Gay Men Thank Ricky Martin for Coming Out

Aired on 11/02/2010 | CC tv-pg
Coming out is an intensely personal decision, and one that can come with high stakes, since identifying as LGBTQ is still taboo in many communities. In 2010, when pop star Ricky Martin announced to the world that he was gay, it created a ripple effect that led others to share their truth. During his Oprah Show appearance later that year, three men, including a Latin man who credited Ricky for paving the way for gay Latinos, shared how the announcement transformed their lives.
