Puerto Rican singer Ricky Martin revealed to El Nuevo Día that he will marry his partner Carlos González Abella on Saturday, January 28, 2012 at a ceremony in New York.
Since he announced his homosexuality in March 2010, Martin has declared himself in favor of same sex marriages and he has spoken publicly on the importance of changing legislation in Puerto Rico regarding this issue. Last June, the singer said, “What I wish for is that people say no to discrimination, and that equality among us humans should become a reality in my country.”
Martin made his first public statement about his relationship with economist González Abella at the awards granted by the Gay and Lesbian Alliance against Defamation (GLAAD) in March 2011 saying, “Today I can say that I am free and, because of this, I definitely have to thank my parents for supporting me so much and for their unconditional love, and also to my friends, my family, my fans and my partner and boyfriend, Carlos.”
