We’re happy to share that things are looking up for Alexander Diaz.

Back in October, we shared the unfortunate story of Alex Diaz with you all. The Filipino-Scottish actor had been outed as bisexual. The actor had started up a private text conversation with online fitness coach Miguel Lagman Chanco, but Chanco wasn’t comfortable with the conversation’s subject matter. He then decided to share screenshots of the private Instagram chat with other social media users.

The screenshots show that Diaz had asked Chanco if he “accepted indecent proposals.” Chanco responded no and Diaz quickly apologized. The actor then asked for Chanco to not share the conversation with others. Clearly, Chanco did not listen.

tingin malayooo goood morning, Episode 3 The Open Forum goes live on my channel today, also editing episode 4 and a travel vlog from my trip to Canmore! #linkinbio 🙂 📣disclaimer📣 In lieu of my recent discovery of the controversy surrounding Canada Goose’s production practices, I feel the need to say that I do not purchase nor do I own any Canada Goose products. Our shoot location was very very cold and it was sundown at the time and I was without a suitable jacket so my friends lent me their jacket for this photo hence the smudged out logos. Although that does not justify wearing the jacket in this photo, it has opened the avenue for discussion on supporting unethical brands. As a consumer, its our job to only support sustainable and ethical brands. More than the tags and the price, I want to start making sure that I am only giving my money to brands with ethical practices. writing this post has made me increasingly aware that I do not do enough research into the clothing I wear. If you, like myself would like to start, try downloading the app, Good On You—where you can check the practices of the clothes you wear 🤘🏻 📸 @d.k_e

The leaked chat ultimately led to Alex Diaz having to come out publicly as a bisexual man.

“I ask forgiveness from my management, the brands, supporters, friends, my family and everyone else I let down by what I did and/or who I am,” he wrote on Instagram after being outed. “Im sorry, I was wrong in my actions and failed to uphold the values I so strongly try to convey online. It was not my intention to hurt anyone or elude the truth of who I am for all these years but rather a showbiz decisions based on the state of our nation in regards to acceptance and representation of who I am.”

He then added, “But I sincerely thank everyone for not failing to remind me that I am human and that I too am loved.”

thank you for the thousands of messages of love and support all over twitter and my message requests here on instagram. I am going to release a full statement when the time is right but for now I would just like to say sorry and thank you. I ask forgiveness from my management, the brands, supporters, friends, my family and everyone else I let down by what I did and/or who I am. Im sorry, I was wrong in my actions and failed to uphold the values I so strongly try to convey online. It was not my intention to hurt anyone or elude the truth of who I am for all these years but rather a showbiz decisions based on the state of our nation in regards to acceptance and representation of who I am. But I sincerely thank everyone for not failing to remind me that I am human and that I too am loved. —Never again will I be shackled by the fear of what might be said about who I am for fear of losing my career and instead, I will seek help, heal and champion change, acceptance and representation for the bisexual community and/or anyone who is met with prejudice in our society. I see now that my actions are not caused by but rather the effect of the unhealthy and toxic suppression of all of who I am as a human being. Im in a better place now. My passion is performing, making people happy & making people smile. My only hope is that I can continue to use this platform to do such in whatever new path this universe-given experience has opened up for me. For now, I will rest, reevaluate and come back stronger and better than ever. I love you all, I have learned and I am growing. thank you. 🌱🏳️‍🌈⚤

But two months later, Alex Diaz has shared with the world that coming out has actually helped him. Immediately after coming out, Diaz took a break from the spotlight and took a trip to Canada. But while taking that quick break, Diaz was met with a round of project proposals. It appears that his being outed and officially coming out resulted in executives looking his way. He now says he has gained 4 acting projects.

“Im literally living my dreams and everything is exactly as it should be in my head,” Diaz told fans through social media. “So if you’re feeling alone like its not going to get better. Just rmmbr that I got you and ima make sure it never stays hard for ppl like u [sic].”

We’re happy to hear that Alexander Diaz is doing better. Congratulations!
