Singer Frank Ocean has opened his first LGBT+ nightclub in New York City after retiring from the music biz. Ocean's music career went the way of the dinosaurs after he came out as homosexual when he left the hip-hop collective Odd Future to go solo.

Now the 31-year-old Scorpio is back on the scene - but not as a hip-hop artist. The "Novacane" singer launched his first LGBT+ nightclub in New York City.

Ocean will be throwing his grand opening party on Thursday night called PrEP+ in New York, The Blast reports. The name PrEP+ comes from the prescription drug taken by MSM (men who have sex with men) to prevent the transmission of HIV.

Ocean announced PrEP+ is "an ongoing safe space made to bring people together and dance. PrEP+ will welcome globally celebrated DJs."

After everything he's gone through, Ocean says his LGBT+ nightclub will not tolerate hate of any kind. If you are not ghey-friendly, you will not be welcomed at PrEP+.

Lil Nas X used to pray that being homosexual was just a phase he was going through. The one-hit wonder came out as ghey during the peak of his brief career as a chart-topping country rap star.

Nas X came out to fans in a tweet during Pride Month in June. And while he's now proud to be out, Nas told Gayle King in an interview on CBS' This Morning on Tuesday, that he wasn't always so secure in his sexuality.

Telling King he "knew" when he was growing up that he was homosexual, Nas said he tried to pray the ghey away: "Especially during my teenage years, I would just pray, pray and pray," he said. When King asked what he prayed for, he replied: "That it was a phase."

The musician added that he's well aware his celebrity status gave him an advantage when it came to coming out.

"Me being in this position, it's easy for me," he said. "But some little boy 10 miles from here, it's not gonna be good for him."

Nas, who was raised by his single mother and grandmother, says he is hopeful that his coming out story will help other boys going through similar situations. He told King that there's "still a lot to be done."

"We still have a long way to go, because it's not like everybody is messing with me now. 'Cause of course somebody who's listening to me in school right now, it's like, 'You're gay, cause you're listening to him'. There's still a lot to be done, of course. But I do believe it's helping."

The 20-year-old Aries is best known for a remix of his country rap hit "Old Town Road" featuring Billy Ray Cyrus. "Old Town Road" made Billboard chart history for the most weeks at No. 1.

But now the appeal of being America's first bonafide country rap star is fading.

The Atlanta native, who was born Montero Lamar Hill, was forced to cancel 2 concerts this week due to poor ticket sales, and he announced he will take a break away from music after performing at the upcoming 94.9 Jingle Ball in San Francisco, which runs from Oct. 7 through Oct. 9.

They say you should never kick a man while he's down. But that's precisely what the gheys are doing now that Kevin Hart is laid up in a hospital with pins stabilizing his fractured spine.

Hart, 40, fractured his back in 3 places during a serious car crash near his Calabasas, Calif. home on Sunday.

Now the comedian is being dragged on social media for daring to question why country singer Lil Nas X was apprehensive about coming out as homosexual.

Kevin and Nas both appeared on Tuesday's episode of HBO's The Shop: Uninterrupted, where the "Old Town Road" one-hit wonder was asked how he felt about publicly coming out.

But before the Atlanta native could answer, Kevin interrupted: "He said he was gay, so what?"

The 20-year-old explained that he was taught to "hate" homosexuality, when growing up, prompting Hart to question: "Hate what? Why?"

"Come on now. If you really from the hood, you know," Nas told Hart. Nas X went on to say he is glad he came out at the peak of his career.

It isn't clear if the comedian was joking or he really didn't know that homosexuals are stigmatized - particularly Black homosexual males.

Social media users are steaming mad that Hart kept interrupting Nas X every time he attempted to explain why he was nervous about coming out.

They took aim at the comedian and questioned why Nas X was forced to appear on the show alongside "homophobic guests".

"Kevin Hart's rage and bitterness about anything to do with gay people is so jarring," Vox writer Jenee Desmond Harris tweeted.

The Daily Beast editor-at-large Goldie Taylor added: "'He said he was gay. So what!' Kevin Hart knows exactly what the 'so what' is here and why a young black boy would closet his sexuality until he believed it was safe."

Others theorized that Hart was trying to be politically correct after he was heavily criticized last year for saying he would beat his son with a doll house if he ever came out as homosexual.

The drama comes days after NY Undercover actor Malik Yoba, 55, confessed he was attracted to male to female transgenders.

A Facebook post is casting new light on Malik Yoba's confession that he struggles with his attraction to male-to-female (MtF) transgenders.

Malik, 51, shocked his female fans by confessing he is "trans attracted." The New York Undercover and Cool Runnings star admitted his sexual preference in a lengthy post on his Instagram account last week.

Malik called on all Black men to erase the stigma that surrounds attraction to same-sex males and MtF transgenders.

"TRANS PEOPLE DESERVE LOVE AND RESPECT AS DO THOSE OF US THAT LOVE THEM!!" Malik wrote. He added he is a heterosexual male who loves ALL women, including men who identify as women, but he struggles with his attraction to MtF transgenders.

As the news went viral on Friday, a MtF transgender prostitute shed new light on Malik's sexual proclivities.

In a Facebook post titled, "Surviving Malik Yoba: We had sex, when I was just a teen," Mariah Lopez Ebony said s/he serviced the actor as a teenage hooker over 20 years ago.

Mariah claimed s/he was a runaway when Malik paid for sex on more than one occasion.

"For all who applaud and solute [sic] Malik Yoba for revealing he is so called ‘Trans Attracted’, understand that either because of deeper issues he has or, because of ‘society’ pushing him and others to deep, dark places, his admission to being sexually attracted to Trans women, is bound to open a Pandora’s box for him; not because the women are Trans, But because many of the Trans women he engaged in sexual exploration and exploitation with on 14th Street, Times Square and elsewhere, were minors. Including myself...

What Malik paid me to do, as a 13 and 16 year old, wasn't love. His ignoring that I was clearly a child prostitute, wasn't love.

Paying for cheap thrills and secret orgasms; begging for unsafe, unprotected sex from a runaway Trans teen, while enjoying stardom as a successful artist and business man ...isn't love."

In the early 2000s Malik was married to actress Cat Wilson. Malik says he was stunned when, after three years of marriage, Wilson called him to say "We should be separated."

Wilson is best known for her work on R. Kelly's "Trapped in the Closet" music video "chapters" released from 2005 to 2012. She also dated Kelly.
