Ricky Martin: Puerto Rican, Gay Dad, Revolutionary

Earlier this week, Puerto Rico Gov. Ricardo Rosselló announced his resignation Wednesday days after hundreds of thousands of demonstrators — which made up the island's largest protest in recent — called for his removal after private chats were leaked the contained, among many other things, homophonic content.

Superstar Ricky Martin protested alongside many in the country — setting an amazing example for his kids as to what's possible when people rise up and stand for what's right. He chronicled the week's protests on Instagram, some of our favorites of which are below:

"Puerto Rico we did it." 


"Let the pressure build"


"I'm so proud to be Puerto Rican" 


Resign Ricardo Rosselló!


"This is my people. United."
