Frank Ocean Talks About Coming Out


The singer opens up about his coming out letter he posted in July in 'GQ'

In this year's 'GQ' "Men of the Year" issue, Frank Ocean talks more about his coming out experience.

After posting his letter: "The night I posted it, I cried like a fucking baby. It was like all the frequency just clicked to a change in my head. All the receptors were now receiving a different signal, and I was happy. I hadn't been happy in so long. I've been sad again since, but it's a totally different take on sad. There's just some magic in truth in and honesty and openness."

Frank's changed perspective: "Whatever I said in that letter, before I posted it, seemed so huge. But when you come out the other side, now your brain--instead of receiving fear--sees, 'Oh, shit happened and nothing happened.' Brain says, 'Self, I'm fine.' I look around, and I'm touching my fucking limbs, and I'm good. Before anybody called me and said congratulations or anything nice, it had already changed. It wasn't from the outside. It was completely here, in my head."
