Songwriter Frank Ocean is celebrating Independence Day as a "free man" after officially coming out in heartfelt post on his Tumblr.

The Odd Future member posted on Tuesday:

we’re all a bunch of golden million dollar babies. my hope is that the babies born these days will inherit less of the bullshit than we did. anyhow, what i’m about to post is for anyone who cares to read. it was intended to fill the thank you’s section in my album credits, but with all the rumors going round.. i figured it’d be good to clarify..

Ocean went on to write a beautiful story about his first love, a man, and feels completely free now that he's set the record straight about his sexuality.

What a brave and amazing decision!

Good for you Frank! We're so happy for you!

American Pro Soccer Player David Testo: I'm Gay

America Pro Soccer Player David Testo Is Gay

It's true! David Testo is gay!

The American soccer pro is the first former MLS and professional soccer player to come out of the closet.

David explains how difficult it's been for him holding part of himself back but how the decision to let himself be public is a freeing one (please note the quote is a rough translation from a French report):

I’m gay, I’m gay. I did not choose. It’s just part of who I am. And it has nothing to do with the talent of a soccer player. You can be both an excellent soccer player and being gay.

I really regret not having said publicly earlier. I fought with it all my life, my whole career. Living the life of a professional athlete and being gay is incredibly difficult. It is like wearing a secret…It saps all your energy…in addition to having to perform, having to play.

We're really happy to hear this, David! And we hope you can feel so much better now that you're truly free to just be. And he's absolutely right, his sexuality should have nothing to do with his career as a professional athlete.
