Brown was born Keith Glen Schubert in 1980 in Corpus Christi, TX. He first started doing drag in high school, in theater productions of Grease as Cha Cha and Into the Woods as the Evil Stepmother.
Brown appeared on The Surreal Life with Tammy Faye Messner.
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.
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.
