Ricky Martin Comes Out

Ricky Martin Comes Out

Putting to rest consistent rumors about his sexual orientation, Ricky Martin announced on his blog he is “a fortunate homosexual man.”

“I am very blessed to be who I am,” the Puerto Rican singer wrote.

Martin spoke out against Jorge Steven López Mercado’s death in an op-ed el Nuevo Dia published on Dec. 20. And in what appears to have been a potential prelude to his own personal torment, he wrote mere tolerance of those who are different is simply not enough.

Central Voice reported (Jan-Feb) on Jorge Steven López Mercado’s gruesome death near Cayey last November. Since then Puerto Rican authorities have charged a local man with first-degree murder and four other counts in connection with his death.

Following the incident more than a thousand people marched through the streets of San Juan to pay tribute to Mercado and to demand an end to hate crimes.

“If we accept each other, humanity will come together,” Martin said.
