Ricky Martin: 'Although Being Gay Makes Some People Uncomfortable, I'll Fight For My Rights'

Although he's aware that some people "are uncomfortable by his nature," Puerto Rican Ricky Martin defended his sexual orientation and said that he'll continue singing, detracting some level of importance from several acts of censorship of which he's been a target of.

According to information obtained by Mexican news agency Notimex, it was upon his arrival to Nicaragua, where he was scheduled to perform Friday as part of his 'Musica+Alma+Sexo' tour, that the singer declared he is a gay man ready to defend his right.
