You Go Ricky!

In the past I've blogged about the who, when, where, why, and hows of one day coming out to my parents. As of today none of the plans have come to fruitation.

There are some that are like, what's the freaking big deal? Everybody knows anyway.

I imagine that's the same words that Ricky or any of the other celebrities that came out in the last couple years (Clay Aiken for example) have heard. Of course being in the limelight brings the focus out even more.

So it was cool reading that Ricky Martin finally found the courage to officially reveal what folks have speculated or known for years. He did it when he was ready.

These words from him were especially poignant and confirms that even if it's obvious to everyone, coming out is something that has to be done in your own time.

"Enough is enough. This has to change. This was not supposed to happen five or 10 years ago, it is supposed to happen now. Today is my day, this is my time, and this is my moment."

I just realized the catalyst it seemed for Ricky and earlier Clay to come out was having kids. Hmm, maybe I need to have a child. Joking....*LOL*. For now anyway .

All I can say is "Way to go Ricky"!
