“I would get married,” he told King. “There are many countries around the world where same-sex marriage is a right...yes, we could go to Spain and get married. We can go to Argentina and get married. But, why do we have to go somewhere else? Why can’t I do it in my country where the laws are -- you know, protecting me?”

The singer has been critical of the Puerto Rican government’s view on LGBT issues. In May, Martin released a statement asking for that the government pass initiative that would end discrimination in the worldplace based on sexual orientation. 

“The same rights for each and every citizen of Puerto Rico, that’s what we are asking for, and that’s what he hope to achieve, the country of justice and peace we want.” he said in a press release. “Puerto Rico has to join all the countries of the world that are at the forefront in human rights and equality.”
