    I thought Anderson was out without making a grand statement, like Jodie Foster and Johnny Weir.

    I found this at youtube:

    Oh, goodie. I heard the news about Ricky Martin when I wasn't quite awake yet, and afterwards I couldn't figure out if I'd dreamt it or not.

    You know, I already kind of knew this was coming (as we all did)...but if it makes HIM happier with who he is to proclaim it, I'm all for it!

    I'm waiting for the times when 1. no ones cares; 2. there's no need to announce your sexuality. Now people say they don't care, but they are still waiting for announcements.

    And now the media can happily print "openly gay singer Rickey Martin ...." every time he is mentioned in print. Apparently it is an important descriptor. :rolleyes:

    It is important to some people, but I don't think the press will say that EVERY time they printed something about him anyway. They don't do it with other out celebs. They don't say "lesbian talk show host Elled de Generes" or "gay actor Neil Patrick Harris". Especially after the initial hoopla dies down.

    I'm Latino, and while I'd agree that being gay is very hard in Latin America overall, the reaction about Ricky Martin has mostly been in the "oh yeah, knew that already" category. Most people assumed he was gay.
