Mexican pop star Christian Chavez made headlines over the weekend after a newspaper published pictures of him marrying his boyfriend in Canada. A member of soap-opera birthed pop band, RDP, Chavez had this to say:
On March first 2007 certain photographs were released that show a part of me, a part that I was not prepared to speak of in fear of rejection, of criticism, but especially for my family and its consequences.
I don’t want to keep on lying and lie to myself because of fear, I love what I do and singing is my life, my passion. I would never dream of doing anything else. I feel bad for not having shared this with all my fans before, as they are the ones that worry and it is because of them that I decided to be honest.
It is, after all, the best policy.
