Ricky Martin: “I don’t feel alone”

Since coming out, Ricky Martin says he no longer feels alone.

“I feel liberated. I feel in touch with myself. I feel protected. I don’t feel alone,” he said.

“Because sometimes when you’re quiet about yourself, you feel all alone. And all of a sudden you come out and have this amazing community, the LGBT [lesbian, gay, bisexual and trans-gender] community, who are giving you nothing but love.

“And if I focus on this, I get tears in my eyes because, oh my God, I wish everyone that was struggling right now could feel what I’m feeling as I’m talking to you. It’s just love coming from every f***ing direction.”
