Straw hut media. Last month the advocate dubbed him the new gay King of media. He's making his silver screen debut next year in a movie with Seth Rogan. His wildly popular youtube channel has more than seven hundred thousand subscribers and earned him a regular spot on the Ellen degenerous show. Plus, his beyonce impression is fire. Thanks to his charisma, his hilarious commentary and his authenticity, Calyn Allen is quickly rising to the top. Today we'll talk to Klyn about his relationship with Ellen, his plans for the future, advice for Young Queer people of Color, and will even do a live Calyn reacts right here on the show. I'm leavi chambers and this is pride. Could you please introduce yourself? Yes, hi, my name is Kalyn Allen and I'm a talent correspondent at the Ellen degenera show. It all started in two thousand and seventeen with a cooking video he saw on facebook. He recorded himself reacting to the video for his friends and when he woke up the next day the video had gone viral. He started a Youtube Channel called Klein reacts. meet a few more videos and his fan base kept growing. The next thing he knew, Ellen degeneres played one of his videos on TV and invited him to be a guest on her show. Hey klen hello, okay, so tell me how this started. Is it like, are you like a huge cooking fan, or what made you start watching them and then critiquing them? Okay, so the way that the first video started. So I was literally like all my way to work and so I sat there and I was scrolling to my facebook feed and I was like, oh, this videos kind of funny and now watching I was like, you know what, I should make a reaction video and post it for my friends. So I'll put me a little phone up and I press play and I pressed the core. I edit it, you know, published it, and then when I went to sleep the night, it had maybe like twenty likes on it. Then I woke up the next morning had like six thousand followers on my twitter. Now, listen, I'm a little boy from Kis it, so that don't happen all the time. So that was iconic for me. So I came here, we filmed my first episode and I talked about the videos or whatever. Then at the end of the video, she offered me a job. Well, first of all, I think you're hilarious and when I saw that video, I said I want to meet this guy. And then the more we thought about it and we started talking about it, we want to make a deal with you so you actually have a platform and help you make these these videos, and so we want you to help it, help put these things out, playing with me and so, which I wasn't expecting, and I was the job was off and I was like absolutely, of course I would take this job. A month later he moved to La and even though he had to leave his school, Temple University, he continued going to classes in the evening through the university's study away program the other thing you want to make sure you have ready is your oil. Your oil should be set at three hundred and fifty two best correct. Remember, we're going to start with seasoning our chicken. Some season that we're going to dredge your chicken. I also want to make sure that. So how much of the character that people see is you? It seems like it's you. Yeah, it definitely is. I think as it may be more of like a heightened version of who I am, but I've there's definitely a piece of me. I think the most surprising thing about me, I think when I'm at home and in the comfort of my own house, I'm just very to myself and very quiet. I'm an only child, so like I'm used to just entertaining myself. But I mean the way that I talk to you know, cameras and videos is like that's what you...

