I'm Dr. Frankie, a psychologist, sex therapist, relationship coach, and CEO of the first Matchmaking Agency exclusively for Lesbian/Bi/Trans/Queer singles in the country.
With over 25,000+ introductions over the last 15 years, I have one of the highest matchmaking success rates in the industry.
My expertise has been featured nationally on NPR, TEDx, and MTV, as well as in publications like Curve, Glamour, and Cosmopolitan.
In 2020 I had the privilege of being the Relationship Expert on MTV’s Historic “Are You The One,” series, featuring the first 100% sexually fluid cast on television.
And now I want to bring my expertise as both a psychologist and lesbian matchmaker to help you find love. With over 15 years of doing this work, I’ve seen that often the first step towards finding your match is finding your community.
If you have the joy of being a part of a great community, if you have people that love and respect you, then when you meet someone special and the relationship grows, it's supported by the community- so you can experience your best selves through the ups and downs.
Self-reliance is a strength. Coming out later in life can often mean long stretches of avoiding dating out of fear of being judged.
Lesbian Culture can be a once in a lifetime support system. And it can sometimes be tricky to navigate or even intimidating if you didn’t come out early, or if you are gender non conforming or bisexual or a transgender woman.
I understand the nuances. I’ve given a lot of thought to creating this space for you to be appreciated, cherished, and celebrated without having to apologize or explain yourself.
I know so many people that you would connect GREAT with. People who GET you. Can you ever have enough good friends?
That’s why I created the Little Gay Book SocialCommunity.
We are thrilled to announce the relaunch of our community! We successfully initiated the community during the pandemic, and now, this list is evolving and expanding on a daily basis. Rest assured, we are only at the beginning of our journey!
We can help you shine and feel a sense of belonging, even if you're shy or nervous around groups. We want to introduce you to wonderful people who will see how fantastic you are.
We know that being a part of our community will help you find absolutely incredible, generous, caring, queer friends that are ready to fully appreciate, support, and love you.
In addition to being connected to like-minded, generous-hearted people from all over the world in a safe online space accessible by any of your devices (and off of Facebook!), there are also drop-in community happy hours, and group sessions with us, where we’ll guide you through laid-back, casual, yet informative and interesting conversations on topics like relationships, love, sex, health, dating, work-life balance, and family dynamics.
We also have monthly activities like our Curated Book Club, Themed Social Events, and Workshops. Everything is optional, come and go as you like, and it’s all included in the membership!

One thing we have all learned from the pandemic, whether we like it or not, is the focus on S L O W I N G D O W N.
If you like dating app culture, and want to be able to do quick left and right swipes to determine your next relationship, then let us save you some time, this is probably not going to be a good fit.
If your idea of getting to know someone is to first look up all the hotties, and then slide into someone’s DMs hoping for a date, without participating in any of the conversations or group events, this community is not going to be for you.
The Little Gay Book Social Community is different than any other dating program that exists because it takes a “Friendship First” approach to dating and relationships.
By actively participating in the group discussion topics, whether it’s sharing your favorite books/movies/podcasts/music, learning a new recipe, being silly, or bonding over current events, it’s amazing how we all get to know each other from a more authentic, no pressure place.
You’ll organically start loving people’s quirks, appreciating how kind someone is, how someone is full of humor, or how another member has interesting life stories and experiences to share.
And whether it’s deep friendships blossoming or exploring flirty moments, there’s a depth and richness in these relationships that can be hard to find. Isn’t that a great place to naturally fall in love?
And there’s absolutely no obligation. You can choose to be a month-to-month member and cancel anytime- with no pressure.
As soon as you join, you’ll receive an email with a link to our community. You'll also have the option to download our community app right to your phone.
Upon joining you'll have an opportunity to share where you live and what makes you happy so that you can quickly and easily be warmly welcomed by the group!
You’ll be able to see member profiles and contributions to be able to immediately start to connect with others through the discussion topics and weekly events. It’s amazing how quickly bonds can form!
Meet people who share your interests, who live near you, (or in cool places you'll want to visit!), who want genuine connections, who care about similar values, or who might even help provide insight into seeing a different perspective.
Foster deep, meaningful, worldwide conversations with quality, queer, successful, like-minded friends in a high-caliber community you can’t find anywhere else.
Our community is generous, respectful, resourceful, professional, and caring- you will fit right in! :)
