Ricky Martin announces online he is "GAY"


Ricky Martin: 'I Am a Fortunate Homosexual Man'

After years of keeping quiet about his personal life, pop star Ricky Martin has announced that he is gay.

"I am proud to say that I am a fortunate homosexual man," Ricky said in a message posted on his offical Web site. "I am very blessed to be who I am."

Ricky said writing his memoir and thinking about his two twin sons led him to go public.



"To keep living as I did up until today would be to indirectly diminish the glow that my kids where [sic] born with. Enough is enough. This has to change. This was not supposed to happen 5 or 10 years ago, it is supposed to happen now. Today is my day, this is my time, and this is my moment," he wrote.


Though the 38-year-old kept his sexuality private throughout most of his career, Ricky said he drew strength from that time.

"These years in silence and reflection made me stronger and reminded me that acceptance has to come from within and that this kind of truth gives me the power to conquer emotions I didn't even know existed," he continued. "What will happen from now on? It doesn't matter. I can only focus on what's happening to me in this moment. The word "happiness" takes on a new meaning for me as of today. It has been a very intense process. Every word that I write in this letter is born out of love, acceptance, detachment and real contentment. Writing this is a solid step towards my inner peace and vital part of my evolution."

Earlier this month, Barbara Walters told The Toronto Star that her 2000 interview with the "Livin' La Vida Loca" singer, where she grilled him about coming out, was a misstep on her part.




"In 2000, I pushed Ricky Martin very hard to admit if he was gay or not, and the way he refused to do it made everyone decide that he was," she told The Toronto Star. "A lot of people say that destroyed his career, and when I think back on it now, I feel it was an inappropriate question."
Ricky also Tweeted a link to his coming out announcement on his Web site, simply writing, "my life."


In an earlier Tweet on Monday, the singer posted a quote attributed to the late Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

"Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter. M.L.K.Jr.," martin wrote.

Infomercial fitness: Those 6-pack abs as seen on TV


NEW YORK - You're bemoaning your tummy roll when on the TV appear exquisitely toned specimens working out with gadgets that promise to rock, roll or wheel those love handles into abs to die for. Should you go for it?
Experts say all infomercial machines are not created equal. Some are mere gimmicks, some actually work. But targeting one area, such as the midriff, is no way to get fit or lose weight.
"These ads communicate to the public the flawed notion that spot reducing is possible," said Jessica Matthews of the non-profit American Council on Exercise (ACE). "Research has shown that's not the case."
She added that a well rounded program includes cardiovascular work and strength training of all the major muscles, not just the abdominals.
"The more muscle mass we have the more efficient our body becomes and that's when we start to lose body fat so we can see that definition," Matthews explained.
And those buff and smiling TV exercisers?
"The ads say that if you want six-pack abs, spend 10 minutes a day using this equipment," she said. "Those people are not just doing 10 minutes a day."
Matthews cited an ACE-commissioned study that concluded you don't need to purchase a piece of exercise equipment to strengthen your abs.
"The abdominal rollers and rockers tested were not any more effective than a traditional crunch, and some were much less effective," she said.
The study also advises that strong abdominals are important for long-term health, good posture and the alleviation of lower back pain, so if a particular device inspires you, it may be worth it.
Before you phone in the plastic, Henry Williford, an expert with the American College of Sports Medicine, has some advice for evaluating infomercial claims.
"You have to be very careful," he said. "Qualitative terms like improved muscle tone don't mean anything. In the lab we can measure body fat and body composition, but there's no way to measure muscle tone, so there's no way to evaluate."
He added that there is also no evidence for another claim that suggests people will lose inches.
"They don't have any data. Where do the inches go? They use those kinds of claims a lot," he said. "Then they'll tell people that a low intensity exercise will burn fat. Well, it doesn't matter if youre burning fat or no fat. The important thing is to burn calories."
Williford said a product can be good if its used correctly but it is the amount of exercise that's important.
"Stay away from gimmicky things," he advises. "Don't trust testimonials by individuals that aren't based in research."
And know what youre buying. Even Williford who is an exercise physiologist and researcher at Auburn University in Montgomery, Alabama, has been burned.
"We did an evaluation of these little exercise balls they were making all kinds of claims about," he said. "So we ordered the ball. But according to the fine print we had also ordered a new DVD every month for a year."
So what is the secret to six-pack abs as seen on TV? Williford is skeptical.
"A lot of them are photoshopped, to be honest with you," he said.

Earth Hour events: Beyond switching the lights off

Almost the whole world will be switching its lights off for Earth Hour this Saturday, March 27, the Philippines included. “Switch-off events are slated for every major city and town in the Philippines,” shares Gregg Yan, Information, Education and Communications Officer, World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF) Philippines. Philstar reports that over 10 million Filipinos switched off their lights in 2009 and saved enough electricity that amounted to shutting down a dozen coal-fired power plants for an hour. This year, 100 countries have committed to join Earth Hour, an increase from last year’s 88.
But aside from turning to candlelight for an hour, there are more ways to pledge support for the fight against global warming and climate change. Blogging, tweeting (tag your tweets with @earthhour) and sharing the news about Earth Hour on Facebook and other social networking sites with downloadable banners and images, are just some of the ways to inspire people to take Earth Hour beyond one hour.
In Manila, get ready to join in the festivities lined up to support Earth Hour 2010:

Rafael Rosell: 'I love being naked


Rafael Rosell stars in another Precious Hearts Romances installment for the Cristine series. Since he will be working again with Denise Laurel who was also his partner in Precious Hearts Romances Presents Midnight Phantom, they are now being tagged as the show's favorite actors. "Good dahil ibig sabihin pinagkatiwalaan kami ng Dream Big Productions, ni Direk Lauren (Dyogi). And well, sana favorite nga kami. It is so much fun to work with the family. Wala kaming issues with them. Andali nila makausap."

