The Honduran government has authorized the upcoming October 16 Ricky Martin concert.

Earlier this month some religious leaders wanted to prevent the show from happening because they deemed Ricky a bad example for being a gay parent and claiming the show has “erotic content”.

The government indicated that banning the event would be “a highly reprehensible act of intolerance.”

But they did put the restriction that concertgoers must be older than 15 years to see Ricky’s performance “to protect the mental health of Honduran youth.”


A government official said that they placed an age restriction due to the bisexual content and the erotic and sexual scenes of the concert.
