Ricky Martin Tells How His Relationship With Jwan Yosef Began
Ricky Martin was honest and told how she met her husband Jwan Yosef , as well as her effort to make her children always feel proud and full of self-esteem. Martin explained frankly that it took him a while to build his relationship with the contemporary artist.
“I contacted him, and we talked for 6 months, we just sent messages, talking about life and existential issues, nothing sensual, not sexual, do not think we sent photos, I swear, but when I first saw it, I said, “I’m going to marry this guy.” And apparently, he said exactly the same, “the 46-year-old singer told Attitude magazine. “Obviously he told me this later … these things you have to keep at the beginning!” But he took my breath away when I saw him, 6 cumulative months and it was very romantic “.
And Ricky was not wrong with his intuition because in January, the star confirmed E! News that he and Yosef had contracted marriage. The artist and the Fever singer used their visibility as a gay couple to inspire other gay men in the world.
“We love it, and we do not even do it for us, but for our children, so that one day our children will see us on the red carpet and say ‘These are my parents, how cool!’, And give them the necessary self-esteem. To understand how amazing it is to belong to a modern family, we know that we can carry this flag and if we are going to take it, let it be alright because at the end of the day, we are proud to be who we are. It’s a great help, that’s my activism, every time I post a photo with my husband on Instagram, that’s my activism, and we’ll continue in the fight, “the actor told the publication.
Although Ricky is very proud of who he is, he admits that he spent years avoiding confronting his sexuality. “I immersed myself in my career completely, I did not open doors to new relationships, and I do not talk about romantic relationships, I talk about any relationship because I did not want people to know me too much,” she explains. “I could not even sit down and have a good relationship with fantastic producers or great directors because I was afraid they would spend more than two hours sitting with me, and knowing my nature, I wasted so much energy trying to manipulate my sexuality.”
The Puerto Rican also spoke of his role in the series The Assessing of Gianni Versace. “The level of injustice that we as a community had to deal with at that time was very strong, I interpreted all the roles even before I started this project, I was a homosexual man who hid his partners,” he said. “I had relationships with other men who were also in the closet and other relationships with men who were clear in their sexual orientation but thanks to my hiding again, that’s why I’m reliving all that I did.”
