O astro do pop latino Ricky Martin assumiu ser gay em uma nota em seu site oficial, nesta segunda-feira (29). “Eu tenho o orgulho de dizer que sou um homem homossexual. Eu sou muito abençoado em ser como sou”, diz o texto.

O cantor, que começou a carreira como membro da boy band Menudos, diz que a decisão de assumir-se gay foi tomada após ter começado a escrever sua autobiografia.

“É um projeto que eu sabia que me traria mais perto do um ponto de mudança na minha vida”, explica no texto. “Algumas coisas eram muito pesadas para eu guardá-las dentro de mim”.

“Muita gente já me disse que ‘não é importante’, ‘não vale a pena’, ‘o seu trabalho desses anos todos vai por água abaixo’ (…). Foram pessoas que eu amo muito que me disseram isso, e por isso decidi viver a minha vida sem contar toda a verdade”, explica Martin.

No texto, o cantor afirma que seus filhos, nascidos em 2008, foram uma das razões da sua declaração. “Viver dessa maneira (sem se assumir) (…) seria diminuir a luz dos meus filhos. (…) Hoje é o meu dia, essa é a minha hora, e esse é o meu momento. Esses anos de silêncio e reflexão me fizeram mais forte e me ensinaram que a aceitação tem que vir de dentro”.

“O que vai acontecer agora?”, pergunta Martin. “Não importa. Eu só posso me concentrar com o que está acontecendo comigo agora. A palavra ‘felicidade’ ganha um novo sentido para mim hoje”.

Martin já havia dado pistas de que faria revelações sobre sua vida pessoal no livro, durante entrevista realizada antes de um show no México, em novembro passado. “Quero lançar meu livro, me serviu muito para desafogar emoções, sentimentos, coisas que vivi. Quero falar do que vivo, sinto, gosto e não gosto. Foi bastante complexo colocar este livro em ordem, porque foi um intenso quebra-cabeças”, disse o cantor, na época.

No segundo semestre de 2008, em agosto, Martin tornou-se pai de gêmeos (gerados em uma barriga de aluguel), tendo revelado imagens dos filhos 4 meses após o seu nascimento. Os nomes das crianças são Valentino e Matteo.

Leia o post original:

“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 thisis something worth celebrating.

For many years, there has been only one place where I am in touch with my emotions fearlessly and that’s the stage. Being on stage fills my soul in many ways, almost completely. It’s my vice. The music, the lights and the roar of the audience are elements that make me feel capable of anything. This rush of adrenaline is incredibly addictive. I don’t ever want to stop feeling these emotions. But it is serenity that brings me to where I’m at right now. An amazing emotional place of comprehension, reflection and enlightenment. At this moment I’m feeling the same freedom I usually feel only on stage, without a doubt, I need to share.

Many people told me: “Ricky it’s not important”, “it’s not worth it”, “all the years you’ve worked and everything you’ve built will collapse”, “many people in the world are not ready to accept your truth, your reality, your nature”. Because all this advice came from people who I love dearly, I decided to move on with my life not sharing with the world my entire truth. Allowing myself to be seduced by fear and insecurity became a self-fulfilling prophecy of sabotage. Today I take full responsibility for my decisions and my actions.

If someone asked me today, “Ricky, what are you afraid of?” I would answer “the blood that runs through the streets of countries at war…child slavery, terrorism…the cynicism of some people in positions of power, the misinterpretation of faith.” But fear of my truth? Not at all! On the contrary, It fills me with strength and courage. This is just what I need especially now that I am the father of two beautiful boys that are so full of light and who with their outlook teach me new things every day. To keep living as I did up until today would be to indirectly diminish the glow that my kids where born with. Enough is enough. This has to change. This was not supposed to happen 5 or 10 years ago, it is supposed to happen now. Today is my day, this is my time, and this is my moment.

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.

What will happen from now on? It doesn’t matter. I can only focus on what’s happening to me in this moment. The word “happiness” takes on a new meaning for me as of today. It has been a very intense process. Every word that I write in this letter is born out of love, acceptance, detachment and real contentment. Writing this is a solid step towards my inner peace and vital part of my evolution.

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