Frank Ocean Comes Out As Gay

Standard

New R&B signer Frank Ocean has told ‘The Guardian‘ his true sexual preference- he’s gay! He decided to admit it for his “own sanity and my ability to feel like I’m living a life where I’m happy when I wake up in the morning, and not with this freakin’ boulder on my chest. I wished at 13 there was somebody I looked up to who would have said something like that, who would have been transparent in that way.”

“I knew that I was writing in a way that people would ask questions. I knew that my star was rising, and I knew that if I waited I would always have somebody that I respected be able to encourage me to wait longer, to not say it till who knows when. People are just afraid of things too much. Sure, evil exists, extremism exists. Somebody could commit a hate crime and hurt me. But they could do the same just because I’m black. They could do the same just because I’m American.”
