Mexican soap star Sebastian Ligarde confessed to TV y Notas that he’s been in a relationship with his boyfriend for over 20 years. He stated, I’m gay and I say this with pride. No gay person should have to walk down the street with stigma stamped on his forehead. Sexual preference is genetic, and if God and my family knows it, then let the world know it. And just like Ricky Martin, Ligarde wants to help instill new values in society. I believe I’m at an age when I can help new values… and to have the courage to accept myself publicly, as Ricky Martin did. He has been an inspiration for me when it comes to talking about this subject. Regarding the actors decision to come out publicly, the 59 y/o said, It’s a day of relief and a lot of courage. It takes courage to be honest. It’s much easier to lie.
