Puerto Rican singer, Kany Garcia, came out over the weekend, announcing she is in a relationship with her personal trainer, Jocelyn Troche.
In a note posted to Instagram in spainsh, the singer said
What a perfect time to open my heart and show who I really am, on the weekend of lovers (Valentine’s Day). Love always wins, always sets one free and always transforms. Today I want to put my fears aside and face my truth. That is how I share with you this very special photo with this extraordinary woman who has stolen my heart.”
The singer-songwriter, who is also a winner of two Latin Grammys also added.
“… what is good is not to be hidden but to be shared. Because if anything is not sinful it is love and because at the end of the road I want to face myself and embrace myself, knowing that in my life I was always faithful to myself.”
That is how I share my abundance with you. When one speaks with love and with truth, only good things can happen.”
The announcement won messages of support, including one from the leader of Puerto Rico’s gay community, Pedro Julio Serrano, and fellow artist Ricky Martin, among many others.
