With nearly 2.7 million followers on YouTube, Mexican actor/singer/social media star Alan Estrada has quite a platform. And the handsome 42-year old used it this week to open up about his sexuality.

He did so via Twitter, sharing that he is gay to show his support for his LGBTQ+ fans who find themselves feeling estranged from their families during the holidays because of their sexuality.
In the tweet he writes (translated by Google): “I never talk about my private life, my close circle knows that I am gay and I am surrounded by beautiful people. But this Christmas I have seen many people suffer because of their orientation and the rejection of their family. You are not alone, I celebrate you and you deserve to love and be loved. 🏳️‍🌈🏳️‍🌈🏳️‍🌈🏳️‍🌈.”
Estrada established himself as one of the Spanish-speaking world’s leading musical theater performers, making his name in “Hoy No Me Puedo Levantar ” in both Mexico and Spain in 2008. At that time he was named one of Mexico’s sexiest men by Queen Magazine. In 2014 he returned to that musical. Additionally, he has appeared in a number of films, reality shows, and soap operas in Mexico. His YouTube channel “Alan X El Mundo” began after he traveled to China. Subsequent trips to India, Cambodia, Morocco, England, and Iceland followed. More recently Estrada covered the opening of Pandora – The World of Avatar at Disney’s Animal Kingdom.

But his coming out has been shaded by his recent trip to homophobic Qatar for the World Games. “Verified My first world cup It is impressive to see how Mexicans pack the stadium #mexicomanda A World Cup full of controversies, but in the end I believe that the problems of a country like Qatar are becoming evident and this will probably be what will initiate the inevitable change. In my stories I share everything. Long live Mexico! Thank you @corona,” he wrote on IG.
“The singer was criticized and questioned for his interest in the members of the Mexican diversity community who are rejected by their families during the holiday season, after some resumed their posts on social networks celebrating their visit to the most famous sporting event in the world, something that was considered ‘ironic,'” writes the Mexican news site Infobae.

While he has yet to respond directly to those criticizing him for his Qatar post, he did tweet today: “Have no part in being questioned or attacked. I am here to learn. But I also have the right to differ in ideas, to defend mine and listen to others. Political trolls/bots and mean people are blocked without a word of change. In my stories I share everything. Long live Mexico! Thank you @corona_mx for inviting me!”
