Isaiah Rashad broke his silence this weekend about a sex tape that appears to out him as LGBT friendly

and he's taking all the love and support he's received in stride

the first time he's taken the stage publicly since a private tape of his leaked back in February

showing him engaged in a sex act with two men.

The clip went viral, conjuring lots of reaction from the hip-hop community, including shock.

Fact is, Isaiah had only ever indicated he was into girls ... at least in his music, anyway.

While there were some who chimed in with homophobic jokes and insults

there were just as many who spoke up having Isaiah's back

including some prominent figures in the industry, like The Game

who said people's private lives were no one else's business but their own.
