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.

    Toni Says:

    OK!!! Time for me to also come out….. I’m…… heterosexual AND a monogamist. PHEW!!! got that of my chest!!!

    Donald – I agree with you 100%. Why do these people have to mention their sexual preferences? What in the hell has that got to do with their job?

    How many times is this dude going to come out this week, the public has known Zach was gay for years and at first yes how cool was it for him to finally admit he likes the ****. Now it’s just annoying and attention *****’ish, yes you are gay, we know, move on with your life Zach.

    Lucas Says:

    @Toni: First, sexuality is not a preference, it’s a life condition, so you don’t choose to be gay or straight . Second, their sexual orientation might not have anythng to do with their job, but the same way you are proud to say you are heterosexual when people ask you about it, he’s proud to say he’s gay. People’s sexual orientation is a private matter but if he wants to make it public, that’s his choice, that’s his right.

    I see all the homophobes are tripping all over themselves in their haste to post here.

    You haters are really disgusting with your “gays should keep their lives private” comment. Just because you’re so sick and twisted and homophobic that the only thing you can think of is sex when you see discussions about someone’s sexual identity doesn’t mean gay people should hide in the closet.

    Good for Zach for coming out

    I thought Zach and Jonathan were over? Is Zach just heading back to LA, or is he moving his stuff out of Groff’s place?????

    WE KNEW THAT HE WAS GAY ALL ALONG AND SO IS 90% OF HOLLYWOOD. WHO ARE YOU FOOLING! ALL OF A SUDDEN NOW THERE IS AN ANTI-BULLYING CAMPAIGN BECAUSE GAY KIDS WERE TEASED, BUT WHAT ABOUT ALL THE OTHER STRAIGHT KIDS WHO WERE TEASED AND BULLIED ALL THESE YEARS WHO KILLED THEMSELVES??!!! THAT’S WHY HOLLYWOOD AND THIS MEDIA IS FULL OF BULLSHIT! AND BTW, JUST BECAUSE SOMEONE DOESN’T SUPPORT THE GAY LIFESTYLE, DOESN’T MEAN THEY ARE HOMOPHOBIC! MY RELIGION SPEAKS AGAINST HOMOSEXUAL ACTS BETWEEN MEN AND BETWEEN WOMEN AND BESTIALITY! THEREFORE, NO ONE WILL EVER MAKE ME LOOSE MY RELIGION – SO CALL ME ALL THE NAMES YOU WANT. I DON’T TEASE GAY PEOPLE, I DON’T DISCRIMINATE, BUT I DO NOT SUPPORT OR RECOGNIZE THEIR MARRIAGE RELIGIOUSLY. AND I DO NOT ENCOURAGE THEIR LIFESTYLE! JUST LIKE I DON’T SUPPORT BESTIALITY OR HAVING SEX WITH ANYONE UNDER THE AGE OF 18! I DON’T CARE WHAT THE AGE OF CONSENT IS LEGALLY – ONCE YOU ARE AN ADULT, GO F**K AS MUCH AS YOU WANT, BUT LEAVE UNDERAGE KIDS ALONE!

    AND GAY PEOPLE NEED TO RESPECT PEOPLE’S RELIGIOUS VIEWS BECAUSE THEY WILL NEVER AND I REPEAT NEVER CHANGE THE BIBLE JUST SO YOU GAY PEOPLE CAN FEEL BETTER ABOUT YOUR ACTS! IF GAY PEOPLE RESPECT RELIGION THEN RELIGIOUS PEOPLE WILL RESPECT GAY PEOPLE!

    BUT BACK TO HOLLYWOOD, MORE OF THESE GAY MEN AND WOMEN NEED TO COME OUT! THEY WILL HAVE LESS STRESS AND WILL STOP WASTING STRAIGHT PEOPLE’S TIME.

    wtf? Says:

    @Ava:

    Cool your damn jets, why is this such a big deal, this guy coming out? This guy hasn’t done anything special, has he cured cancer? No, Has he cured AIDS? No. he just announced, omg I am such a special snowflake because I happen to be into men (after lying about his sexuality for years much to the annoyance of the gay community who hated the fact that he was in the closet). I met this Zach guy years ago, yeah and it was pretty obivious then. NPH is a gay role model, Zach, not so much.

    Okay Zachary, congrats on escaping your glass closet, next….

    Ack!! Why do I only ever see guys wearing MY New Balance?

    Elizabeth Says:

    @Toni:

    Because, it is automatically assumed the person is straight. Then the person, who doesn’t clarify, is allowing a false believe to continue. Since 90% of the world is straight, theres no need to “come out” as straight. But if you were a part of the 10% you would realize that it is something you have to tell people or else it is assumed you are a part of the 90%.

    Also, with all of the recent death of teens due to social pressures regarding being gay, there is a certain responsibility to stand up and say “I am gay too” and support those being held down or bullied because they are gay or perceived gay.

    @Lucas:
    When did sexuality become a life condition. Do you think I can a check for it like social security when i get old. Please sit the fvk down somewhere.
