Sebastián Ligarde has decided to come out of the closet -- proudly declared he is gay in the latest issue of Mexico’s TVyNovelas magazine.

The 59-year-old Mexican soap star, and famous villain in the telenovela "Quinceañera," told the magazine: “I'm gay and I say this with pride. No gay person should have to walk down the street with stigma stamped on his forehead. Sexual [orientation] is genetic... and if God and my family knows it, then let the world know it.
