Frank Ocean (1987-)
Sometimes living one’s truth is more difficult. The world of hip hop has had trouble opening its arms to the LGBT community. With a strong emphasis on stereotypical masculinity and femininity, and the common belief that gay men in particularly non-masculine and gay women are non-feminine, it isn’t surprising that there have been hurdles.
Frank Ocean revealing that he had been attracted to men, and the revealing he had been in love with a man is monumental. In other industries it has become routine, but for his it was a big deal.
