Does Tyler, the Creator Come out as Gay on His Leaked Album?

Only a few days after it was officially announced, Tyler, the Creator’s upcoming album, 'Scum Fuck Flower Boy', has leaked ahead of its July 21 release date. The biggest news coming out of the 'Flower Boy' leak is the questions it has raised about Tyler’s sexuality.

With ‘Scum Fuck Flower Boy’ leaking over the weekend, fans of the rapper have drawn particular attention to one lyric on ‘I Ain’t Got Time!’ where Tyler appears to come out as gay or bisexual, rapping: “Next line will have them like, ‘woah’ / I been kissing white boys since 2004.” The track 'Garden Shed', a song with lyrics about hidden love and misunderstood feelings caused many to speculate whether Tyler is coming out: “Garden shed for the garçons / Them feelings I was guardin' / Heavy on my mind / All my friends lost / They couldn't read the signs,” he raps on the second verse of the song. The track features Estelle on the chorus and bridge.

The situation is kinda complicated because of Tyler’s history of casually using gay slurs. On his 2011 album 'Goblin', he used anti-gay language over 200 times and in 2015 he caused a stir by releasing a shirt that reimagined a white supremacist logo in rainbow colors (see image below).

Have you guys listened to his leaked album yet and what do you think about these speculations?
