It was revealed on Zachary Quinto's official blog, that he has been living as a gay man and had finally decided to come out of the closet. It was the suicide of Jamey Rodemeyer and other gay teenagers that finally convinced him to reveal himself publicly, he said on his blog:

"when i found out that jamey rodemeyer killed himself - i felt deeply troubled. but when i found out that jamey rodemeyer had made an it gets better video only months before taking his own life - i felt indescribable despair. i also made an it gets better video last year - in the wake of the senseless and tragic gay teen suicides that were sweeping the nation at the time. but in light of jamey's death - it became clear to me in an instant that 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. "

Quinto has starred in the successful show 'Heroes' playing the superpowered villain Sylar aswell as landing a lead role in the remake of 'Star Trek' as Spock, a role which boosted Leonard Nimoy to fame. I am very very happy that Zachary Quinto has finally made it public, it is surely going to inspire more people to stand up and be counted, without fear.

Here is his 'It Gets Better' video.

'Immortals' star Luke Evans came out of the closet years ago and now he's trying to go back in .. but I hope he comes out again!

Woah!:o Sylar just got way less intimidating. lol Just joking. Dont care still a good Spock.
CherryBomb - 10/16/2011, 12:21 PM
@ncreb I agree! society focuses too much on labels, sexuality shouldn't matter, I'm bisexual and people still have stigma against that, I wish more people would be accepting,

but now a sorta, 'Hollywood' star has come out, it will hopefully inspire more actors to come out.
CapA - 10/16/2011, 12:23 PM
Good for him ! I hope it'll help other people along the way. :)

Still an awesome actor, so more power to him if he feels it need be said... Otherwise, keep going with the awesome career Zach!

Thats Good for the Dude.. But what does this have to do with ComicBook movies??
CherryBomb - 10/16/2011, 12:37 PM
@BATMAN1X Well, Star Trek's always featured on here, it was some 'news' I guess, so I thought it should be known to the community on here. (:

Go erotic fan fiction writers! To your keyboards! A new world of sexual Star Trek fantasies await you!

But in all seriousness, good for him.
elcaballerooscuro92 - 10/16/2011, 12:41 PM

AutobotCommander84 - 10/16/2011, 12:45 PM
May he live well and prosper.
Christuffer - 10/16/2011, 1:03 PM
Seriously.....?


@Sorcerer123 I totally agree.


As long as being a homo doesn't affect his performance, he can do whatever he wants. Just make more Star Trek, and we is cool homeslice
Christuffer - 10/16/2011, 1:04 PM
Oh, and why do all the good looking guys wind up gay? lol
CherryBomb - 10/16/2011, 1:12 PM

@Fartman I know, totally! I have a huge crush of Zach, gay or not, I will get him one day :3

jazzman - 10/16/2011, 1:46 PM

CherryBomb - 10/16/2011, 1:49 PM
@teabag thank you! I'm so glad it was Zachary Quinto that popped my 'cherry' - so to speak. ;)
RunDTC - 10/16/2011, 2:01 PM
@EarthToOle: gay people DO make themselves gay. no one is born gay.
Nexus6 - 10/16/2011, 2:05 PM
yep it's definitely not a choice! jack and jill went up the hill so jack could lick jill's fanny. but jack got a shock and a gob full of cock, cos jill's a fricking tranny!;)
jazzman - 10/16/2011, 2:13 PM
@RunDTC

their are people who are born gay. u can tell with some kids that they going to be gay in the future.
Nexus6 - 10/16/2011, 2:13 PM
gay people are gay dude, nothing to do with environment
Nexus6 - 10/16/2011, 2:14 PM
@ jazzman, yep, spot on!
PaulRom - 10/16/2011, 2:14 PM
@CherryBomb Nice job on your first article ;)
Personally, I don't care if someone's gay or not. I don't agree with the lifestyle, but it still exists and I can't do anything about it. As for Quinto, at least he's being honest about his sexuality.
RunDTC - 10/16/2011, 2:15 PM
@EarthToOlu: I mean, people are not born gay. they decide themselves that they are gay.
PaulRom - 10/16/2011, 2:21 PM
@RunDTC I agree, whether or not someone is gay is completely up to them. Sure they may feel more attracted to the same sex than the opposite, but I don't think that means they're born gay, persay. The way I see it, it's like being hungry, but whether or not you eat is up to you. (may not be the best comparison)
CherryBomb - 10/16/2011, 2:24 PM
@PaulRom Fair enough! atleast you're honest. (:
and thank you! ^_^
NextHero08 - 10/16/2011, 2:25 PM
Nice, very nice.
Nexus6 - 10/16/2011, 2:28 PM
@rundtc, why would anyone choose to be gay, unless they're lady gaga's friends?;)
jazzman - 10/16/2011, 2:31 PM
@RunDTC

nah man they can be born gay the only time they decide if they want to come out and say they gay. but with a few young kids u can see they have homosexual side to them
