Hip-Hop Artist Frank Ocean Admits To Loving A Man

Frank Ocean of Odd Future (one part Tyler, The Creator who says “faggot” 213 times on his solo album, Goblin) has come out in a letter/screenshot of a TextEdit document posted on his Tumblr.

Quinto says his decision to let the world know his orientation has to do with Jamey Rodemeyer, the 14 year-old who struggled with his sexuality and committed suicide after being subjected to bullying for years. He posted these bits of inspiration Sunday, on his website:
