I LOVE FRANK OCEAN! I think he's the bravest man on earth right now because ppl who are in the closet don't have the courage to tell ppl or their family the truth. He's helping ppl like him face their fears and be who they really are and want to be.

MOST hip hop artists are violently & passionately homosexual in their personal lives, this is nothing new.

i agree with you 100% The bm that are gay have fears that they'll get killed or anything else for that matter. So they do what straight bm do so noone knows who they really are as their true selves.

I don't think he actually said "I am gay." If he did, I haven't heard that he has. Has anyone else heard that ?

If you go to rapfix on mtv the have it there and he was doing a concert and he expressed it in one of his songs that he had a sexual relationship when he was younger and if ya'll familiar with 106andpark on BET network they also talked about it. You can also google it.

Merely having a same-sex experience, or even a same'sex relationship does not necesserily mean one is gay, any more than having an opposite-gender sexual experience, or an opposite-sex relationship makes one str8.

Whats the difference between F. Ocean's sexuality than from others who are gay in the "rap" genre?

He's nothing special...

To me he's special because it's especially hard being gay and some bm who are gay don't tell ppl they act like straight men and may even have sex with women but could have a disease. But i also think that there are more bm(rappers, actors, singers, ect.) are gay they just scared to admit and what Frank Ocean did was he came out as the first aa male gay singer and that huge especially in a mainly black world or community. If he's not anything special or important to you, that's fine, but to me, he's some sort of a hero because he's helping ppl who are gay,and other things some ppl find disgraceful and disgusting come out of there shell.
