Name and Twitter handle: Brian Webb @br_webb
Occupation: Marketing and a leading Canadian LGBT blogger
What do you like most about your job (blogging): I enjoy sharing the stories about the interesting people I meet, the adventures I have been on and inspiring people to lead healthy, active lifestyles. I’m also very passionate about educating people on the issues facing the LGBT community and being a role model for youth.
A notable moment on Twitter? When @TheEllenShow followed me on twitter, followed by @TheMarthaShow.
Your best tweet: A photo of me at the finish line of the 2011 BMO Vancouver Marathon with a bottle of champagne in my hand after completing my first 42.2km full marathon in 3:39:52! Epic day and I’ll never forget it.
What did you want to be growing up? When I was really young I think like most young boys I wanted to be a fireman, but somewhere along the lines I left that dream and realized that marketing was where my career was destined to take me.
If you could have dinner with 1 person (alive or dead) who would it be? Her Royal Highness, Queen Elizabeth II.
Your claim to fame: I’m just an ordinary guy who loves to blog and share my tales. Sometimes I get to go on great adventures and meet some really cool people and try some really neat things.
Do you know of a hidden gem in our city? Coopers Park in Yaletown at sunrise. I went to bootcamp for three years there and the best part was breaking a sweat while watching the sun come up over False Creek and reflecting off the condos. It was always spectacular.
If you were a superhero, who would you be and why? I would be Spiderman – he has an amazing fit body, wears a cool superhero costume and I already spin a ‘Webb’!
If you were a vegetable, what would you be and why? Peas. Who doesn’t like two peas in a pod!
Recommend a Twitter account that deserves some recognition? @jminter – we met on twitter a few years ago and we have been best friends ever since. We are frequently out and about together going to concerts, eating out, shopping, traveling and most importantly we go to the gym every day. He’s an awesome guy who always knows what’s going on in Vancouver.
Describe yourself in 3 words: Fun. Fit. Flirty.
