Trivia (5)

Lived in London for a time in the 1990s.
Studied veterinary science for three years before leaving to take a course in dramatic arts.
He married his long-term boyfriend, Roberto Cortés, four months after the law permitting gay marriage in Spain came into effect. The wedding was conducted by Trinidad Jiménez, the future cabinet minister for Latin America.
In 1993, he released the album "A Dos Mílimetros Escasos de tu Boca", and achieved a top 10 hit in Spain with the single "Y Yo Te Besé". The record earned a Spanish Gold disc certification.
In 1995, among other Spanish public figures like actors Jorge Cadaval or Javier Gurruchaga and others, he was accused of corruption of minors in what was known as the "Caso Arny". Several male teenage prostitutes testified that they were forced to prostitute in the gay pub Arny, located Seville, and implied several public figures as clients. Most of the accused, including Vázquez, were acquitted of all charges due to false testimony of the plaintiff, who assured they were pressured to say names of famous people on their testimony. This forced Vázquez to publicly declare his homosexuality and the case hurt his career at the time. Vázquez has later referred to it as a "gay witch hunt".
