Ricky Martin comes out of the closet

Seriously, this probably wasn't a big surprise to anyone with a serious gay dar, but folks, it turns out Ricky Martin is gay.

He revealed as much on his own website yesterday.  That he's gay is and that he came out is great news for the LGBT community.  What bothers me is that according to Ricky Martin, he did not come out before because he was told it could hurt his career.  I don't doubt it would.  Homophobia is rampant everywhere, including in the music industry.  Hopefully some of it can now be broken.  No one should have to hide their sexual orientation for the sake of their career, be it in music or in the military.
