Ricky Martin is a gay rights activist.
This is GLAAD – Why can’t they give awards to gay people who work for gay rights? I guess some people prefer when they give awards to Jennifer Aniston merely for doing movies with gay characters in them.

@Gays rock!:
I like ur comment just for mentioning Jennifer Aniston :)
