Ricky Martin says he wishes his kids were gay

“I wish I could come out again because it just felt amazing. And then after that, people coming to me and saying thank you so much for coming out. Because of you, I understand my father better. I understand my sister better. So it’s an important thing to do.

I don’t know, my kids are too young, but I wish they were gay. It is a very special thing. The sensitivity, the way I see now, that I don’t have to hide in any way shape or form. I see colors. And then you see the rainbow. I understand why the symbol is the rainbow. It’s just real. Everything is tangible. It makes me a stronger person.”Ricky Martin speaking to ABC’s Popcorn with Peter Travers about the positive impact coming out had on his life.
