Ricky Martin Comes Out.

Ricky Martin

I presumed everyone already knew Ricky Martin was gay. Clearly not, as he officially came out yesterday in a letter posted to his website.

“At this moment I’m feeling the same freedom I usually feel only on stage, without a doubt, I need to share,” he writes.

The single father of twins has been working on his memoirs recently and apparently had an epiphany, cementing his decision to go public.

“From the moment I wrote the first phrase I was sure the book was the tool that was going to help me free myself from things I was carrying within me for a long time. Things that were too heavy for me to keep inside,” he writes.

“If someone asked me today, ‘Ricky, what are you afraid of?’ I would answer, ‘the blood that runs through the streets of countries at war…child slavery, terrorism…the cynicism of some people in positions of power, the misinterpretation of faith.’ But fear of my truth? Not at all! On the contrary, it fills me with strength and courage.

“Today is my day, this is my time, and this is my moment,” the Grammy winner and former Menudo member continues.

“The word ‘happiness’ takes on a new meaning for me as of today. It has been a very intense process. Every word that I write in this letter is born out of love, acceptance, detachment and real contentment. Writing this is a solid step towards my inner peace and vital part of my evolution.

“I am proud to say that I am a fortunate homosexual man. I am very blessed to be who I am.”

Good for you Ricky! You may have confirmed what we’ve expected all along, but we’re happy you are comfortable enough with yourself to let us know!