...get with me in person. I know I go to like concerts and stuff and we'll be talking. Ever, body's always like, oh, it's like having Calyn react live, you know, because he is yeah, like yeah, because I'm just talking. It's been almost two years since Calyn first appeared on the Yellen show. Now with his regular segment on Ellen, oh M Kaylyn, his career is ex loading. I wanted to know what is it that makes Calan so magnetic? Actually, you know, usually I don't know the answer that question, but I think I do this time. I think, for instance, when I visited Los Angeles the first time when I was like a kid, I didn't like it because I felt like there was you were either really rich or really poor and there was no middle class. And I think why people tend to like what I do is because I don't try to be famous and regular all at the same time. It's very like just in between. It's like, yes, I can go walk a red carpet, but I can also lay in my bed in my de rag and I, you know, my robe and talk about food, like I really don't care that much, and I think that's what people appreciate the most, is the authenticity and, you know, me just being as genuine as possible. Yeah, because it's real. Yeah, they really yeah, and I'm not the type of like I don't care about the followers and views and stuff like that, like that's something that I very rarely check. It's just like I just care about making good content. Klan grew up in Kansas City, Kansas. In case you're wondering why there's a Kansas City in Kansas and a Kansas City in Missouri, here's a quick explanation. The city was named for the Kansas River, which was named for the indigenous Kansa people. The Kansas River meets the Missouri River in Kansas City, right on the border of the two states. The Missouri Kansas City was first and it's bigger, but the Kansas Kansas City actually has the Kansas River. So that's it. Now you know why there are two Kansas cities. Even if you know basically nothing about Kansas, you probably know that it isn't the most LGBTQ pus friendly community. Still, Kiln said that growing up he didn't really notice it. I think I was always just so tunnel vision and also just like kiln, is who he is, you know. I mean, did I experience homophobia? Yes, but I feel like that homophobia can be experienced anywhere. I don't think it was until I went home recently that I realized the difference, because I I dressed like I usually dressed like here, which is usually all hits to like dressed up, and so I went home and people stared at me, you know, and it was different. It was weird. It was probably the first time where home didn't feel like home, you know, like I wasn't walking around like because people in Kn city all they were is chiefs and royals Apparell it's like they don't have nothing else in the closet, you know, and so I was a little taken aback by that. And I think after you leave a place you start to realize just how conservative and close minded and things that they just experienced differently. You know, have you experienced people who have changed because you are now famous? I would have to say no, and the reason why I say no is that I've always kept my circle very tight, very very tight. I mean I can probably count on one hand the close friends that I have from as a city. So when I would go home now it's like I don't even notice if anybody treats me different. I will say there's probably some people that used to not be very nice to me that now all of a sudden want to be nice, you know, but I really don't pay them any minor give them any time of the day, you know, because it's like, honey, there's nothing that we have here, you know, like it's too late, it's be like baby, okay, right. It's been just over a year since Calyn came out publicly when he signed an Instagram Post. Sincerely yours a proud gay black man from...

Kansas. I was going to Salt Lake City and Utah and I was going to speak at a youth summit and I was just like, I cannot go in try and motivate these kids until these kids how wonderful it is to you know, be themselves if I'm not doing that within my own life. I don't think it was ever anything that people didn't know, but it was something that I hadn't said out loud. So I made an instagram post and I posted it on the plane and then that was how I came out about it to everyone and honestly, was the scariest thing that I've ever done. Really. Yeah, that was the scariest thing. Yes, it was the scariest thing. I was this your Post Ellen appearance. Huh, yeah, I know, right, and I well, this is the reason why I think it was so scary for me is because I remember when I first started college, there used to be people that would tell me that I wasn't going to have a career because I was gay, you know, and I think even though I felt I maybe if I didn't say it, then it wasn't like taboo. I mean, look at Ellen. It's like she did her series and then she said it and lost it all, you know, and I think even though we've come a long time from then, I think it's still a very touchy and scary so, especially when your African American, you know, and I think that was another scary thing for me is that I was, like a lot of people like to live and delusion, you know, and I was like, if I say this, I am afraid that one people may not already like me because I'm black, and now I've just given them one other thing to not like me for as well. Kilan says his family's reactions were overall positive. The only family member that had a hard time with it was his mom. I think she was mostly taken aback with the fact that because I didn't tell her that I was going to do it, like I never prepped anybody, you know, I just did it and I think it was just a lot for her to handle. So at first it was just very rough for us to figure out that new space of me being out and what that meant, you know, especially with from being from Kansas City. It's not something that I necessarily, you know, blame her for. I just understand that people can only understand and work within things that they have experienced or being a exposed to, and she's never left Kansas, you know, and I mean she's Midwest. You know. That's just point blank period. You know. How did she take it then when the advocate profiled you and they called you the new gay King of media. I don't know if she's even seen it. She hasn't seen it. I don't know. I don't know. I'm not the type of person that's like, oh my Gosh, look at this article. Here it is. You know, I'm not that type of person. I usually like just look at it and just be like Oh, that's cute. It cap officially. You know, that's kind of a big deal, though. Yes, it. You know, I loved that article. Usually, when I've done interviews, people do try to like treat me as if like I was just like a one hit wonder, you know. I like they're always like it feels more like like they're just trying to build a quota. You know. It's just like yeah, we're just doing this interview to do it, you know. But I loved that article specifically because it was so I felt like it inmbidied everything that I was and what I wanted, you know, and what I dreamed of, you know, and for them to give me that title also was kind of like you're believing in me before you've even seen all that I can do. Kind of like what I say about Ellen, you know, like she went based off of three videos and it gave me a job. You know. Yeah, I mean your videos are really good. No, thank you. They were good before Ellen, they're good now. Thank you. So do you embrace that title the Gay King of Media? Um, wow, I don't know. That's a hard question. I mean, okay, this is...

