Ricky Martin wishes he could `come out` again

Washington: Latin superstar Ricky Martin said in a UN conference on homophobia that he wishes he could come out of the closet again so he could tell people struggling with their identities that “it’s just beautiful - you find love.”

“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’,” Fox News quoted him as saying on Tuesday.

The 40-year-old singer, who is currently starring on Broadway in ‘Evita,’ said it was amazing to be at the United Nations surrounded by people “fighting for one cause - equality and love and social justice.”

The ‘Livin La Vida Loca’ hit-maker praised UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon who got a standing ovation after telling the conference that LGBTs “are entitled to the same rights as everyone else.”
