This weekend pop superstar Ricky Martin announced the launch of an “LGBT For Hillary” group. The Hill reports:
“Growing up in the U.S. territory of Puerto Rico, I never dreamed that I would one day be a proud, out gay father of two beautiful little boys, in a country where marriage equality was the law of the land. Now, that’s just an average day — that’s what real progress is,” Martin wrote.
“Hillary knows this, and she’s not going to stop fighting. But in order to protect and build on the progress we’ve made, we need to win this election.” Martin said supporters can join the LGBT initiative with a donation of at least $1 toward Clinton’s campaign. Martin, 43, came out as gay in 2010 and had twin sons through a surrogate mother in 2008. Clinton has been criticized in liberal circles for her previous opposition to gay marriage.
