Netflix’s new show Twentysomethings: Austin arrived in 2021 and it’s all about a group of young people living in the same house, some seeking love while others escaping their parents’ houses. But among them, Keauno Perez has a different motivation. He was looking for a place where he can be his “authentic self,” and explore his queer identity.
This Keauno Perez Bio explores everything you need to know about him.
Keauno Perez On Twentysomethings: Austin
Keauno Perez joined the Twentysomethings: Austin house located in Austin, Texas for its inaugural season, to find himself. “I’m coming to Austin because Austin is different. I’m able to be my authentic self,” he shared.
Promoting his appearance on the show, Keauno took it to his IG on November 16, 2021, with a long paragraph a part of which wrote, “I don’t think most people have a trailer for their coming out but if you know me, then you shouldn’t be surprised (Keke is always extra).”
Also, a day before Twentysomethings: Austin hit the screen, Keauno promoted the show, writing, “Y’ALL! TOMORROW!? See me take the first steps at the start of my journey as living my authentic self. I might (poop emoji)my pants!”
Keauno Perez Age
Keauno Perez was 28 years of age when he joined Twentysomethings: Austin in 2021.
He was the oldest contestant in the house that season.
Does Keauno Perez Have A Partner?
Keauno Perez joined Twentysomethings: Austin to explore his sexuality. So, it was pretty obvious that he didn’t have a partner then. Maybe, further in the show, as Keauno figures himself out, we’ll finally get to meet his heart-desired date.
Also, the trailer revealed that Keauno was going to have his first kiss with a guy on the show. Could that be his next boyfriend? The only way to find out is to keep watching.
For those of you wondering, yes! Keauno had never kissed a “guy” before joining Twentysomethings: Austin. But that didn’t imply that he never kissed anyone before.
Then again, he once wrote in 2013, “All my friends are dating or coupling up and then there is Keauno… Oh well, I’m the funniest best friend I’ve ever had!!”
Keauno was 25 when he first came out as gay. He shared that he struggled to accept himself his whole life due to his conservative surroundings and Catholic upbringing.
And by “conservative surroundings,” he referred to the state of Arkansas. Thus, he decided on moving to the very LGBTQ+-friendly community in Austin, and also hoped to find his “gay sensei.”
