Zachary Quinto comes out: I'm 'a gay man'

Zachary Quinto comes out: I'm 'a gay man'

By Ann Oldenburg, USA TODAY



Zachary Quinto, who was Dr. Spock in J.J. Abrams' Star Trek film and was launched to fame in Heroes, has played a series of gay roles, including on Tori Spelling's TV show So NoTORIous, and on the new FX series American Horror Story, and he has been outspoken about gay-rights issues.

But when asked to comment on speculation about his sexuality as recently as last year, he declined, saying he preferred "not to feed the rumor mill with either substantiation or dismissal."

That has changed, reports New York magazine. In an interview, Quinto, 34, has come out, referring to himself twice "as a gay man."

The first time he was talking about performing in Broadway play Angels in America, "... 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."

And the second was when he was asked about gay marriage and gay bullying. "And again, as a gay man I look at that 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."

Quinto blogged about it on Sunday, saying "living a gay life without publicly acknowledging it - is simply not enough to make any significant contribution to the immense work that lies ahead on the road to complete equality."

Interesting. Sylar was the reason I stopped watching Heroes. Too twisted for my taste.

Not quite on the same level of "DUH, what took you so long" like Ricky Martin, but almost everyone already knew.

I join the others in expressing my lack of surprise, and happiness for him having the courage do this.
