Harrie Farrow grew up in the Virgin Islands and graduated summa cum laude from San Francisco State with a BA in Psychology and a minor in Human Sexual Studies. A brief career in freelance writing in the Virgin Islands was followed by a move to the Ozarks, where she opened and operated a fine dining restaurant for 18 years.
She became an investigative reporter after retiring from the restaurant business, but four slashed tires convinced her to quit that line of work and instead focus on publishing her bisexual themed novel, “Love, Sex, and Understanding the Universe.”
Farrow has written a monthly bisexual column for The Gayly; written articles for Bi Women Quarterly, including a piece entitled “Solutions for Bisexual Mental Health Issues;” and was the exclusive writer on bisexual topics for the online LGBT news and entertainment site, Hornet, and wrote for the Bisexual Institute of America’s blog, and BiNet USA’s blog.
Also, in 2016, Farrow was a nominated Change Maker to the White House Summit on the State of Women, and in conjunction, attended the Federal Justice Department’s symposium on violence against women. She was selected also that year to participate in the White House’s convening on Advancing Progress for Rural LGBT peoples. In 2016 as well, Farrow gave a workshop at the Bisexual Empowering Conference (BECAUSE) on bisexual specific mental health issues. Later that year, Farrow was given a scholarship to take part in Arkansas HRC’s LGBT competency training for medical and mental heath professionals.
In 2017 Farrow got involved in resistance work, and became an Indivisible leader in her area. Working with the Center for Popular Democracy and other National advocacy/activism organizations, she participated in more than a dozen actions in Washington D.C including being arrested 9 times in civil disobedience actions, such as during the Kavanaugh hearing and the Senate vote on the GOP Tax bill.
In 2018 Farrow was elected as Justice of the Peace in Carroll Country Arkansas, and is running for a second term.
She is working on completing her second novel, “Finding Bonita.”
