It's a terrible fact that many non-straights DO live in fear and confusion before realizing there is a large community of people who don't give a sh*t about someone's sexuality, and who celebrate love and tolerance!
SeXXXy specimen of man Ricky Martin gave a revealing, heartfelt speech at during a UN conference on homophobia Tuesday, sharing the inner turmoil he went through before coming out!
The Evita star expressed:
"For many years, I lived in fear … because I was hating myself because I grew up listening to a very crooked concept: 'You're gay. You belong in hell.'"
But now Ricky wishes he could come out again, and would tell others questioning themselves:
"It's just beautiful – you find love."
Poignant and TRUE!
UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon also showed his support for those who favor the same gender, and lambasted the 76 countries who still CRIMINALIZE homosexuality.
We're just hoping the US federal government legalizes same sex marriage come summer 2013…
Here's to a more respectful, tolerant future global population!
