Frank Ocean Nominated For GLAAD Media Award

Frank Ocean was honored by the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation.

Frank Ocean has been nominated for a GLAAD Media Award.

The Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation has honored the Odd Future singer with a nod for Outstanding Music Artist for his debut Channel Orange. He is up against Adam Lambert's Trespassing, Rufus Wainwright's Out of the Game, Scissor Sisters' Magic Hour and Gossip's A Joyful Noise.

The awards are given to "recognize and honor media for their fair, accurate and inclusive representations of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community and the issues that affect their lives."

Ocean previously discussed his sexuality in an open letter released during the early morning hours of July 4, 2012.

The 24th annual GLAAD Media Awards will occur over the span of three separate events located in New York (March 16), Los Angeles (April 20) and San Francisco (May 11).

      You clearly are threatened by other peoples sexuality maybe you should look at yourself before and sort your own problems out than pointing difference out in others.

      "You clearly are threatened by other peoples sexuality maybe you should look at yourself before and sort your own problems out than pointing difference out in others. How you figure that? I am personally pissed that a "hip hop" album if you can call it that since its more hybrid, is getting recognized by GLAAD. Something not right there. That's not being threatened by anyone. Gay entertainers need to get to the point where they leave their gayness at home. I am at the gym early Monday morning and they keep repeating footage of Jodi Foster. I can't hear, so I'm thinking, damn, my girl didn't die on me did she? Nope. Later on I found out she decided to "come out" Did she really need to do that? Maybe she was not aware, but the whole world already knew she was gay. Who was she doing it for? So they need to spare us.
