I'm sooooo loving the support Frank Ocean is getting after revealing his sexuality. I'm happy that people (for the most part) are being compassionate and open minded.
What frank did is so courageous, it's inspiring. I hope it encourages others to live their own truth.
Russell Simmons released a statement in support of Frank Ocean saying this is a big day for Hip Hop because it will define how compassionate we are.
"Ocean’s post marks “a big day for hip-hop … It is a day that will define who we really are. How compassionate will we be? How loving can we be? How inclusive are we?”
I am profoundly moved by the courage and honesty of Frank Ocean”, Simmons continues. “Your decision to go public about your sexual orientation gives hope and light to so many young people still living in fear. These type of secrets should not matter anymore, but we know they do, and because of that I decided to write this short statement of support for one of the greatest new artists we have.”
His gifts are undeniable. His talent, enormous. His bravery, incredible. His actions this morning will uplift our consciousness and allow us to become better people. Every single one of us is born with peace and tranquility in our heart. Frank just found his. Frank, we thank you. We support you. We love you. “ [via Stool Pigeon]
