Ricky Martin's October 16 concert at the Choci Sosa stadium in Tegucigalpa, Honduras will proceed as scheduled, despite calls from religious leaders to keep the singer out of the country, Fox News reported.

However, citing the show's “erotic content,” children under 15 will not be allowed to attend, officials said.

An ecumenical group of religious leaders had reportedly demanded that the Honduran government deny a visa to Martin, who is set to perform in the country as part of his Musica+Alma+Sexo (MAS) worldwide tour.

Africo Madrid, the minister of interior of Honduras, earlier told El Heraldo that Evangelical and Catholic leaders argue that Martin's nuclear family “is not the type of family that the laws of Honduras and the Honduran society wants to build and encourage to young people and the rest of the population.”

The officials must act to “protect the moral and ethical principles of our society,” Madrid added.

Martin came out gay last year on his blog – writing that he was “a fortunate homosexual man” – and subsequently talked about his experience in his memoir Me. The 39-year-old Martin lives with his boyfriend Carlos Gonzalez and his twin sons Mateo and Valentino.

Alberto Espinal told reporters on Friday that the restriction on Martin's concert is “to protect the mental health of Honduran youth.”

The singer's non-profit group Ricky Martin Foundation works to eliminate child sexual abuse and human trafficking in Latin American countries.
