Frank Ocean's Coming Out: Rapper Trina Show Her Support

When Odd Future singer-songwriter Frank Ocean came out as gay on his blog Wednesday night, his announcement was met with a general outpouring of support from fans as well as the hip hop community -- including the "diamond princess."

Miami rapper Trina told TMZ that Ocean is "extremely talented and that's what matters."

"I don’t think [Frank's] music sales or the level of support his music obtains should be judged based on his sexual preference," she said, adding, "I feel his decision to come forward was bold and honest."

Trina has shown support for the gay community for some time now, including joining the No H8 campaign and photographed by Adam Bouska. As part of the series, she was photographed in 2011 with duct tape over her mouth and "No H8" on her cheek.

On Facebook, she also posted photos of a special fan event she hosted during the Atlanta Gay Pride weekend.
