Oscar Madrazo opened up his life to viewers on Mexican Dynasties, sharing that he is the first gay man to have children via surrogate in Mexico and revealing glimpses of his search for a romantic partner. He's been out to the world for years, but his self-discovery started from within.
"First of all, you have to come out to yourself which is the most difficult part because you have ideas running in your mind of what you’re feeling and what you’re attracted to," he told Personal Space. "But I was very comfortable with girlfriends, going out with girls. But back in my mind I knew that I was feeling a stronger attraction to men and once I got the first kiss I knew that it was something very different and very intense."
Once he admitted it to himself, he told a close pal.
"I told one friend that I was feeling something different and she said, 'Now that you’re gay we’re going to do this and that' ... She said it so naturally that I felt so easy and free. I felt so comfortable and that's the way I want people to see it and understand it because, first of all, you have to love yourself and once you are good and fine with yourself things start happening magically around and everything turns very positive."
His own experience has given him a solid place from which to offer advice for how to come out.
"First of all, guys, it’s very easy for you in 2019 because it’s normal in the world," he said. "It’s so easygoing, so much acceptance, so much love, so much support from everyone, from people, from human beings, from media. You can reflect yourself from the small screen or the big screen. And we can talk about it so naturally, with so much love, with so much everything. For me, loving myself the way I am, it’s easy because you feel very comfortable in this world.
And you always have to fight for your rights and fight for your respect because it’s something you’re not going to ask for, you’re going to get it because it’s yours. So have it in your hand and be as free and happy as you have to be because this is your world, your life, and this world is for everyone, not for people who decide it's just for them. It's for everyone and it’s for you."
