*Frank Ocean was among the winners at the 17th Annual Webby Awards, highlighting achievements on the Internet.

The singer won for his bold “Thank You’s” letter on his Tumblr, which announced his past relationship with a man. He wrote, “4 summer ago, I met somebody. I was 19 years old. He was too. We spent that summer, and the summer after, together. Everyday almost. Sleep I would often share with him. By the time I realized I was in love, it was malignant. It was hopeless. There was no escaping.”

Ocean was roundly applauded for his decision to come out, and has since gone on to enjoy huge success with his album “Channel Orange.”

This year’s awards were selected by judges in the International Academy of Digital Arts and Sciences, including Huffington Post boss Arianna Huffington and Twitter co-founder Biz Stone.
