Please welcome to the world GAYLETTER issue 10 featuring Frank Ocean (@blonded) Photographed by @collierschorrstudio Interview by @tomjjackson Styled by @jasonrider Frank is one of the most talented and (from the outside) elusive musicians alive, but in working on this story he was forthcoming, open and thoughtful discussing a whole range of subjects, from the queer influences who have shaped him, to dating apps, to what he wished he’d done when he met the president (the last one, not the new one). When, some years back, we started the #GAYLETTER newsletter (which eventually turned into our magazine) in @abinyc ’s bedroom, 10 was not a number we imagined saying out loud. But here we are! We’ve always tried to be timeless not timely in our content, and there’s nothing more timeless than love — sappy but true. Start to finish, our 10th issue is filled with people we love, from our cover star, to artists Tom Bianchi and Lyle Ashton Harris, to the many writers, activists, photographers and talented queens featured throughout… Read the cover story and buy the issue at GAYLETTER.com #gayletterissue10 #gaylettermagazine #frankocean

The very private Frank Ocean has revealed that he’s been in a relationship for three years.

In the Gayletter interview that was released yesterday Ocean also admitted that he doesn’t use dating apps because of his celebrity and relationship status.

Intuition is a big word for Frank Ocean. It’s been a guiding star in his uncharted course to success. His trust in it has led to various awards, beloved albums, even a surprise magazine filled with two years of globetrotting adventures. Believe it or not, intuition also told us that one day Frank Ocean’s path would cross our own. So when the opportunity arose to collaborate — on the cover story for our 10th issue, no less — we were, on some level, not surprised. We were, nevertheless, nervous, excited and well aware that we needed to create something special. Frank is one of those people who makes you want to be your best. The pillowcase on the wall behind @blonded was given to Collier Schorr when she was 12 years old. Only last year did she rediscover it at her dad’s house in Florida. Somehow it found its way onto our cover. I guess it was meant to be.

“I definitely wasn’t using dating apps before then,” Ocean said. “I don’t think I would use dating apps now.”

Other Frank Ocean facts are that he wants to go to college and he’s 6’1″ and not 5’10” like reported earlier.
