A source close to the singer revealed to The New Day that Ricky and his partner Carlos Gonzalez Abella will be married on Saturday January 28th at a ceremony to be held in the city of New York.

Since announcing his homosexuality in March 2010, Ricky has been in favor of marriage between same sex. Even came to express their desire that in Puerto Rico to legislate for such purposes.

“It’s what I want, that you say no to discrimination, for equality among us humans is a reality in my country,” Martin said last June, who is speculated that he had accepted the citizenship granted by the government Spain in November with the intention to marry in that country.

Martin, 40, made his first public statements about his relationship with Abella at the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD) Awards in March 2011, saying, “Today I can say that I am free and, therefore, definitely I have to thank my parents for supporting me so much and for their unconditional love, my friends, my family, my fans and my partner and boyfriend, Carlos.”

Martin came out on March 29, 2010.

On July 24, New York state became the sixth and most populous U.S. state to legalize gay marriage.

  7. I really want to go! I was ecstatic when he came out. Us Latinos especially Puerto Ricans are limited in our public queer figures. Although I’m a little jealous, I’m so happy for him
