In Ricky Martin’s VH1 Behind the Music special airing Sunday, August 14 at 10 p.m. ET/PT, he discusses his personal struggles in living an open and honest life. As an activist for equality he says, "I don’t want more rights than you. I want the same. That’s all."
With Puerto Rican financier Carlos Gonzalez by his side as Martin’s partner, he has found strength and happiness despite his adversity. Commentators on the documentary show say that there has never been someone like Ricky Martin in the Hispanic community.
