Ricky Martin

For nearly 20 years we’ve shaken our bon-bons and lived la vida loca thanks to this Latino heartthrob. But there’s more to Ricky Martin than being a Grammy winner and one of Puerto Rico’s most successful pop stars. He’s a father, a lover and more importantly – as he tells us – a proud gay man...

Announcing his sexuality to the world was such a positive experience for Ricky Martin that he wonders: “Can I come out again?”

On top of the world with two adorable children, a new man in his life and a Grammy on his bookshelf for his most recent album, the singer says: “Coming out is such an amazing thing it’s a shame you only get to do it once.”

Ricky’s coming out as “a fortunate gay man” took the form of an announcement on his website in 2010 followed by a candid, inspirational autobiography called Simply Me. He’d been questioned about his sexuality previously, answering with it’snobody’s-business vagueness rather than admissions or denials because he wanted to declare it on his own terms.

About Gay Times

Our brand new cover star is the next great LGBT+ role model and one of the most important queer musicians of our time – it’s Mykki Blanco. In our exclusive interview, Mykki pulls no punches as he takes on the music industry’s glass ceiling for gay artists, talks candidly about his HIV diagnosis and explains why he doesn’t want to be the “watchdog” of the gay media. Also in your brand new GT, Olympic gold medallist Callum Skinner opens up for the very first time about his gay family life in an exclusive interview, while we also shine a light on how the government is helping victims of LGBT+ hate crimes. Plus, we have exclusive interviews with Ricky Martin, Broadway star Ramin Karimloo and Maggie Wheeler – aka Janice from Friends. Oh… My… GAWD!
