Ricky Martin Picks Up GLAAD Award, Yearns to Spread Message of Love

by at . Comments

At Saturday night's GLAAD Media Awards, Ricky Martin walked on stage and accepted the Vito Russo Award, which honors openly gay and lesbian entertainers.

The honor arrived one year after the singer admitted to the world that he's gay.

"I've been through an intense spiritual process for the last five years, especially the last two years," he told reporters at the event. "I needed to share it with the world."

Adding that "I've only started" in his mission to spread GLADD's message of love and acceptance, he added:

"Let's share the love! Let's go to Mexico! Let's go to Columbia! Let's go to Argentina! Let's go to Chile! Let's go to Brazil! We need you GLAAD – we need you down there. I can help, I can do it! I'll be part of it. I want to be part of it."

While no dates have been announced yet, the Grammy-winner is prepared to do just this via an upcoming tour.
