Known for his impeccable style, influencer and model FrankNTheCity is also a passionate activist who has cemented himself as one of the leading voices in our community.

He is on a mission to change the narrative when it comes to big and tall men and how they are viewed. He’s not afraid to speak on the lack of clothing options available in the industry, body image issues that men face and other important topics.

We especially love his recent #TextYourselfFirst movement on Instagram. He shared with his audience how he started texting himself motivation messages every morning to help inspire himself and speak life into himself. He stresses the importance of pouring into yourself so you have more than enough to share with others because simply, you deserve it. And others followed suit. This is an example of the powerful work FrankNTheCity has done not just within our own community but for all.
