Frank Ocean is accused of speculating on HIV


With a tightly exclusive guest-list for a night billed with white DJs, and accompanying t-shirts sold for $60, Frank Ocean is being assailed with criticism from the LGBT+ community for his club night which he named after the HIV-preventing drug PrEP. Taking place at Knockdown Centre in the middle class Fresh Pond neighborhood of Queens, Frank enlisted Justice, Sango, and Sherelle to DJ. The inclusion of Justice – a duo of straight, cisgender white men – as the headline act was a sign that the queer-themed title was just an attention grabber. Ocean took to the DJ booth in the early morning and appeared to drop two new tracks as well. But as the morning light dawned on guests emerging out of the lofty venue, which enforced a no-phones policy, many took to Twitter to admit that the queer-themed party was only named such.
