Federico Díaz, Uruguayan Actor Linked to Ricky Martin, Comes Out as Gay


Uruguay actor Federico Díaz has come out as gay in a post on Twitter.

Says Díaz, as translated by Latin Times:

"The day has come! Only God knows when and how. I only let myself be guided. I feel that God has awarded me with homosexuality, the sensation of confusion that I had and the uncertainty throughout the years of knowing who I really am has been left behind. Today I am starting to walk a new life, with no ties, no lies, no annoyances or pain, due to the fact that these feelings only depress and generate anguish in the heart. I came to this Earth to be HAPPY, to hug, to realize dreams, to take care of my loved ones and to leave a positive footprint in life. I am gay and I am sharing this with respect, love and gratitude to everyone that gives meaning to my life. Thank you for everything and together we will achieve more. I love you all very much."

Díaz was linked to Ricky Martin in February, in a report that alleged he was behind Martin's break-up with his longtime partner:

While Martin, who is working on his World Cup song with Sony, has not responded to the allegation, Diaz was quick to deny the report between him and the Boricua.

“TV y Novelas magazine published an article without any foundation and based on lies, with photos extracted from my personal Twitter and Instagram accounts, speculating and misinforming the public,” Diaz said in a statement. “This printed media wrote that it is confirming something that is far from the truth and with bad intention, and I truly don’t understand why … before I have always received love and respect from the press and I have given the same.”

  5. Uruguayan men are great looking, and are great people. And Uruguay is an easy place to be out and proud. Definitely worth a visit. Congrats to Fede for living his truth.

  8. After being linked with Diaz, Ricky was supposed to be with Pablo Alborán. Of course there were obvious reasons for Ricky a Pablo spending time together because Ricky is collaborating in Pablo's album (Pablo is a fan of Ricky for a long time).

    As in the case of Diaz, Alborán is gay, but giving the fact that he is only of the only few that is really selling albums in Spain i doubt he will come of the closet anytime soon

  9. Beautiful smile-and, if his press release is any indication, a beautiful spirit/soul.

  10. Ricky was pretty unremarkable as a "Dancing With The Stars" judge. He looked old and tired. He couldn't take his eyes off of Maxim though. Shirtless Max wasn't tired. Neither was pretty, shirtless James. You must watch this ridiculous show. Derek Hough is amazing.

  11. The seque to Derek Hough is amazing and hilarious.
