Diaz has been out his entire career, and the actor has never second-guessed his decision. ‘I never even thought about it,’ he recalls. ‘I was like, I’m just going to fuckin’ act. And it’s never been an issue. I’ve worked constantly.’ But his early managers objected. ‘After I did Stonewall, I was doing all this gay press. My managers wanted to put a halt on me being out,’ he says. ‘I just don’t have the patience for that shit. It seems like so much fuckin’ work to keep lying. I remember them saying, ‘We need to build up your body count.’ They wanted me to kill more people on film. I was like, ‘You guys would rather I kill more people on film than tell people I’m gay?’ Needless to say, I’m not with them anymore.’
