Trina, Busta Rhymes and Boy George are among the celebrities supporting singer-songwriter Frank Ocean's coming out.

Ocean, whose real name is Christopher Francis Ocean, came out as at least bisexual in a blog post Wednesday on his website. He is being credited as the first mainstream hip-hop star to come out.

The 24-year-old Ocean, a member of the collective Odd Future, said in the post that his “first love” was another man.

“By the time I realized I was in love, it was malignant. It was hopeless. There was no escaping, no negotiating to the women I had been with, the ones I cared for and thought I was in love with.”

Ocean added that his feelings were not reciprocated.

Ocean, Miami-based rapper Trina told TMZ, is “extremely talented and that's what matters.”

“I don't think [Ocean's] music sales or the level of support his music obtains should be judged based on his sexual preference.”

“If you are gay, black & gay or just cool you should buy Frank Ocean's album and show him that he did not elevate in vain!! I will!” Boy George tweeted to his more than 214,000 followers.

In an interview with MTV News, Busta Rhymes said he “respects the dude completely.”

“Whatever that man does in his personal space is that man's choice and that man's business,” Busta Rhymes said. “I am an extremely huge fan of Frank Ocean. His music is impeccable to me, and as far as I'm concerned, I respect the dude completely.”

“I don't know if it's just hip-hop being willing to accept [an openly gay or bisexual artist], I think the whole world is ready to accept whatever people choose to be in life,” he added.
