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 novel, “Love, Sex, and Understanding the Universe.” She is a board member of BiNet USA and writes, advocates, consults, and speaks about bisexuality. Among other work, she’s written a monthly bisexual column for a regional LGBT print newspaper; 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, Unicorn Booty. Farrow also was the Communications Director for an Art Company. Currently, she writes for the Bisexual Institute of America’s blog, is completing her second novel, and is active in the resistance movement.
In 2015, Farrow gave a workshop at the Bisexual Empowering Conference (BECAUSE) on bisexual specific mental health issues.
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. Also in 2016 Farrow was given a scholarship to take part in Arkansas HRC’s LGBT competency training for medical and mental health professionals. She was selected also in 2016 to participate in the White House’s convening on Advancing Progress for Rural LGBT peoples.