...what I'll say. Someone I remember when the article when I posted Arco, someone was like, Oh, I hate when they put labels on it and, you know, try to box people in, but I felt like it was necessary to say gay king media, especially as a black man. I felt that that was very necessary, I think, because a lot of times, I know we get hung up on labels, but I think sometimes it necessary. Like I think about the people that, you know, died during the a's epidemic and stuff like that. They had dreams like this, that wanted to be on TV, that wanted to be host off. They didn't get those opportunities because of who they were, you know, and so for me it's important for that to be there, because it's like I am living out the dreams of my ancestors. I am trying to accomplish everything that they didn't get to do. Why? You're doing that. Well, thank you when we come back Kilan's upcoming movie with Seth Rogan and what it's like being friends with the One and only ellen. Next year Kilan has a movie coming out. It's called an American pickle and it ours Seth Rogan. Moving into acting made a lot of sense to Kaylan, even if it's surprised some of his fans. I think the biggest misconception was that the only thing that I could do was talk about food, when in fact I've been over fifty musicals in place. So like being an actor was second nature to me, and that's why I said in Africa's like when I got my script, I showed up to set with my lines, memorize, and that's why I'm I think I'm also so good at like being a host at things or memorized lines, because I barely like if you watch any of my things, I mean if you even watch ellen on the show, she uses blue cards and she looks at it. If you watch me doing anything, I don't have blue card. I usually like look at it, memorize it, do it. I just can learn like that. Also did speech and debate growing up, so like I did forensic so I was always acting like it was second nature. And so when I showed up, I had to make sure that I wasn't intimidated because it was my first time doing film. So I to make sure I wasn't intimidated by like professional actors, but I had to walk into the spaces if I knew what I was doing, you know, because I think people can feel a lack of content confidence and they can feel fear, you know, and if I walked in there like there, then they would treat me like that, you know. So I had to make sure that I marched in there and was like I am more than somebody did. That just makes funny videos on social media. You know, I am trained, I have a degree in this and I know what I'm doing. So can you tell us anything else about your characters, your care after straight, as your character gay? My character is gay, but we don't even like really mention it in the in the movie. It's like not even relevant to the story, which is another thing that I love. I think it's amazing to finally have gay characters that aren't is the whole entire plot line. Isn't about them being gay, you know, they're just regular people like Hetero sexual people. Have Been in every single movie. You know, they just who they are. You have described Ellen as a mentor and you have a nickname for her, Mama E. Okay, tell us about that. Yes, yes, yeah, so I call Ellen Mama E, like just that's just the name that I came up with. But honestly, yes, she's a mentor. I think my favorite moments with Ellen or all screen. You know, I remember when we were at Gorilla Palooza and I would which was her firm raiser for her Ellen Fund, and we were up in the front and Bruno Marsl was performing and I was right next to our ellen honey. We've was just living our best lives, honestly, and it really shocks me the fact that...

