Frank Ocean

Frank Ocean caused a media firestorm in July of 2012 when he admitted to falling in love with a man.  The music industry supported him and he would have a hit album with Channel Orange and win two Grammys.  On being labeled courageous, the New Orleans native said, "A lot of people have said that since that news came out. I suppose a percentage of that act was because of altruism; because I was thinking of how I wished at 13 or 14 there was somebody I looked up to who would have said something like that, who would have been transparent in that way."
