One of the music industry's most celebrated artists of last year with six Grammy nominations, Frank Ocean is now being cited by an outside group as well. The "Thinkin' Bout You" singer has been nominated for Outstanding Music Artist at the upcoming GLAAD Media Awards.

The gay and lesbian group nominated Ocean, who came out last year, along with other LGBT artists including Scissor Sisters, Rufus Wainwright and Adam Lambert.

"This year's nominees enlighten and entertain, but also reflect a new American landscape where a growing majority accept and value their LGBT family, colleagues and friends," GLAAD President Herndon Graddick said in a statement announcing the nominees.

The GLAAD Media Awards will take place over three separate ceremonies in New York on March 16, Los Angeles on April 20 and San Francisco on May 11.
