Cool Dad Job: Queer Eye Culture Guy, Social Worker
Cool Dad Vibe: Gets It
Cool Dad Bona Fides: As anyone who has caught an episode of Netflix’s Queer Eye reboot knows, Brown, a 37-year-old Florida native, exudes a preternatural paternal vibe. He’s not here for your bullshit, Ari. But he is here to hold you, Tom, and to find common ground with you, Cory. It should come as no surprise that Brown is, IRL, a wonderful dad too. In 2007, after belatedly finding out that he had a ten-year-old son with a high school girlfriend, Brown adopted both his son Jason, and his son’s half-brother, Christian. Now the boys are men. Jason is 21; Christian is 18. And both, according to a recent interview, aver their dad is just as genuine off-screen as he is on it. “My dad is literally the most supportive person I could probably have in my corner,” says Jason.
