No Duh

In the least shocking coming-out of the century (well, maybe behind Clay Aiken), Ricky Martin has officially come out as a gay man. From his official website:

These years in silence and reflection made me stronger and reminded me that acceptance has to come from within and that this kind of truth gives me the power to conquer emotions I didn’t even know existed.

I am proud to say that I am a fortunate homosexual man. I am very blessed to be who I am.

Good for you, Ricky. Thanks for speaking up, congratulations on coming out, and it’s about damn time! Keep on keepin’ on.

    His comment about self-acceptance hits home. A guy I knew in college commit suicide after graduating. Prevailing opinion is that he was possibly gay and unable to accept that in himself/accept coming out. It is so sad to me that people wait YEARS or even kill themselves because of the shame that others put on them for being gay.

    I’m glad that Ricky is finally in the right place to make it known. No, it’s not at all surprising, but it’s good to know he’s comfortable saying the words.

    Not surprised either but my old college roommate is a bit heartbroken. She sure liked the song “She Bangs.” Anyway, good for Ricky.
