Gabby Frost (she/her) is a 24-year-old artist, mental health advocate, content creator, and public speaker. She is also the founder of Buddy Project – a non-profit movement aiming to prevent suicide by pairing people as buddies and raising awareness for mental health. Through her art brand, GMF Designs, Gabby creates designs that open up dialogue about mental health and help others feel good.
Here is Gabby’s story, written in her own words.
“I’m a mental health advocate and have been since I was 14. I used to run a non-profit called Buddy Project, but recently decided to have it go on indefinite hiatus. I created a lot of Bonfire campaigns through Buddy Project in order to raise funds for mental health facilities in Southeast PA. In 2019, I created GMF Designs and now do all of my mental health advocacy through that platform.
Recently, I’ve been very passionate about reproductive health and rights, as I was diagnosed with Premenstrual Dysphoric Disorder (PMDD) at the end of 2021. When the Roe v Wade news broke last week (referring to the initial Supreme Court draft leak to overturn Roe v Wade on May 2, 2022), I knew I wanted to create some designs and remembered I could sell them on Bonfire.
I really love the 70s aesthetic a lot recently, and thought it went well with the “reproductive rights are human rights” line since Roe v Wade was in 1973.”
At the time of writing this, Gabby’s Reproductive Rights are Human Rights campaign has raised over $800 for the Abortion Liberation Fund of PA.
