Whether you believe it or not, this is a big moment for the gay and black communities!
Yesterday, he alluded to being bisexual, but confirmed his sexual preference later with a letter posted to his Tumblr page:
“BasedGod was right” wrote Ocean, followed by the message:
We’re all a bunch of golden million dollar babies. my hope is that the babies born these days will inherit less of the bullshit than we did. anyhow, what i’m about to post is for anyone who cares to read. it was intended to fill the thank you’s section in my album credits, but with all the rumors going round.. i figured it’d be good to clarify..
On when he first fell in love with a man:
4 summers ago, I met somebody, I was 19 years old…he was too…we spent that summer, and the summer after…together….everyday almost……….And then it was time to sleep. Sleep…i would often share with him…by the time i realized I was in love. It was malignant. It was hopeless. There was no escaping. No negotiating with the feeling. No choice. It was my first love. It changed my life.
On his connection with women:
Back then my mind would wander to the women I had been with….the ones I cared for and thought I was in love with. I reminisced about the sentimental songs I enjoyed when I was a teenager..the ones I played when I experienced a girlfriend for the first time. I realized they were written in a language I did not yet speak. I realized too much. Too quickly.

Our little black boys and black men need to know that they don’t have to kill themselves for feeling a certain way. If Frank Ocean can come out, so can you! Kudos!
