Frank Ocean lauded for revealing same-sex love

NEW YORK (AP) — The music industry is showing support to R&B singer Frank Ocean after he revealed his first love was a man.

Ocean announced the news Wednesday on his blog. His record label’s president said Thursday in a statement to The Associated Press that “Def Jam is so proud to stand beside Frank Ocean.”

Joie Manda says: “Frank broke down a wall that should never have been built.”
