Frank Ocean’s mother is proud that her son had the courage to be open and honest to the world about his sexuality. She wrote on twitter:
“My son is brave and honest and I am very proud of him. I wish more people in the world could be brave enough to be who they really are…Thank you to all who have shown love and support. My son is the most incredible human I know. Honest, true and loving. We appreciate you!”
Thank you, Frank Ocean.
It’s true, we are a lot alike… “spinning on blackness. All wanting to be seen, touched, heard, paid attention to.” In your opening few lines, you simultaneously established your humanity, a burden far too often asked of same sex lovers, and acknowledged that in this age of hyper self- awareness, amplified in no small part by the social media medium in which you made your announcement, we are desperate to share. You shared one of the most intimate things that ever happened to you – falling in love with someone who wasn’t brave enough to love you back. Your relieving yourself of your “secret” is as much about wanting to honestly connect as it is about exhibition. We are all made better by your decision to share publicly.
The love fest for Ocean continues…I just wanna hear is album! [Ace Show Biz]
