Beyoncé showed her support for Frank Ocean this weekend by posting an online letter on her website dedicated to the R&B artist. The letter was posted just days after the singer opened up about his sexuality.

With handwritten words over a picture of Ocean, Beyoncé writes, “Be fearless. Be honest. Be generous. Be brave. Be poetic. Be open. Be free. Be yourself. Be in love. Be happy. Be inspiration.”

In an interview last year with PrideSource Beyoncé said she admired her gay fans for their bravery.

“The amount of confidence and fearlessness it takes to do what maybe is not what your parents expect you to do or what society may think is different - to be brave and be different and to be yourself - is just so beautiful,” she said. “Not worrying about satisfying or becoming what other people think you’re supposed to be, that’s like the ultimate dream.”

Ocean wrote the song “I Miss You” off of Beyonce’s album “4” and contributed hooks to two tracks on Jay-Z and Kanye West’s Watch The Throne LP.

Ocean’s upcoming album, Channel Orange, is set for a July 17th release.
