Quote of the day - Ricky Martin "I was an anti-gay bully"

"I was very angry, very rebellious. I used to look at gay men and think, I'm not like that, I don't want to be like that, that's not me. I was ashamed.

"When you're told you're wrong by everyone, from society, from your faith - my self-esteem was crushed. I took my anger out on those around me. I look back now and realize I would bully people who I knew were gay. I had internalized homophobia.

"To realize that was confronting to me. I wanted to get away from that." - Ricky Martin, speaking to GQ Australia.
