In the new issue of New York MagazineStar Trekand Heroes star Zachary Quinto comes out of the closet, proclaiming: I'm a gay man.
While talking about his role in the seminal play,Angels in America, which chronicles the early days of the AIDS crisis, Zachary calls it "the most challenging thing I've ever done as an actor and the most rewarding."
Adding, "At the same time, 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 there you have it, the simplest Hollywood coming out to date. No People Magazine cover, proclaiming: "I'M GAY" in giant pink letters. No snarky outing by the press (although Quinto's sexuality is hardly a secret in Hollywood). Simply a man mentioning his sexual orientation with the ease and quiet fanfare this act has becoming synonymous with lately.
UPDATE: Zachary just posted this message on his personal website:

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. our society needs to recognize the unstoppable momentum toward unequivocal civil equality for every gay lesbian bisexual and transgendered citizen of this country. gay kids need to stop killing themselves because they are made to feel worthless by cruel and relentless bullying. parents need to teach their children principles of respect and acceptance. we are witnessing an enormous shift of collective consciousness throughout the world. we are at the precipice of great transformation within our culture and government. i believe in the power of intention to change the landscape of our society - and it is my intention to live an authentic life of compassion and integrity and action. jamey rodemeyer's life changed mine. and while his death only makes me wish that i had done this sooner - i am eternally grateful to him for being the catalyst for change within me. now i can only hope to serve as the same catalyst for even one other person in this world. that - i believe - is all that we can ask of ourselves and of each other. zq.
