Grammy-winning artist Frank Ocean debuted his solo album in 2012 and, just a few months later, bravely became one of the first major hip hop artists to be open about having been in love with a man. He shared details about his past relationship on his Tumblr, and received much support throughout the industry. Musicians and moguls like Beyonce, Russell Simmons, and T Pain have continuously expressed pride in Frank’s courage and openness. His ability to break free of rigid categories, in conjunction with his emotionally provocative lyrics and unique melodies that have garnered a wide range of awards and nominations, make Frank a modern icon.

Frank Ocean opens up about his first love, gets support from hip-hop community

Odd Future’s Frank Ocean posted an emotional letter on Tumblr on Wednesday in which he revealed that his first love was a man. Ocean wrote in the post:

“4 summers ago, I met somebody. I was 19 years old. He was too. We spent that summer, and the summer after, together. Every day almost. And on the days we were together, time would glide. Most of the day I’d see him, and his smile.”

Ocean also wrote that he “couldn’t imagine keeping up my life without him,” and added that he shared the story of his first love with some of the people he is closest to, including his mother. The artist ended the letter with, “I feel like a free man. If I listen closely.. I can hear the sky falling too.”
