The Puerto Rican singer Ricky Martin He dedicated a space on his social networks to react to those who have decided to stop following him on social networks, after posting a photo with her husband, Jwan Yosef.
But far from being concerned that they no longer follow him, he raises a flag over the message that this implies.
“Pause … today I want to speak to you from my most vulnerable side … A week ago, I uploaded some photos with my husband for a special edition of the magazine @cap74024. It was a wonderful experience for both of us and a way to celebrate our pride. What I did not expect, especially after all the work that has been done for so many years, is that a large number of people decided to stop following us or comment in a derogatory way. Of course, it is not the number of followers that worries me, it is the message behind their decision that has caused me the same feeling that I had years ago before sharing publicly about my sexual orientation. That same fear that paralyzed me, tormented me and would not let me be. Today I see the photos and what I feel is a full peace of being able to celebrate my family as they deserve, in style. To celebrate me as I am, regardless of what they will say. And that fear that I just talked about no longer paralyzes me, on the contrary, it gives me much more strength and pushes me to continue working for the well-being of millions of people who suffer every day due to lack of acceptance. The most I wish in this life is that we can all feel free, proud of ourselves, happy, loved, respected and accepted. That we can express ourselves how we are born without retaliation or being punished. It is not fair to continue losing valuable lives due to prejudice and lack of education. To all those who feel lost or not valued for being who they are and want to be, they are not alone, there is a great community that awaits them with open arms. They are worth a lot, please do not forget. #pride #pridemonth”Reads the publication that in a matter of minutes has reached thousands of“ likes ”.
