Ricky Martin has long established himself as a true gay icon. Recently catapulted back into living rooms with his portrayal of Gianni Versace's partner Antonio D’Amico in Ryan Murphy's American Crime Story: The Assasination of Gianni Versace, Ricky is again using his platform to diversify and broaden our understanding of love in the 21st century. Now happily married with two children, he lives a far less 'vida loca' than previously, but urges us not to forget the past and reminds us just how important it is for younger audiences to know the story of Gianni Versace.
“What killed Gianni Versace was homophobia. It’s not the way he died, it’s the way it was allowed to happen. Back in the 90s – and we have to be careful because history tends to repeat itself – Gianni Versace was killed by a man that was on the FBI’s Most Wanted list. This man was living in Miami but because he was a gay man killing other gay men, everybody turned the other way. That’s what infuriates me.”
PLEASE NOTE THIS IS A PRE-ORDER.