I still work with her and I often forget, like who she is because I'm so used to being around her at this point that now she's just like a normal person to me. I would say that we are, we're definitely we're friends, you know, but honestly, there's a there's a support system that we both have, you know, towards each other, I think, especially with the way that she believes in me. I remember my second appearance on the show, maybe more like my third and I was the guest Dj and she came over to me and she was just like anything you want to do, just do it, let us know, we'll do it, we'll make it happen, you know. And I think she just she has this belief in me that I don't even think I ever have for myself, and that alone motivates me to, you know, just continue to work in I tell people all the times, like everything that I do is just I'm just trying to make her proud, like I don't want her investment in me to go in vain. I don't think it is. Well, thank you. What do you feel like is the most important thing you've learned from Mama e? Authenticity is always the key. I think the most beautiful thing about Ellen and what she does is that who you see on TV is who exactly who you get off screen. I think that is the most beautiful thing and I think it is taught me to just always stick to who I am and not try to change or put on a show for other people and with their comfortability is you know, I think Ellen always just persists herself as she is, unapologetically and I almost authentic way. So with then I guess you'd say like within the entertainment industry, there are a lot of rumors that Ellen's really hard to work with, she's really difficult. Wow, what do you do? You agree with those no, and I I'm glad you asked me that question because it actually pisses me off every time I see it and because I feel like the only reason why people say that is because she's a woman. I don't think there is anything wrong with someone, especially of her success, to know what she wants and how she wants it done and to not waiver or turn down anything just to make other people comfortable. You know, I don't. I don't believe in that. I think me and ellen kind of work the same way. You know I don't do anything HALFASS. You either going to do it all the way and we're going to put everything that we have into it, or we just not going to do it at all. You know I'm not the type of person if I have a call time at eight am or in and say we're supposed to wrap at five, if we haven't finished what we was supposed to do or it's not done, then I will stay to make sure that it gets done correctly. I am willing to put in that work. You know, I think she is a woman that is that knows. So she does and she knows how to do it well, she knows what it takes to make sure that it is happened very well. I mean you never hear those kind of stories about me and you never hear those critiques about me, and you know, I think it is solely based on the fact that she's a woman. So the rumors are bullshit. I yes, in my perspective they are. You know, it's been over a year since Calyn became a regular on Ellen and with the massive popularity of her show, plus his own mounting stardom, he's even being recognized on the street. Yeah, now I do, depends, especially depending on where I'm going. Not It's not so much in La just because, you know, we're so desensitized to it all, but like when I go out of town, or even in the airport, because also we play my videos in airports. Okay. So Yeah, Ellen to has a deal with airports and so while we're all people are waiting for their flights, is me all on the screens and stuff which I have yet to see. People send me videos all the time then watching me and I'm like in an airport. I'm like, where am I looking around all excited. I wish I could see myself. I would love it, but no, I get recognized the lie and I love it. I think that's the only time that I get to interact with with...

...people. So you have a lot of charisma. So it's obvious why people gravitate towards you, and Ellen gravitated towards you. Do you think there are things that she's learned from you, even though she is a huge television icon? One thing that I think that I make sure to do is that I never treat her like the Ellen de Generous, if that makes sense, is that I never speak to her or go around her as if she is this big time celebrity. I treat her like a human being. I think that is very important and I think that's probably what she appreciates the most. Is it? Because it's just like, think about it, if you're a celebrity, you don't want people around you always act to starstruck, you know, because you don't know if you can trust them. You know. I we have very just real candy conversations, like if I saw her on the street. You know, it's like I'll be like hey, how you doing? All what you do this weekend? You know, easy talk. I think that is probably the biggest thing that she's probably learned from me. It's just that everybody doesn't always want something from her, you know, and it's like, yes, she gave me something, but that was on her own account. It's not like I asked her for it, you know, and it's just like we can just enjoy each other's space and coexist without feeling like we need to give and take all the time. And you are giving her a lot. Yeah, your creativity, your Chrisma. Yeah, and I mean and I get to pitch things for the show and stuff like that. I think I bring a lot of spice to the show, you know, the feed into the food stuff. I'm the seasoning, you know. So, I mean I'm very