Frank Ocean has been rather unreachable these days, but he broke his silence after posting a heartfelt note on his Tumblr page earlier today. The post was in response to the tragic shooting at LGBTQ nightclub, Pulse, in Orlando last week. He poured his emotions into words to express his feelings about the lack of acceptance that LGBTQ people routinely face in our society. Citing the treatment of gay men by ISIS, the Orlando shooting, and he even recalls the trans-phobic discrimination he witnessed from his own father. Ocean wonders how people can justify discrimination through religion.
Ocean said: “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.” It seems as though he has lost all faith in humanity and is just hoping that somewhere in the world something good is coming from all these heinous crimes.
