After a brief hiatus from showbiz last year which led to him coming out as bisexual last February, Alex Diaz has had a pretty momentous year as he finally felt comfortable enough to reveal his true sexuality to the public. Alex stars in the current iWant digital BL series Oh, Mando along with Kokoy de Santos.

The Oh, Mando! actor admits to being happy to be given another chance at acting after figuring in a scandal online after fitness instructor Miguel Chanco outed him by revealing an indecent proposal he received from Alex online. When Alex returned to the country after his two-month stay in Canada, Miguel issued a public apology which Alex accepted.

On his birthday last July 21, Alex shared why he chose not to plan any special celebration this year. The Kapamilya actor also spent his natal day working on the set of his digital series and admitted that he was already thankful for all the messages of support and greetings he received online all throughout the day. 

He wrote:

“BIRTHDAYS IN THE NEW NORMAL”

Bago matapos ang araw na to gusto ko lng mag pasalamat sainyong lahat. This year hindi ko tlga binalak mag celebrate ng birthday dahil sa lahat ng nangyayari sa mundo; from Covid to the closing of ABS-CBN and our dear frontliners at ABS-CBN employees to our Government and the frustrations I feel should take precedent over a mere birthday. I felt that letting my birthday go by without making it a big deal was just a the right thing to do. I didn’t feel bad, more like indifferent and at peace—Kasama na dun yung may trabaho ako sa araw na ito.
Masaya na ako, contento na ako pero lalo nyo pinasaya yung araw ko. From production, to my cast mates, my family and dearest friends in life to my amazing freaking fans,
maraming salamat sa lahat ng nagparamdam at sumurpresa sakin, I feel the love so deeply.  ️

Last year was a moment of extreme pressure and growth for me, this year is for you. Swipe to see a few of the messages I’ve received from brave guys and gals who are living their best lives as well as the awesome moments I’ve shared with my dear cast mates and prod family in the new normal.

Another year older, another year wiser, another year to listen, to learn, to help others the way I’ve been helped and to continue being better than I was the day before.

Thank you everyone, I mean that.

I owe this year, my life and my success to every single fan that has supported and stuck by me through the most transformative years of my life. I would be nothing without you.

I hope this inspires you to always live your life for yourself because all of you have inspired me to do just that.

All the love in the world,
Alex
