Zachary Quinto Comes Out
November 6, 2011 by staff
Zachary Quinto Comes Out, Three weeks ago, Sean Maher (Firefly, The Play boy Club) came out of the closet; over the weekend, Zachary Quinto – arguably the more famous of the two — did the same. It’s really interesting to note the differences in how it happened: Sean sat down with EW for a probing interview, while Zachary slipped that rather significant reveal into a larger profile piece with New York Magazine.
Then again, there’s been a lot of debate over Zachary’s sexuality in the last few years, so it’s as if he were already halfway toward admitting that he’s gay. For the longest time he wouldn’t comment either way, but then Jamey Rodemeyer‘s suicide changed everything. The 14-year-old recorded an “It Gets Better” video on YouTube sharing of his experiences being bullied for his sexuality, but about a month ago he took his own life.
That was when Zachary knew that he needed to be clear about his sexual orientation:
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.
