Ricky Martin wishes he could come out again
UNITED NATIONS (AP) — Latin superstar Ricky Martin is telling a U.N. conference on homophobia that he wishes he could come out again so he could tell people struggling with their identities that "it's just beautiful — you find love."
Martin said Tuesday that "for many years, I loved on fear ... because I was hating myself because I grew up listening to a very crooked concept: 'You're gay. You belong in hell.'"
Martin, who is currently starring on Broadway in "Evita," said it was amazing to be at the U.N. surrounded by people "fighting for one cause — equality and love and social justice."
Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon got a standing ovation after saying that lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people — the LGBTs — "are entitled to the same rights as everyone else."
