For my midterm paper and presentation, I would like to research Frank Ocean. His rise as a hip hop artist is incredible and then to come out as a gay black man in the hip hop industry, which is not known for a welcoming and being more homophobic sphere. For Frank Ocean to sing about his experiences in such a cruel industry makes him a trailblazer for other queer artists to create space and a sense of community. He is ever evolving and makes no apologies.
