Zachary Quinto: I Felt It Was My Time to Come Out

Zachary Quinto leaves an apartment building with some luggage on Tuesday (October 18) in New York City.

The 34-year-old actor recently chatted with Access Hollywood about his decision to come out.

“I just felt like it was my time, you know? I felt like it was a week of declarations for me. I’m declaring that I’m gay, I’m declaring that I want to be a serious contributor to the dialogues that are happening in the world right now. The way that I can do that is creatively,” he shared.

Zach added that he wasn’t thinking about whether his announcement might inspire other actors to come out, too.

“That’s their life and that’s their journey. Everybody has to get to a point in their own time in their own way. The thing that I’m most proud of in this entire situation is that’s exactly how I did this. It was on my terms, in my own words, and I’m really grateful for that,” he explained.
