Frank Ocean: To Be or Not To Be a Gay Icon

Frank Ocean should be recognized as a queer icon, so why isn’t he is comparison to say Sam Smith? Lady Gaga? Even Harry Styles gets credit for being a queer icon and he hasn’t even publicly come out yet (not like you have to). I’ll be arguing that Frank Ocean should be considered a queer icon from his coming out letter, foreword to Moonlight, and raising money for Prep+ and many more, and will be lightly touching on why he doesn’t get recognition as queer staple artist/icon.
