In a statement on his official website, Martin writes, "Today is my day, this is my time, and this is my moment. These years in silence and reflection made me stronger and reminded me that acceptance has to come from within and that this kind of truth gives me the power to conquer emotions I didn't even know existed."

"At this moment I'm feeling the same freedom I usually feel only on stage," Martin continues, "I am proud to say that I am a fortunate homosexual man. I am very blessed to be who I am."

He also cites how important his two young sons are to him. He describes them as "so full of light and who with their outlook teach me new things every day."