Since Precious Hearts Romances is known for its sexy scenes, ABS-CBN.com asked Rafael if he will do sexier and more revealing scenes in future episodes. "Para as akin naman kasi I don't think of it as a sexy scene. Kasi it is part of the pocketbooks din na talagang may love moments and what we are trying to do as best as we can is to portray reality at nangyayari rin naman yun sa totoong buhay medyo na ga-glamorize lang dahil TV. Basically, it just a part of the job. Tatanungin nila ako, 'Magpapa-sexy ka ba? Magbo-bold ka ba?' It is like asking magda-drama ka ba? Magco-comedy ka ba? It is just the same category, just part of every story."

He added that it is not at all difficult to feel comfortable executing love scenes with his leading ladies, especially Denise. Denise also told ABS-CBN.com that their director and producer made things easier for them. "Thank God for Precious Hearts kasi they give us bonding workshops. They give us time to get to know each other, they give us time to tell each other what we like and what we don't like, and where we are comfortable and where we are not. By the time we start shooting, kilala na namin ang isa't-isa so parang isang tingin pa lang alam na ni Raf ang iniisip ko," Denise said.

Rafael further revealed that, "Ako comfortable lang talaga ako. I walk around naked sa bahay; ang init na El Niño na. I endorse underwear kasi. Kampante lang. I mean, we were born naked, why hide it?" He then readily dismissed the question whether or not he is afraid to be labeled as an exhibitionist. “Hindi naman. People can think whatever they want to think naman. If I start defending myself, they'll still believe what they want to believe. I don't know if it you can call it confident, talagang comfortable lang. It is nice to be naked."

pinoy men society turns 0ne


 Happy Birthday to me!
Happy Birthday to me!
Happy Birthday… Happy Birthday…
Happy Birthday to me!

Today is this site’s first year anniversary. It really is a cause for a celebration because to be able to maintain this site, that I did not really want and ask for at first but loves dearly now, really exceeded all expectations.

So much has happened to me in the past year that really would go down history, and it was such a joy that every single lunacy I did was documented here.

The effect blogging had on me was really a positive one. Aside from giving me a wider audience where I can take my cause through my writing, it has given me an entirely new learning experience, not only with my writing but more importantly, it has taught me a new definition of the words friends and interpersonal relationships.

I also strongly believe that blogging has made me a lot smarter too because it made me read a lot. More than that, blogging has given me an avenue to where I can process all of the insights lost here and there on the cluttered portions of my brain, my reflective thinking almost always working up and about and because of that it has made me a better person – a more analytical, more deliberate, and more mature person.

Of course I owe all of this to that one person who forced me – who dragged me by the arm – to put up my own blog, exactly one evening a year ago which we will all hide in a cloak of anonymity through the name Jean Paul pierce, the moderator of one of the best travel blogs in the world, but apparently he doesn’t know it.

So with 203 published posts, 88 comments, 98,783visitors as of today 2:14 pm manila time , 13 followers on Google connect,  a lot of blog friends, and one good year behind me.

I created my blog obviously on the 21th of march 2009 but I only started blogging regularly when mid of may came, when I finally started to appreciate the joys blogging possesses – and I intend to appreciate it more in the years to come.

im sure that the coming year shows a promising and HOTTER post from yours truly.  I just hope that you will continue your patronage and keep on sending those comments…

Thank you everybody for giving me a worthwhile experience.

please VOTE "ANG LADLAD" #89

 
The five nominees of Ang Ladlad are Ms. Bemz Benedito, a transgender who studied Sociology at the Ateneo de Manila University Graduate School; Atty. Germaine Trittle Leonin, from the College of Law, University of the Philippines; Mr. Cris Lopera, a seasoned NGO leader from General Santos City in Mindanao; Ms. Naomi Fontanos, another transgender finishing her graduate degree in Education at the State University; and Mr. Dex Macaldo, who used to work as a media officer with another, elected party-list in the previous Congress.


ANG LADLAD is a national organization of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender Filipinos. Our members are either LGBT organizations or individuals, or their heterosexual supporters.

In Filipino, “magladlad” means to unfurl the cape that used to cover one’s body as a shield. It means to come out of the closet, to assert one’s human rights as equal to that of the next Filipino. Thus, it means to take one’s place in the sun, with dignity intact.

ANG LADLAD is running for party-list elections for Congress in the May 2010 elections. Thus, it is bound to make history.
It will be the first political party composed of LGBT Filipinos that will claim—and reclaim—the rights we have lost from centuries of homophobia and discrimination.
Our platforms follow:
  1. Support for the Anti-Discrimination Bill that gives LGBT Filipinos equal rights and opportunities in employment and equal treatment in schools, hospitals, restaurants, hotels, entertainment centers, and government offices. The bill makes discrimination versus LGBTs a criminal act.
  2. Support for LGBT-related and LGBT-friendly businesses.
  3. Setting up of micro-finance and livelihood projects for poor and physically-challenged LGBT Filipinos;
  4. Setting up of centers for old and abandoned LGBTs. The centers will also offer legal aid and counseling, as well as information about LGBT issues, HIV-AIDS, and reproductive health. These centers will be set up in key cities of the country.
  5. Support for the the bill repealing the Anti-Vagrancy Law that some unscrupulous policemen use to extort bribes from gay men;
The platforms of ANG LADLAD are like laser beams—clear and focused only in one direction. We aim to restore our pride and dignity as LGBT Filipinos as well as give ourselves a chance to lead kinder and gentler lives.
The only way to shape history is to make it.Be part of history.
