Beyonce Supports Frank Ocean, Praises Crooner for Opening Up About His Sexuality

Since opening up about his sexuality, Frank Ocean has earned praise from numerous music luminaries, and now Beyonce has added her voice to the chorus of those supporting the R&B singer.

On her website, Beyonce posted a black-and-white photo of the rising crooner, who revealed earlier this week that his first love was a man. Atop the image, Beyonce added something of a tribute poem, acknowledging the bold step that Ocean — an associate of the controversial and purportedly homophobic Odd Future crew — made by addressing rumors regarding his sexuality.

“Be fearless / Be honest / Be generous / Be brave / Be poetic / Be open / Be free / Be yourself / Be in love / Be happy / Be inspiration,” she wrote.

This isn’t the first time the superstar has big-upped the LGBT community, and in an interview last year with, she dished on what she admires about gay fans.

“If anyone is brave and true to themselves, it’s my gay fans,” she said. “The amount of confidence and fearlessness it takes to do what maybe is not what your parents expect you to do or what society may think is different — to be brave and be different and to be yourself — is just so beautiful…. Not worrying about satisfying or becoming what other people think you’re supposed to be, that’s like the ultimate dream.”
