I flere år har Tyler, the Creator hintet om at han er homo, men fansen har stort sett avfeid det som tøys.
I TRIED TO COME OUT THE DAMN CLOSET LIKE FOUR DAYS AGO AND NO ONE CARED HAHAHHAHAHA

Blant annet «Garden Shed», hvor den 26 år gamle blomstergutten fra Odd Future har linjer som kan referere til hans seksuelle orientering:
– That is what I was hiding, that is what love I was I in / ain’t no reason to pretend / garden shed for the garcons / them feelings I was guarding
– Hageskjulet for guttene / de følelsene som jeg voktet
Frank Ocean stod frem som homo i 2012, noe Tyler referer til:
– Thought it would be like the Frank poof, gone / but, it’s still going on
De skjulte følelsene til Tyler stopper ikke?
Noen mener at det er tydelig at rapperen/produsenten kommer ut:
Tyler been saying he was on some gay shit forever but we all thought it was trolling lmaooo. No wonder his earlier music was so homophobic

Kind of makes sense that Tyler is gay. The name of the album is “flower boy”

Andre sier det hele er PR for albumet:
