All Stars 5 filmed a year ago, so this timing is incredible - I guess Alexis Mateo really... saw that coming.

I don’t speak a lick of Spanish, but let me tell you, when this man came on at the laundromat you best believe I was listening for the word Aquario.

Netflix is really coming through for Latinos! This is the kind of thing we need right now. I showed this trailer to my 80 year old mother, and at first she didn't quite understand, but she lit up.... I then explained that this was a documentary about his life, and that it's coming to Netflix. Once she understood, she literally cried. This is how much Walter meant to her, to the Latin community. And it's not the astrology thing either, it goes so much deeper than that! Walter Mercado IS the Latin community!

He was literally the first homosexual /gender fluid latino on major tv and he was LOVED by an audience who literally still to this day is largely slightly homophobic. THATS HOW MUCH OF A CULTURAL ICON WALTER MERCADO IS.

Soo basically he was The Latin Liberace of Astrology!

The reason why this guy got so famous is that he has a soothing voice and will always encourage people and send them positive messages like peace and love. That’s why everybody loves him.
ELTON JOHN : *I’m the flashiest star on the planet nay IN ALL ENTERTAINMENT HISTORY*

I had no idea who this was until Alexis Mateo did him on Snatch Game. She got him really bang on
I’m not Latino but if you lived in New York you knew who Walter Mercado was, I grew up seeing him on television. I will be watching this documentary 💚🌺🤙🏾

I have a confession to make. I used to think he was my grandma. My mother would shut everyone up when he would come on. I realized he wasn’t my grandma when I turned 8 and I found out he was actually a dude when I was 18. FFS his name is WALTER and I’m over here thinking he is a elegant woman 😂
Just came to see who he was after watching Drag Race all stars.
He died the day before my grandmother’s death in the same exact hospital Auxilio Mutuo and same exact floor , seeing this gave me the chills.

Alice Mestria:
I had no idea who he was, just finished watching de documentary and I’m so emotional... I had no idea he passed only 3 months after the exhibition, it felt like he needed to be surrounded by the love of his fans one last time. As you watch it you get attached to his loving personality... I smiled and cried. I adore him now and I don’t believe in God and I don’t believe in astrology but I felt “mucho mucho amor” and that’s the whole point... may his message resonate on everyone, it would be a better world in a second.
I remember as a child how everyone would stop what they were doing to watch him on TV. Even men working on their cars stopped and rushed inside to watch. Walter Mercado was the greatest!
Who else is here because of Alexis Mateo?
This dude was so next level.. Total rock star life.....
Who's here after watching Alexis Mateo as Walter during Snatch Game on Drag Race!
P D:
he wasnt just famous among hispanics. i remember him from my childhood in brazil. he used to speak portuguese with a strong hispanic accent and had this catch phrase, "ligue já" that every brazilian knew. now i dont think the new generations know him here, but he was sooo famous.
Here in Germany we never knew about him. I discovered some memes over the years and always thought "what an interesting person that is", but never bothered. Now I watched the film and by the end, I was in tears. Such a personality, so much kindness, and a message that will never ever grow old. A true legend, in many ways.

This trailer make me a little emotional because we grew up with Walter Mercado, we learned so much from him and we didn't even know it. He was an ICON, he was exactly what he wanted to be and he didn't apologize for it. Y lo más importante de todo, siempre nos deseó paz, mucha paz pero sobretodo mucho, mucho amor.

Mr Idk Ortiz:
Just got done watching this. I don't usually get touched emotionally in movies but this one really got to me.
Just like any Hispanic child growing up with a mother and brothers of 4 I remember my mother being obsessed watching his shows and I grew up watching it with her.
Didn't know how much he went through to get where he was until they tried to destroy him. He lived a good life and he loved what he did for us the people.
Rest In Peace Walter Mercado you will be missed!

Omgosh I just learned about him on Drag Race!!
My mom had Walter Mercado read her future before he was super famous and he said she'd married a divorced man and have two daughters. It was all accurate, people.

I use to see Walter Mercado on Univision television and on television during my visits to Puerto Rico. As a person of Puerto Rican ancestry born in New York City and living in Washington, D.C., seeing Walter Mercado on television was both fascinating and funny. I enjoyed watching the documentary of his life on Netflix because I learn things that I never knew about Walter Mercado. Even today when I am joking with my Puerto Rican, Afro Cuban, and Dominican friends, I always say Mucho Mucho Amor and we all breakout with laughter. This was Walter's trademark saying on Spanish television. RIP, Walter; Dios te bendiga.
Carlos Bright
Carlos Bright:
Solía ​​ver a Walter Mercado en la televisión de Univisión y en la televisión durante mis visitas a Puerto Rico. Como una persona de ascendencia puertorriqueña nacida en la ciudad de Nueva York y viviendo en Washington, D.C., ver a Walter Mercado en televisión fue fascinante y divertido. Disfruté viendo el documental de su vida en Netflix porque aprendo cosas que nunca supe de Walter Mercado. Incluso hoy, cuando bromeo con mis amigos puertorriqueños, afrocubanos y dominicanos, siempre digo Mucho Mucho Amor y todos nos echamos a reír. Este era el dicho característico de Walter en la televisión española. RIP, Walter; Dios te bendiga.
My mom would watch this man religiously when I was younger. Now I’m almost 30 and still have no idea about him and am excited Netflix is doing a little documentary about him to learn about him! Thank you!

Alexis Mateo predicted this!! Whats even MORE interesting is that he died at a hospital named “Auxilio Mutuo” very similar to Alexis Mateo 😳 ... What in the Drag Moon and Stars is going on here!
I’m in my thirties now and I remember every time Walter would come on the screen, it’s like he gravitated energy and attention from everybody in the room. Granted, I didn’t understand horoscopes as a kid but I very well knew there was something special about him. He for sure had a gift. Te extrañamos señor Walter.

Netflix, someone needs to be working on something like this for Chespirito (I hope). Latin TV ICONS! Our heritage, our history needs this kind of documentaries. Whether you like Walter or not, no one can't denied his Latino Pop Culture status and his gigantic influence in our TV culture. Same with Roberto Gomez Bolaños aka Chespirito. This are our icons, our pioneers, our creative TV innovators and wall breakers. We need this as well for our music Icon. I was never a Walter fan, never once watch his show, but I knew who he was, his influence in our media landscape and culture and so I know We need this! ... we need more of this for all our icons or latin TV. Let's start telling our own stories, we have enough subjects and stories of our own. PLEASE!

Mr Bananahamock:
I was a child but I loved watching his segment on Primer Impacto, everyone in the house stayed quiet listening to him read the signs lol 😂 family time
I remember seeing him on the tv as a child and not having one clue what he was talking about. I thought he was a psychic or a sorcerer of sorts. It kind of scared me not gonna lie. It wasn’t until til I got older that I came to realize what was going on with his segments. It takes me back to the days as a child in my great grandmas hot and stuffy small apartment that always reeked of stale perfume. His memory forever lives on in my mind. RIP Walter Mercado
