gun violence, substance abuse, and Queer Eye have in common? They’re all topics that will be explored with a very special guest on Thursday, September 19!

Join STATIC as we present Live from Netflix’s Queer Eye: An Evening with Karamo Brown, live in Fisher Auditorium, on Thursday, September 19th.

This is a free event, but you must obtain a ticket for the event from the KCAC Box Office, from the STATIC office, or from STATIC staff upon entry to Fisher. Doors for the event will open at 7:00 p.m. and the show will begin at 8:00 p.m. Karamo will stay for a meet-and-greet with the audience after the event concludes.

According to his official bio, “three-time Emmy Winner and Culture Expert on the Netflix reboot of 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. Lauded for his ease and natural comfort in relating to different types of people, Karamo 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 the internal and external issues holding them back.  Onstage, Karamo draws from his work as a social worker 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, a single father, or former social worker; Karamo strategically utilizes the strengths of his numerous identities to achieve success – and teaches others to do the same. Beyond Queer Eye, Karamo has launched and published a number of works, including his memoir, “Karamo: My Story of Embracing Purpose, Healing, and Hope,” a forthcoming children’s book, “I Am Perfectly Designed,” and his podcast, “Karamo.” Karamo was the recipient of the 2018 Human Rights Campaign Visibility Award. He was also invited by the Obama Administration to work with the White House to create policy and legislation supporting LGBTQ youth and their allies after school hours. Since then he has personally worked with President Barack Obama to support the president Obama Foundation and the My Brother’s Keeper Alliance.  Karamo is an active member of the Never Again MSD gun-control movement after his Florida high school, Stoneman Douglas, suffered a fatal shooting in 2018. A graduate of Florida A&M University, Karamo worked as a licensed social worker for over a decade before transitioning into media.”

This event is completely free, but you must obtain a ticket for the event from the KCAC Box Office, from the STATIC office, or from STATIC staff upon entry to Fisher.
