Zachary Quinto Comes Out

To Boldly Go

 

“Doing that play [Angels in America] made me realize how lucky I was to be born when I was born and to not have to witness the decimation of an entire generation of amazingly talented and otherwise vital men … [It was] the most challenging thing I’ve ever done as an actor and the most rewarding … And at the same time, as a gay man, it made me feel like there’s still so much work to be done, and there’s still so many things that need to be looked at and addressed … I look at [suicides following bullying] and say there’s a hopelessness that surrounds it, but as a human being I look at it and say ‘Why? Where’s this disparity coming from, and why can’t we as a culture and society dig deeper to examine that?’ We’re terrified of facing ourselves.”Zachary Quinto to New York Magazine, confirming tons of Internet speculation about his sexuality, doing what straight people never have to do: publicly verify their sexual orientation. He’s absolutely right: there’s still so much work to be done.
