In my own youth; we called everyone in our street, 'aunty or uncle' and could nip into any number of houses in close proximity when we were locked out. It was all about human interaction. And it was lovely. Only last week, when grocery shopping, I found a potato that looked like a womble, I turned to the lady next to me and said, 'look! Madame Cholet!' she ran away.
A musician called Frank Ocean put out a letter via his Tumblr page letting us know his first love was a man he met at the age of 19 and struggled with the feeling being reciprocated. Frank is a 24-year-old black man, who sings about love and life, and is a part of a hip hop collective Odd Future and inevitably a public letter of this nature comes with huge cultural impact.
