Latin Heartthrob Federico Díaz, Once Linked To Ricky Martin, Comes Out Publicly

fede2The 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.”

—  Uruguayan actor and model Federico Díaz, at one time thought to have been consoling Ricky Martin after the recent break-up of his longtime relationship, came out publicly by posting a note to his Twitter account

  • asby

    so yet another non relevant “celebrity” that should of came outta the closet 10 years ago

  • Billy Budd

    Ricky has good taste. Money gives you good taste.

  • JJinAus

    god, god, god. Really? Is this the lube that helps you emerge from the closet?

  • rickyboi7

    double the pleasure…

  • brianmovie

    WOW you have to love latin men!

  • Desert Boy


  • ddean

    Those pits! Wow

  • bmwblonde

    Yes Diaz IS beautiful (a stunner).

    AND, I can only be grimly amused by the posts here which all reflect the stunningly shallow nature of the 2D gay ghetto, i.e., fixation on physicality only.

    Did none of you clodhoppers READ Diaz’ coming out essay? THAT’s the inner source of his overall beauty — his heart. Nary a comment here about that, but of course, what would one expect from little gay-boys who have “bought” (hook line and sinker) American society’s overall staggering superficiality and focus on sensuality alone.

    To Senor Diaz: Yes, “woof,” but far more, congratulations on a beautiful, and beautifully written manifesto of freedom.

    I heard that Ricky and him are dating. I have always
    Wanted another handsome, famous, rich, kind man for Ricky Martin,
    I will settle for Federico Diaz, he is handsome, and seems nice.
    Can’t wait to see them together in the red carpet. I am
    Glad that he found the courage to come out. I always
    Going to be eternally grateful for Ricky to come out, and change
    The image for the LGBT people in the Latin countries.

  • Billy Budd

    He is a REAL man. I would let him top me as much and as often as he wanted. I’m sure Ricky did the same.

  • TrekBear

    !Que bien papi y muchas felicidades al hombre guapisimo!

  • mcflyer54

    @bmwblonde – you do realize that these photos (all posed and mostly professional) elicit exactly the response for which they were intended? And I find it more than ironic that this implied accusation of shallowness comes from someone with the ID ” bmwblonde”.

  • Mykey

    Is it only me, or doesn’t he look like Ricky’s brother?

  • rickyboi7

    @Mykey: YES!

  • rickyboi7

    @brianmovie: OMG yes, I couldn’t wait until he pulled the trigger.

  • pscheck2

    He makes a statement that I wish other ‘outed’ gay actors would make.”God has awarded me with homosexuality…” In other words he is proud to be homosexual, not ‘conditionally’ homosexual! Most ‘outed’ actors make it seem to be gay is a burden they had to put up with all their lives and only because they could not keep up the lying, they came out! In other words they are ‘out’ not because they are proud of this fact, but because they are forced to accept the reality of their sexuality and hope things get back to norm so they can continue their acting career. IMHO.

  • Mikah

    He’s hot.I’m sure God had a boner when making him.

  • Billy Budd

    @pscheck2: Very good point.

  • Billy Budd

    @Mikah: Why do you think God created so many hot men? I’m sure it was not for the women, because all women care about is security and commitment. Men care about beauty. IMHO.

  • rickyboi7

    and God created Ricky

  • Sebizzar

    Eh… God…

    But congrats to him. I really wish guys would start accepting themselves sooner. I know it’s not easy, and depends on your life story, but I’m so tired of meeting guys and having their closeted-ness get in the way of things.

  • James Hart

    Who is he??? Never heard of him.

  • Kenover

    He posted this on Twitter? That’s way more than 140 characters.

  • Winterizcumming

    He is hot but not as hot as my glitch man!! I so want to get in the glitch man’s pants, the other day he had ona pair of jeans that drove me crazy all day at work. Each time he came in my office I wanted to drop to myknees. One day winter will CUM!!!

  • Dipest

    I wonder why they come out when they are already known? Does fame protect? Would they if they were not famous yet? Many girls forgave R.M. for coming out, why? because he was already famous?

  • elgreek

    Wow, He sure got more handsome as he got a little older. Just look at those pictures. I wish him all the luck and best of health in the world!

  • Rob Moore

    I need to learn to speak Spanish.

  • Craig Shapiro

    Congratulations and Bravo! Your courage in honoring the gift of who you are will help to shine a brighter light on the path of the magnificence of being proud of who we are.

  • Bob Pattinson

    Handsome, buff and gay. He won the lottery!

  • Kirk Montrealer

    Some guys have ALL the looks..damn !!!! <3

  • Robert Young

    Damn! He upgraded!!!! Hot hot!

  • Jay Smith

    Gorgeous man. He should get with Ricky Martin!!!

  • Texas Guy

    Love the pic of him checking himself out in those tight jeans! goddamn… he’s fine!

  • pudman56

    He and Ricky would make a beautiful couple.

  • missuniverse

    Federico Diaz or Ricky Martin ?
    I wonder which one is the “Bottom” ?

  • pscheck2

    By far, I think Frederico is the sexier and more appealing of the two! I can’t imagine that Ricky was the only one in his life. I’ll bet both sexes hit on him when he was in his teens! Sugar daddy? He don’t impress me as being someone’s ‘kept person. He has too much class. Has he made other films with a gay theme?
