On Wednesday night, a capacity crowd filled the SAC Ballroom to hear Queer Eye star Karamo speak about the intersectionality of the LGBTQ+ community and black masculinity.
Karamo also discussed how to navigate people projecting their fear onto others, how comparison is “the thief of joy” and how challenging it is for people to identify boundaries.
“We should teach boundaries more,” he said. “It’s so important that we listen to each other and hear what other people say about their boundaries.”
Additionally, Karamo reminded the crowd that we should be able to talk about mental health as easily as we do physical health.
“Speak truth and be kind,” he said.
As one student shared on her Facebook page, the discussion was a “good reminder of self love and acceptance for all.”
The event was hosted by UofL’s Student Activities Board in collaboration with The LGBT Center and Black Student Union. Photos from the event are online here.
