What is something that shocked you when you were younger that isn’t so shocking now?
When entertainers began to be open about their sexuality – gay, bisexual, etc.- I was always surprised. Now I’m surprised that I was surprised. The first one that I remember being open about homosexuality was Boy George. Back then I didn’t know what being gay was. I didn’t think I new anyone that was gay. (At the time, I was nine years old. Nobody in the third grade was coming out of the closet yet.)
So when Ricky Martin revealed that he was gay, I was not as surprised. Disappointed that I had lost my chance to be Mrs. Ricky Martin – maybe. I guess it wasn’t meant to be. If he’s happy, then I’m happy. Nothing can change the fact that he is just a man trying to do the best he can in this world. We can’t ask for anything more, except maybe a few more photographs or a few more guest appearances on “Glee.”
