Ricky Martin: Gay and GLAAD

Earlier today, Ricky Martin revealed that he is gay. GLAAD (Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation) president Jarrett Barrios has reacted to the news.

“When someone like Ricky Martin comes out, hundreds of millions of people now have a cultural connection with an artist, a celebrity and, perhaps most importantly, a father who happens to be gay,” Barrios said. “His decision to model this kind of openness and honesty can lead to greater acceptance for countless gay people in U.S., in Latin America and worldwide.”

Earlier in the day, Ricky publicly revealed his sexuality, saying, “I am proud to say that I am a fortunate homosexual man. I am very blessed to be who I am.”

DO YOU THINK Ricky Martin coming out will lead to greater acceptance of gay people?
