ricky martin came out on his official site today. much love to ricky and his swiveling hips. and no this doesn't mean i forgot he once said in an interview that he loves piss play. how fetish friendly it was of him to come out as a piss pig first and as gay years later. here are his own lovely words (also in spanish on his site):
"I am proud to say that I am a fortunate homosexual man. I am very blessed to be who I am."
and here is the full, heartfelt message, with some of it after the jump. i'm pasting it here in case he changes his mind in five minutes:
"A few months ago I decided to write my memoirs, a project I knew was going to bring me closer to an amazing turning point in my life. From the moment I wrote the first phrase I was sure the book was the tool that was going to help me free myself from things I was carrying within me for a long time. Things that were too heavy for me to keep inside. Writing this account of my life, I got very close to my truth. And this is something worth celebrating.
