Beyoncè shares support for Frank Ocean

Beyoncè is the latest of Frank Ocean’s peers to show their support for the singer-songwriter, who revealed earlier this week that his first love was a man.

On her website, the “Crazy in Love” singer posted a black-and-white picture of Ocean with a poem of sorts, acknowledging his bravery and courage.  “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.

Beyoncè shared a similar sentiment last year in an interview with  Pridesource.com, showing her admiration for the LGBT community.  “If anyone is brave and true to themselves, it’s my gay fans. 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. It’s the most beautiful thing you can be, and it’s what we all want to be at the end of the day. And not worrying about satisfying or becoming what other people think you’re supposed to be, that’s like the ultimate dream – to just be that brave.”
