    Martin said Tuesday that "for many years, I loved on fear ... because I was hating myself because I grew up listening to a very crooked concept: 'You're gay. You belong in hell.'"

    Martin, who is currently starring on Broadway in "Evita," said it was amazing to be at the U.N. surrounded by people "fighting for one cause -- equality and love and social justice."
