Ricky Martin Presents Britney Spears with Vanguard Award at GLAAD Media Awards 2018 - Watch Here!

Ricky Martin strikes a pose alongside Britney Spears backstage at the 2018 GLAAD Media Awards on Thursday night (April 12) at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills, Calif.

The 46-year-old entertainer hit the stage to present Britney, 36, with the Vanguard Award, which is given to those who have made an impact promoting equality and acceptance of LGBTQ people.

“Britney could be one of those stars with a huge LGBTQ following that says nothing and does nothing but instead, she uses her platform to remind audiences around the globe that intolerance is unacceptable,” Ricky expressed during his introduction.

“This is so incredibly amazing. I wrote this speech, and I feel like our society has always put such an emphasis on what’s normal, and to be different is unusual or seen as strange,” Britney said during her speech. “But to be accepted unconditionally and to be able to express yourself as an individual through art is such a blessing.”

Ricky Martin Opens Up About Meeting Husband Jwan Yosef Online!

Ricky Martin is on the cover of Attitude‘s May 2018 issue, hitting newsstands on Thursday (March 29).

Here’s what the 46-year-old singer and actor had to say…

On appearing in American Crime Story, a TV show that explores the homophobia of the 1990s: “The level of injustice that we as a community were dealing with back then was heavy. I played every role before I even started working on this project. I was a closeted gay man who was making my partners hide. I had relationships with other men who were in the closet and I had other relationships with men who were not in the closet but because of me went back into the closet. And so I’m re-living everything that I did.”

On how he avoided facing up to his sexuality for years: “I submitted myself to my career completely. I didn’t open doors to new relationships, and I’m not talking about romantic relationships, I’m talking about any relationship, because I didn’t want people to know me too much. I wouldn’t even sit down and have a cool relationship with amazing producers or great film directors because I was afraid that if they spent more than two hours sitting with me they would know my nature. I wasted so much energy trying to manipulate my sexuality.”

On how he first met husband Jwan Yosef online: “I contacted him and we talked for six months. We were just sending messages, talking about life and existential issues. Nothing sexy, nothing sexual. It’s not that he was sending me sexy pictures and vice versa, I swear…but when I first saw him I said, ‘I am marrying this guy’. And apparently he said exactly the same thing. Obviously he only told me this later on, you have to keep it to yourself at first! But I lost my breath when I saw him. Six months’ build-up and it was very romantic.”

Ricky Martin Talks to His Kids Every Day About How Every Family Is Different

Ricky Martin is looking so good in the April 2018 issue of Gay Times.

Here’s what the 46-year-old American Crime Story: The Assassination of Gianni Versace actor had to share with the mag:

On redefining relationships in the modern era: “Love manages itself in millions of ways. I talk to my kids every day about how every family is different. Let me be, I let you be. It’s simple.”

On his upcoming Vegas residency: “Right now, I’m really open to see what comes to me. I’m not going to limit my possibilities. I’m going to go to every event and enjoy every party.”

On the death of Gianni Versace: “What killed Gianni Versace was homophobia. It’s not the way he died, it’s the way it was allowed to happen. Back in the 90s – and we have to be careful because history tends to repeat itself – Gianni Versace was killed by a man that was on the FBI’s Most Wanted list. This man was living in Miami but because he was a gay man killing other gay men, everybody turned the other way. That’s what infuriates me.”
