Early life

Brown was born Keith Glen Schubert on September 15, 1980 in Corpus Christi, Texas.[1][2] He first started dressing in drag during high school, in theatre productions of Grease as Cha Cha and Into the Woods as the Evil Stepmother.[2][3] Schubert has been openly gay since high school.[4]


Tammie Brown appeared on The Surreal Life with Tammy Faye Messner. Out of drag, Schubert has appeared on How Clean Is Your House? and acted in commercials for McDonald's and UPS.[2] Brown also performed in the Los Angeles Auditions of season 2 of America's Got Talent.

Following his elimination from the first season of RuPaul's Drag Race, Brown released his debut EP Popcorn on March 18, 2009.[5]

In 2012, Brown was featured in an Armen Ra, Candis Cayne, and Miss Fame.[7]

Tammie Brown was amongst 12 past contestants who were brought back for RuPaul's All Stars Drag Race. Brown was paired with first season castmate Nina Flowers to form Team Brown Flowers and was eliminated in the second episode "RuPaul's Gaff-In."[8] "Responsitrannity," the runway theme song for All Stars, was inspired by RuPaul's first season fight with Tammie Brown.[9] Brown, along with All Stars contestants Manila Luzon, Raven, and Latrice Royale, appeared in a television commercial for travel website Orbitz's new portal for LGBT leisure travel.[10]

Brown is a member of the band the Rollz Royces with Kelly Mantle and Michael Catti.[11] Mantle and Catti have appeared in Tammie Brown's Christmas show Holiday Sparkle at Fubar in West Hollywood, California.[12]


Tammie Brown has described his style as bohemian. He cites the movies What's Love Got To Do With It? and Tootsie as major inspirations for his drag.[4]

Personal life

Tammie Brown frequently volunteers at the Long Beach Gay and Lesbian Center. In 2011, Brown and fellow RuPaul's Drag Race castmate Ongina were honorary trail guides for the Saddle Up LA AIDS Benefit Trail Ride.[4]
