Earlier this summer, Spanish pop star Pablo Alborán made international headlines when he surprised everyone by coming out as gay.

The 31-year-old singer, best known for Spanish-language tunes “Solamente Tú,” “Dónde está el Amor,” and “Por Fin,” made the announcement to commemorate pride month in a video posted to Instagram.

“Today, I want my voice to be louder and for it to have more value and weight,” Alborán told his 5.7 million followers in June. “I’m here to tell you that I am homosexual and it’s OK. Life goes on, everything will remain the same, but I’m going to be a little happier than I already am.”

Prior to coming out, Alborán’s Instagram page had been relatively tame. It was mostly tasteful, PG-rated photos of himself working in the studio, performing on stage, or hanging out with his dog, with the occasional (very occasional) shirtless thirst trap.

Since coming out, however, Alborán has fully embraced his identity–and his sex appeal–by becoming a bona fide Instagay. We love seeing him be his authentic self… almost as much as we love seeing him in a swimsuit!

But don’t just take our word for it. See for yourself…

A star has most certainly been born, ladies and gentlemen.
