In the interview, Guillen also talks about becoming the plus-size sex symbol he always wanted to see. "My plus-size idols were John Candy and John Belushi. These were all Caucasian men," Guillen said. "I was like 'where's the plus-size, queer, Latino?' There wasn't. Now there is."
"I realized at a young age if you don't see yourself represented, then be the first," he also added. "No one left the door ajar for me...so I'll leave it wide open. Make a line, come on in!"
"This absolutely is a queer show," he said. "All the vampires are queer and we've not officially heard it from anyone who's human on the show, because they're dealing with human emotions. We're going to see [Guillermo] ask himself questions and that's okay. There's no expiration date on finding comfort in your own skin."