surprised at the things I like. I've even been asked to do, you know, like performing as beyonce on the show. Like I was very surprised to get that request, but when it was asked, I said, okay, let's do it. You know our next guest from his hilarious reactions to food videos or his digital series Om Kalen and honor of Halloween, he is here to perform as one of his favorite people in the world, beyonce Alabama. With that, they know that I'm always willing to do the craziest things, and so the pitch always comes to me. I did pitch actually the hunt the houses. Yeah, I pitched for me to go into the hunt of house, because universal, a universal yes, those haunted houses are no joke. They aren't. And I don't not like haunted houses. And it's funny because people in the comments always think like I'm faking, but like I'm always like no, honey, I'm just dramatic, like I don't like being scared whatsoever. Well, and those are next level, like if you like, Oh, you being dramadic, are you going to go through it? Exactly, like it's not fun. You know what's about. I got sweating my eyes. I went to the haunted hey ride this year. Oh Really, Oh, I got invited today now. I was like no, I would not be there. It's not as bad as so, like we went with friends and they're like this is pretty scary and I'm like you and done universal, like those people are they are bringing it. Yeah, with a lot of money at a lot of scares. Okay, like it is full out. It's actually crazy, like I did this stranger things one and I was just like what is is? I feel like I'm in the movie. Yes, like Ashley popping out. It's crazy. I know when they look really, really they look real. I know they got the butchet to do it. That's why they're so good. Right when we come back, using your power to create meaningful change in the world. Meeting Oprah and also a weird hand shaped meat loaf. When I worked for the advocate and editor named Daniel Reynolds, who's also my friend, created a campaign...

...called six and ten. The name represented the statistic that six in ten gay or by black men will be HIV positive by the time they're forty years old. It's a startling statistic and one that, thanks to drugs like prep, can be improved. I asked how important it was for Kaylyn to have the opportunity to be a source of light to the community. That means the world to me. I think that is my my number one, you know, priority. I think we are starting to move in a new age of media to where it is okay to talk about these things you know, it's not so much taboo anymore. I think my favorite show on TV is pose, you know, because it's like the first time I've ever seen myself in a TV show on TV, you know, and I think it is so important and I am so honored. I know most people were probably like, well, that's a lot of weight on my shoulders, but I willingly take that weight, you know, and I would do everything in my power to make sure that I can live up to the standard, that I can educate people, that I can help them find their true sales, and want to be able to be that in understand that what everyone says that is bad about you or that they don't like about you is usually your power. It really helps you grow intellectually about, you know, HIV and ace, especially when it comes to the stigma surrounding it, or even like dating someone that he his HIV and understanding that if they are undetectable, that means that you won't get the disease, you know, and stuff like that, or knowing about to making prep, which I know recently it was announced that prep would now be available to people, even if they are unensured, you know, and so I think that is very important, but I think I think people that experience different types of hardships growing up and in their life are very special, especially when they are able to take those situations and make the most out of them, even when they feel like all hope is gone and feel like they're at their last you know, but they find a way to keep pushing forward and I think those are the strongest people in the world. What advice do you have for young queer kids, especially queer people of Color, where young? Oh, the other day I was at the Trumpet Awards for Bounds and I was sitting in the audience and Wanda Sykes was the host in Martin Lawrence was being honored and and Cedric, the entertainer, was being honored and they were talking about like people in the past that have done this, like civil rights marches, and I just sat there and I was just like, it is crazy how often we forget the magic that lives inside of us in the fact that we come from people that endured the most crazy things, that the unimaginable, and how they are conquerors and fighters and survivors, and yet we still doubt that we can do the smallest things. And so my advice would be to hold on to that magic and feel that magic and allow yourself to embrace that magic and not be afraid to let that magic shine out. I think a lot of times is that. Like, for instance, my least favorite thing is when people tell me to stay humble, because, even though there is validity in that statement, I often feel like it's a it's an attempt to try and keep me to be small and to make myself feel small, when there's nothing wrong with me patting myself on the back every now and within to say, Kalin, good job, you accomplish this, I'm proud of you, and so that would also be a part of my advice, is to make sure that you pat yourself on the back, don't take everything with a grain of salt, you know, Congratulate Yourself, celebrate yourself and make...

