'Queer Eye' Star Karamo Brown Scores Huge Gig For Himself!

2018 keeps getting better and better for Queer Eye star Karamo Brown!  

Outside of the show, he has conquered many avenues in entertainment, such as his illustrious career on television and more (check out our exclusive with him here).

Now, he will be tackling the world of modeling, as he announced earlier today that he signed with one of most prestigious modeling agencies in the world: Wilhelmina!

'He's a model! Yay!' paired with "I just signed with @wilhelminamodels" was one of his instagram stories about the exciting news.  He posted it sitting in their office in front of the big Wilhelmina sign.

He also posted a heartfelt video where he shared the good news again, surrounded by several Wilhelmina employees.   "I was literally crying before this video," he captioned. "I have been told so many times that my skin was to dark, nose to big or that I just wasn’t good enough. And I never stopped believing in myself. And today this happened! I guess all those moments in my moms living room pretending to be Naomi Campbell have finally payed off."

Congrats to Karamo on the new gig! 

Karamo Brown Makes Powerful Statement About his Interracial Relationship

Karamo Brown has been one of the most talked about people in 2018, thanks to his part on the reboot of Queer Eye on Netflix. 

His passion for the subjects on the show equate to his passion on issues that occur outside of the program, some of which negative and racist comments he's received over the years for not only his skin color, but because of him being in an interracial relationship for the better part of the decade.

Karamo attended the red carpet for the Human Rights Campaign gala over the weekend in Los Angeles, where his plus one was his partner of almost eight years Ian Jordan.  The two looked simply dashing in the photo he posted on his Instagram, with Karamo showing a pop of color in red and Ian looking very handsome in white.

The caption for the photo, however, took more of a serious tone as he explained the problems the two of them had to face over the years regarding people's disapproval of them being in an interracial relationship and how they both remain positive throughout it all.

"With my partner of 7 (almost 8) yrs at the @humanrightscampaign Gala," Karamo captioned.  "Over the years We’ve received so many racist comments from people who disapprove of us being in an interracial relationship. But ignorance will never win when love and kindness are leading the way. Wishing everyone the same happiness and joy that we have! #Love." 

The photo, which has almost 40,000 likes, has generated a ton of positive feedback from his followers, with one saying "Love is Love, no matter who you are, and love & kindness will always be more powerful than hate. You two make a beautiful couple, and I wish you many more wonderful years ahead.
