Ricky Martin est officiellement gay


On s'en doutait, on le savait, on en discutait beaucoup et depuis longtemps, mais cette fois c'est Ricky Martin qui l'annonce lui-même et fièrement sur son site web: Aujourd'hui j'accepte mon homosexualité comme un cadeau que me fait la vie. Je suis fier de dire que je suis un homme homosexuel heureux. C'est une bénédiction d'être ce que je suis.  (Hoy ACEPTO MI HOMOSEXUALIDAD como un regalo que me da la vida. ¡Me siento bendecido de ser quien soy!- I am proud to say that I am a fortunate homosexual man. I am very blessed to be who I am. )

Le texte de Ricky se décline en deux versions, espagnole et anglaise. En voici la version anglaise:


A few months ago I decided to write my memoirs, a project I knew was going to bring me closer to an amazing turning point in my life. From the moment I wrote the first phrase I was sure the book was the tool that was going to help me free myself from things I was carrying within me for a long time. Things that  were too heavy for me to keep inside. Writing this account of my life, I got very close to my truth. And thisis something worth celebrating.
For many years, there has been only one place where I am in touch with my emotions fearlessly and that's the stage. Being on stage fills my soul in many ways, almost completely. It's my vice.  The music, the lights and the roar of the audience are elements that make me feel capable of anything. This rush of adrenaline is incredibly addictive.  I don't ever want to stop feeling these emotions. But it is serenity that brings me to where I'm at right now. An amazing emotional place of comprehension, reflection and enlightenment. At this moment I'm feeling the same freedom I usually feel only on stage, without a doubt, I need to share.
Many people told me: "Ricky it's not important", "it's not worth it", "all the years you've worked and everything you've built will collapse", "many people in the world are not ready to accept your truth, your reality, your nature". Because all this advice came from people who I love dearly, I decided to move on with my life not sharing with the world my entire truth.  Allowing myself to be seduced by fear and insecurity became a self-fulfilling prophecy of sabotage. Today I take full responsibility for my decisions and my actions.

If someone asked me today, "Ricky, what are you afraid of?" I would answer "the blood that runs through the streets of countries at war...child slavery, terrorism...the cynicism of some people in positions of power, the misinterpretation of faith." But fear of my truth? Not at all!  On the contrary, It fills me with strength and courage. This is just what I need especially now that I am the father of two beautiful boys that are so full of light and who with their outlook teach me new things every day. To keep living as I did up until today would be to indirectly diminish the glow that my kids where born with. Enough is enough. This has to change. This was not supposed to happen 5 or 10 years ago, it is supposed to happen now. Today is my day, this is my time, and this is my moment.

These years in silence and reflection made me stronger and reminded me that acceptance has to come from within and that this kind of truth gives me the power to conquer emotions I didn't even know existed.

What will happen from now on? It doesn't matter. I can only focus on what's happening to me in this moment. The word "happiness" takes on a new meaning for me as of today. It has been a very intense process. Every word that I write in this letter is born out of love, acceptance, detachment and real contentment. Writing this is a solid step towards my inner peace and vital part of my evolution.

I am proud to say that I am a fortunate homosexual man. I am very blessed to be who I am.

Duncan James, le chanteur anglais est bi: Can't stop a river


photo: wikipedia

Duncan James un chanteur anglais qui est aussi acteur et présentateur de télé s'est confié à propos de son orientation sexuelle en révélant qu'il se sent bisexuel: “Am I gay? Am I straight? Am I bi? That’s why I was so frightened about talking. Now, in my early 30s, I know who I am and I’m proud of who I am. I don’t want to hide anymore. I don’t feel I should launch a big comeback with Blue hiding this – don’t want to go back to the time in the band when I felt I had to keep certain things quiet.”

L'orientation sexuelle, c'est comme l'amour, on ne peut arrêter une rivière...Can't stop the river!

Les paroles

Gone are the days of my mistakes
I'd give everything if everything is what it takes
I'll bring the sun and I will chase the rain
If I needed to

But those may be the ways of mine
But I've been down that road so many times
And if you'll depend upon me
Then maybe you'll see

You can't stop a river from flowing to the sea
Some things just happen like they're meant to be
And it doesn't matter where you are
Or where you go or what you do
You can't stop my heart from loving you

There is a dream I keep alive
Wonderful and heavenly and standing by your side
Bringing you all the colours love can spare
Just to be with you

There may have been times when I
Should have been there to hold you through the night
And if you'll depend on me
Then maybe you'll see


I've been miles away
But I'm paying my dues
But don't worry, I won't blame you for a minute
I won't blame you this time
