Now Frank has decided to speak to UK Publication The Guardian Guide about it all. The full interview is released today. These are excerpts from the interview.
“[It was] about my own sanity and my ability to feel like Iâ€™m living a life where â€¦ Iâ€™m
happy when I wake up in the morning, and not with this freakinâ€™ boulder on my chest.
I wished at 13 there was somebody I looked up to who would have said something like
that, who would have been transparent in that way.
I knew that I was writing in a way that people would ask questions. I knew that my
star was rising, and I knew that if I waited I would always have somebody that I
respected be able to encourage me to wait longer, to not say it till who knows when.
People are just afraid of things too muchâ€¦ Sure, evil exists, extremism exists.
Somebody could commit a hate crime and hurt me. But they could do the same just
because Iâ€™m black. They could do the same just because Iâ€™m American.”
