Ricky Martin announced on his website yesterday that he is, in fact, gay. So he joins the ranks of Lance Bass and Savage Garden’s Darren Hayes to come out of the closet, surprising no one.
He wrote a lengthy note on his feelings and perspective of the world : “Hoy ACEPTO MI HOMOSEXUALIDAD como un regalo que me da la vida. Me siento bendecido de ser quien soy!” and translated it as “I am proud to say that I am a fortunate homosexual man. I am very blessed to be who I am.”
