Frank reflected and shared on his IG that shopping when he was growing up always presented some unique challenges. “The ‘husky’ section was always very limited and thrown in the back of the store because quite frankly, nobody cared about the select few little, fat boys that needed clothes to go back to school, or at least that’s how I felt,” he stated in a post.
He added that he felt like he grew up being told his body “wasn’t good enough,” and said it frustrated him to this day many companies still don’t offer larger sizes. But he added that he’s hopeful things will continue to change.
In the meantime, “I’ll continue to find creative ways to make sure that my individual fashion moments as a fat, black boy are expressive, memorable, unapologetic, and iconic,” he announced. “I refuse to let my story in this body be told any differently!”
