    I'm not happy for him. Gee, thanks for the award, eventhough I spent my entire career, when I had one, hiding in the closet until it was convenient and profitable to come out? PHONY hack

    Rick Martin is an inspiration to gay youth! while perez makes it so much harder to be gay.

    I think Ricky Martin really looks like MJ's oldest son - especially if you compare photos when they were the same age.

    I just don't get why they give him an award for hiding in the closet his whole life! To those ssaying he is an inspiration, how is hiding in the closet inspiring, inspiring are those kids living a out the closet life who have to deal with everyday life ups and downs. Many of us been out ever since we knew we were gay. The only reason he came out was because of his book and perhaps the extorshionist, now he is an 'inspiration' wtf, i think perez is more of an 'inspiration'

    Award Martin for what? It is interesting that Martin remained closeted and resistive to Mario's threats to 'out' him while he was in retirement and out of the public eye. But then only after Martin decided to return to the spotlight, he came out. "Gay pride"? I don't think so. It was a mean to appeal to the gay community for support. All that Martin did when he came out, is affirm what we all knew. He may have been in the closet … a closet with a glass door.

    What would have been more interesting is how concerned Mario was that
    Martin might pop him one in the nose, just as a rapper friend did because of Mario's harassment and threats to out him.

    Was Vito Russo a pitcher or catcher?

    It is strange to get an award just for being gay!

  18. 18

    What sucks is that, if it were any regular person that experienced this, GLAAD would NOT have hopped on a place to help them out. Congrats Ricky!

    such a beautiful man. physically and spiritually. TE AMO RICKY!!!! and i wanna see this CARLOS a good definite clear photo of him. make sure he is treating my baby right. lol. and yeah i kinda agree the award seems more of a "congrats on coming out" than “congrats for standing up for us” but hey i think for those who have come out you deserve an award. :)

    And she should have said, “My partner is crime and in PASSION!”

    lol cause i can’t even imagine how hot those two get with each other. Ricky is hot enough imagine two latin studs WHOOH!!! and i know his boyfriend is latin because there are pics.

  24. 24

    Re: alexie silver – lol there are plenty of ”just tops” out there, Ricky your Idol for not coming out until his 40th birthday needs to sell books, is a total bottom

    Who cares about the award! I'm sitting here shocked because some mega-organization flew outside of the continental US just to "correct" a reporter! I mean, how realistic is that?? Are they gonna hop on their fancy purple-interiored jet whenever some kid gets bullied for wearing eyeliner?? Are they gonna hop on their jet everytime "the office gay" gets talked about at the breakroom watercooler?? Or even other organizations!! Is the NAACP gonna hop on their jet everytime a black man gets called "the n-word"?? I THINK NOT!!! Damn, if that's the case, you may as well go out and get every gay a bodyguard!! Ricky's a grown man. He should be able to defend himself when he gets picked on. Hey GLAAD, i'm a recovering heroin addict. What do you want me to do everytime a person doesn't trust me because I used to get high?? Get my doctor at the methadone clinic to FLY OUT to wherever so he can present my clean bill of mental health?? Get a freakin grip!! What a waste of money!! GLAAD's setting a very bad example in this economy, and I pity anyone who's ever donated to them because now they know what their money's REALLY going towards!!

    @ Diamondheart you are an idiot, if you don't like Ricky. what are you doing in his topic?

    Ricky Martin has been an inspiration for the gay community, he is a respectable, decent, global star, and he HAS CHANGED HOW PEOPLE VIEW GAYS IN LATIN AMERICA. " HE IS THE FIRST MAJOR START TO EVER COME OUT IN LATIN AMERICA. HE IS VERY BRAVE.