...sure that you are able, in only just fighting, to become better than who you were before, and I think that's kind of how I've always lived my life. I've always lived this like Mottel, in my life of underestimation feels my determination, you know, and it's just like I love when people doubt me and tell me what I can't do, because then I make an admission to make sure that I can show you that I can do this and that I can achieve this and I can continue to break barriers and I will fight and I will work harder than the person next to me to make sure that I achieve those things. And I think what was most important for me and why I came out was for representation of visibility. I wanted to make sure that I was able to open more doors for other people just like me who needed someone to look up to or someone to believe in. That was proof that anything was possible, because I think when you are a part of a marginalized community, people only tell you about your limitations. They don't tell you about your limitless possibilities. When Kailan imagines who the person on the other side of the screen is, he sees a young person who needs a little guidance. It's a I think specifically it's a queer black boy, you know, that's sitting at home watching TV or on Youtube or on Instagram, you know, trying to figure out life, trying to figure out what's next, trying to figure out what their purpose is, what they want to do and in the world. You know, and I don't think it's necessarily for me. It's not like, yes, make a video and have a go viral. You know that's not the case. I think what I want to prove is that you can only achieve by how much you work. You know, like I could have easy always tell the story about how the original job was. I was supposed to just do that for Philadelphia and I made the decision to move to la which then made the job bigger. And it's like, once a door opens, you have to run through it. You just can't step in and just get one day as you have to work for once you have. You have to ask for what you have, and that's what I hope to inspire you know, kids, is that it. You can literally have anything that you want in the world, but you have to be willing to sacrifice everything to have it. What do you want? I think for me, ultimately I just want to live out all my dreams. I think that's that's all that matters to me. I tell people now it's like I am very content with my life and what I have achieved and now I'm just really just going with the flow and just working, because I want to work, you know, and I want to continue to grow and become better than who I was before. You know, I think what makes me happy is being able to say that I left this world with no regrets and that I did everything that I wanted to do. What has been an accomplishment that you're really you're going to do a movie, you have a lot of things going. Is there anything that's really stuck out to you? Is like this is a huge moment in my life? I would have to say a huge moment was meeting Oprah, and because the difference from meeting Oprah and meeting other celebrities is that Oprah genuinely knew who I was and she talked to me about videos that even fans that come up to me don't talk to me about. Like it was just very specific and that meant a lot to me because the way that happens that they just put me in front of her and she just screened my name. She wasn't prepped, nobody told her she was going to meet me, she didn't know, it just happened and it was one of the most just authentic and genuine kind of interactions with someone of her esteem, and I think that was the moment that I finally was just like this is what...

I'm supposed to do. There is purpose in this, there is meaning in this, there is so much work that I am doing that means something to somebody, specifically Oprah Winfrey. Have you had any moments that I don't want to see that we're letdowns, but if you had any moments that weren't what they were supposed to be? I think I'm just a perfectionist and there's always something that I will find something wrong with, you know. But I think for me is that I always just give everything that I have when I do it, which is where I find the contentment and that I'm always like, if I am going to fail, I rather fail knowing that I gave it a hundred percent then wondering what I could or should or would have done differently, because I mean like the beyonce performance in single ladies, like I did dance move like too early and it bothered me and I was like I messed up, you know, like I'm always about stuff like that, you know. So I think it's every moment. I think failure. I know a lot of people say fail your is not an option, but it absolutely is an option, because that's how you learned. That's how you grow, that's how you learn how to not make the same mistakes over and over again. You know. So I love to mess up, I love to be let down, so then I can make sure that if the opportunity comes back around, I am more prepared for so that that doesn't happen again. Did beyonce say anything? Not personally to me, but I know like my birthday tribute to her she posted on her facebook. So that happened. But now I didn't hear from thence a personally regarding the like Halloween performers. But I know that there will come a day when me and beyonce will meet face to face. And I've been in space this with beyonce.
