Queer Eye’s Karamo Brown Met Karen Pence & Jonathan Van Ness Was Not Cool With It + Other News



Queer Eye's Karamo Brown went to the White House to meet with Karen Pence's staff. Mike Pence, her husband, is known for his anti-gay politics.

Brown told The Hollywood Reporter that his conversation with  Karen Pence's staff, who told him that she supports everyone having  access to the arts, "gave me a glimmer of hope."

JVN was really not here for it and made jokes you can read at the source.

But Brown argued for the benefits of interacting with powerful people  even if they dislike your identity. "No matter if someone has personal  feelings about my sexuality or how they view me," he said, "it's my job  continue to show up in spaces — and all of our jobs — to continue to  show up in spaces where we can say, 'You know what? I can figure out how  to try to work with you so that we can make sure that we're helping  future generations."

"I'm sorry I made fun of the Pences so  much," Van Ness said, sarcastically addressing the couple. "I'm sure you  guys are, like, super nice."
