Spanish singer and Grammy-nominated songwriter Pablo Alborán has come out as a proud gay man. In an emotional Instagram video the artist publicly opened up about his sexuality.
“We need to reconsider our lives, careers, what does and doesn’t make us happy,” he says as he begins his Instagram video. “I think that we often forget about the love that unites us and makes us stronger.”
He continued: “Today, I want my voice to be louder and for it to have more value and weight. I’m here to tell you that I am homosexual and it’s okay. Life goes on, everything will remain the same, but I’m going to be a little happier than I already am.”
As ‘Out’ reports, just after he posted his video, messages of love and support filled instagram from fans, including a message by superstar Ricky Martin. “You don’t know how many men and women you have helped with this video,” Martin told Alborán in the comment section of his post. “How happy I feel for you.”
In his coming out, Alborán also talked about how he hopes to help closeted queer people who don't come from accepting backgrounds in their own journey of self-discovery.
“There are so many people that did not have the same experience I did,” he said. “That’s why today, without fear, I hope I can make somebody’s journey easier with this message. But above all, I do this for me.”
