Ok, not to be THAT person, but I’ve been a Frank Ocean fan long before his coming out made him appear on everyone’s Facebook newsfeed over the past week… To prove my point, check out THIS post that I wrote forever and a day ago, properly titled ‘Frank Ocean, I’m In Love With Chu’. I mean, hello. And although, I thought I couldn’t love him more, the R&B singer/songwriter took my borderline obsession to a whole ‘notha level with the bravery he exuded in his coming out letter.

In case you’ve been living under a rock/are a Southern Baptist (ha), Frank Ocean posted an open letter on his Tumblr page, where he admitted to the fact that his first love was actually a man. Since his painfully honest blog post (which, let’s face it, could change the face of hip-hop), Frank Ocean has received an outpouring of support from friends like Tyler, The Creator, Russell Simmons, fans/family, and now Beyonce herself.

Beyonce and Frank Ocean first developed a friendship when working together on her stunning song I Miss You. To show love + support to Frank for his brave and beautiful decision to be open about his sexuality and life, the always-classy Miss Knowles wrote some simple yet touching words and dedicated them to Frank; covering the words over a black and white shot of Frank Ocean, she wrote: “Be fearless. Be honest. Be generous. Be brave. Be poetic. Be open. Be free. Be yourself. Be in love. Be happy. Be inspiration.”

Beyutiful! (Ok, that’s corny. But f*ck it!)

Frank’s forthcoming LP Channel Orange is set to drop on July 17th.
