Beyonce Posts a Handwritten Poem in Support of Frank Ocean Coming Out

After Frank Ocean took to Tumblr last week to publicly announce he was bisexual, luminaries like Jay-Z were quick to vocally support him. And now he can count another superstar as an ally: Jay’s missus, Beyonce.

On her website, Beyonce posted a photo of Ocean along with a handwritten poem superimposed on top. The touching tribute read:

Be Fearless / Be Honest / Be Generous / Be Brave / Be Poetic / Be Open / Be Free / Be Yourself / Be In Love / Be Happy / Be Inspiration

Ever since he came out a few days ago, Ocean, who’s written and performed with scores of pop and R&B stars (most notably on ‘No Church in the Wild’ alongside Kanye West and Jay-Z) has gotten a lot of support — and probably a lot of haters too, but ignorance like that is best ignored.

He broke the news by publishing a lengthy letter on his website, writing about a friend he felt more than just friendly feelings for. “[Four] summers ago, I met somebody. I was 19 years old. He was too. We spent that summer, and the summer after, together. Everyday almost,” Ocean wrote. “By the time I realized I was in love, it was malignant. It was hopeless. There was no escaping.”

Albeit there has been backlash since his brave declaration, but with someone like Beyonce in your corner, who cares about the riffraff?
