The Shorty Interview with Frank Lowe

Who do you admire most for his or her use of Twitter?

My favorite would have to be my shero, @JennyJohnsonHi5. She is unflinching and forced Chris Brown to shut down his account for a few days.

Who do you wish had a Twitter feed but doesn't?

Parker Posey. I literally imagine what she would tweet, and it's beyond. Where are you, girl?

What will the world be like 10 years from now?

Technology-based. Smaller. Picking up the phone will seem antiquated. Every child will be born with an Apple ID.

Why'd you start tweeting?

To convey that gay parenting is really just parenting, there's no difference. To inspire gay youth, and make fun of my favorite celebrities.

Learn More about Frank Lowe


I'm 36 years old and have been with my spouse for over 15 years (legally married for over 4). We adopted our son, Briggs when he was a baby - his birthmother chose us and we watched him be delivered. I am a stay-at-home dad and family is my life. We moved to rural Connecticut 5 years ago from Chicago, where I worked at stores such as Gucci and Louis Vuitton. I want to send a message to gay youth that it truly does get better, and hope to inspire a new generation.
