A documentary on gay nightlife impresario Mario Diaz, who you may recognize from his appearance in ‘Rambo, But Gay’ or from the neon nightlife he has become such a staple of, will debut at the Miami Gay and Lesbian Film Festival on May 8, according to OUT Magazine. ‘Club King’ focuses on Diaz’s life as a club promoter extraordinaire, permanently surrounded by glitz and go-go-boys. Reflecting on how he came to his line of work, Diaz says,
“When I was in high school and I was young and I knew I was going to end up in New York City one day, I remember thinking, ‘Wow!’ That’s what it’s like to really be gay and be in the gay city. And you know these underground clubs and this freedom of sexuality—it just seemed so exciting and cool and I wanted to be part of it.”
The film also features Mario (perhaps inadvertently) imparting tips and life lessons to the audience—i.e. “Remember, the slower you dance the hotter it is.”
