We're Still Not Over Frank Ocean's Panorama T-Shirt
Panorama 2017 was, as expected, a week end to remember. Stellar performances from the long-anticipated lineup and some insane art installations made for an on-point waterfront festival. Among a number of memorable highlights, there is one detail that we simply cannot get over: Frank Ocean’s T-shirt.
The sensual, talented, wonderful “Blonde” singer not only delivered a chilling performance, but also made a statement sporting one of the dopest tees we’ve seen in a while. Its anti-discrimination text could not be more relevant, especially given our current social and political climate: “Why be racist, sexist, homophobic, or transphobic when you could just be quiet?” it reads.
As they do, the good people of the ~interweb~ lost their shit in response to the important message delivered by our beloved Frank.

If you, too, want to get your hands on this powerful graphic tee (we know we do), you can get it online here in several colors for less than $20. It was created by Green Box Shop, an independent label that specializes in fusing social justice issues into their pieces. CEO Kayla Robinson, 18, told Complex about how it feels for Ocean to support her small label. “It’s very exciting to see a queer icon like Frank Ocean giving a voice to marginalized groups and using his platform to raise awareness about social justice issues using one of our shirts,” she said.
Well done, Frank. Stay woke, people.
