Ricky Martin reveals that his father encouraged him to speak publicly about his sexual orientation – El Diario NY


In the interview conducted by Andy Cohen on the ‘SiriusXM’ network, Ricky Martin explained that his father told him that he should be honest with himself and with others, so that his children would not have to grow up with a father who was not authentic. This conversation was a turning point for the singer, who finally decided to make his sexuality public.

“My father told me: ‘What are you going to do? Are you going to teach your children to lie? You have to be more open, you have to get out there. I want to help you, how can we do it?“said the interpreter of ‘La Copa de la Vida’.

Martin recalled that the public reaction was mostly positive, and that the support he received from his fans, friends and family was overwhelmingly good.

The singer’s confession had a great impact on the LGBT community and society in general. Many admired him for his bravery and honesty, and supported his decision to live openly as a gay man.

“I said, ‘Okay, Dad, I’m working on it. Give me a second, because I still don’t know whether to do it in an interview. I don’t know if I should write a letter and tweet it. I don’t know. Don’t bother me, I’ll do it’”he mentioned during the conversation he had with Andy.

Martin said he is grateful for the support of his family and fans, and is happy to be a voice for the LGBT community. His bravery and perseverance have been an example to many, and his story is a reminder of the importance of living an authentic and fearless life.

“Afraid of my nature, of my truth? NO MORE! On the contrary, these give me courage and firmness. Just what I need for me and mine, and even more so now that I am the father of two creatures who are beings of light. I have to be at its height. To continue living as I did until today, would be to indirectly overshadow that pure brilliance with which my children were born,” he added.
