Frank Ocean Speaks on Orlando Tragedy in Open Letter

frank ocean

Frank Ocean has always had a way with his words when it comes to tributes. Last night, he took to Tumblr to pen a touching open letter about the Orlando shooting. In the letter, he recalls his first experience with transphobia with his father.

Frank also touches on wishing for a future in which all people —despite their sexual orientation or status— will be respected. “I daydream on the idea that maybe all this barbarism and all these transgressions against ourselves is an equal and opposite reaction to something better happening in this world, some great swelling wave of openness and wakefulness out here,” he writes “Reality by comparison looks grey, as in neither black nor white ,but also bleak.”
