Often criticized for using the gay slur “faggot” and other references to gay people, Tyler, the Creator and other Odd Future members were accused of being bigoted homophobes, but oddly enough, they have not only one, but two gay members in their collective.
The group’s only female, DJ Syd The Kid is an out lesbian who is very open about her sexuality with a lesbian love interest in the Internet’s “Cocaine” video.
To our recent knowledge, Frank Ocean recently revealed that he too, is bisexual and his first love was with a man.
While many people were stunned, Odd Future was relieved for their “brother,” who was finally able to be himself through a poetic liberating letter of clarity.
On Formspring, Tyler revealed that he knew about Frank Ocean’s sexuality for quite some time now.
“I’ve know for a while, he told me a long time ago. It was just funny cause I was getting bashed as a homophobe or whatever and I kept saying, dude how am I one? I have gay friends, like what the fuck leave me alone haha. yeah thats my nigga tho, shit is hard for him but he did that.”
People should definitely give Tyler, the Creator and the other Odd Future members more credit.
Though the media paints them as immature homophobic misfits, they’re actually extremely accepting individuals.
