Frank Ocean sparkles in a skirt on the cover of 032c magazine


The Pyramids singer has been praised for the cover, which shows the contrast between his R&B/Hip-Hop persona and queer identity. 

Frank Ocean has been praised by fans and critics after appearing on the cover of Berlin based magazine, 032c, for their “BERLIN KIDZ” winter edition.

The German magazine cover has been recognised for blurring the lines between Frank’s hip-hop persona and queer identity, showing the star wearing his normal attire – a white t-shirt, socks and trainers – with a sparkly, sequin skirt.

Frank came out in 2012, before the release of his widely-acclaimed debut, Channel Orange. Since then, he has become one of the most groundbreaking and successful LGBT musicians in the hip-hop industry.

Take a look at Frank’s 032c magazine cover below.

Last month, Frank also worked the glitter when he threw a Drag Ball for his 30th birthday, in some seriously tight leggings.

Days before his birthday, Frank won a homophobic libel lawsuit against his estranged father, who attempted to sue him for defamation of character.

In a Tumblr post, Frank wrote: “I was 6 years old when I heard my dad call our transgender waitress a faggot as he dragged me out of a neighborhood diner saying we wouldn’t be served because she was dirty.”

“That was the last afternoon I saw my father and the first time I heard that word, I think, although it wouldn’t shock me if it wasn’t.”


He added: “Many are annoyed by our wanting to be married like everyone else or use the correct restroom like everyone else.”

“Many don’t see anything wrong with passing down the same old values that send thousands of kids into suicidal depression each year. So we say pride and we express love for who and what we are. Because who else will in earnest?”

Since Frank released his chart-topping sophomore album Blonde last year, he’s been pretty quiet from the music industry. Here’s hoping 2018 brings us that highly-anticipated third studio album (and more glitter)…
