Character: Frank is a 50-year-old white gay man who has managed to build a life of comfort and success in the city of Los Angeles. His past has great similarities with Adam's since Frank was also kicked out of his house for being gay, and for a long time, he lived on the streets of Los Angeles until an Asian family helped him with work and shelter. Beyond the similarities between Frank and Adam, it is the fact that Adam saves Frank’s life, making Frank bend over backward to help Adam, knowing that all he needs is to feel loved and accepted to blossom.
Frank and Mark, a successful gay couple living in Beverly Hills, take Adam into their home and help him in her transition to Linda. Frank is not only trying to pay off the debt he owes to life from having been helped by a good family at the time, but he owes a personal debt to Adam, who resurrects him after suffering a heart attack in a Los Angeles subway station.
