    I think it's great that he came out, though. :cheer2:

    Not out, but not exactly in the closet either.

    I'm thrilled. Finally an actor I'm attracted to comes out! :cheer: In all seriousness, this had to be a hard call because he's so early in his career.

    Good for him. Is he still gonna be in the Star Trek sequel? I want to see if this will affect his work, pardon my cynicism.

    I thought it was a kind of open secret? As in, he wasn't "officially" out, but he didn't really go out of his way to hide it either.

    Anyways, good for him. It's really sad that this actually constitutes a risky career move in this day and age.

    Isn't it kind of sad that people still have to think about coming out or not or whatever?
    I don't know, something just feels wrong about that. A jazz teacher of mine was talking about "his partner" recently. Male partner as was obvious from what he said but he talked about him as another one mentions her husband and I think that's how it should be.
    Whether someone's with a he or she or an alien should matter only to the persons concerned, in my opinion, and there should be no need for coming out or not. No one has to come out about being straight, right? So why is it such a "big deal" that someone's gay? Love is love isn't it?

    I'm glad for him. Are he and Jonathan Groff still together? I know they've been photographed together several times.

    I thought he was out, too, but good for him for making it official. Speaking of fantasy....Zachary Quinto & Jonathan Groff? Are you effing kidding me?! Man, I feel like a jerk objectifying their collective hotness, but yowza squared :swoon:

    I completely agree, and I think one day we'll be there. Maybe when I'm chasing the hotties with my glittery pink walker. ;)

    Considering he has Leonard Nimoy's stamp of approval, I can't think who else they'd get.

    If you have a glittery pink walker we may be following you. Especially if it has silken ribbons hanging from it. Also a mirror ball.

    I take it you are unaware of the Kirk/Spock fan fic.

    I am shocked--shocked I tell you!--that Quinto is a man.

    (Am I the only one who found the wording odd? :shuffle: I'm all :cheer: for him publically coming out, and understanding that gender isn't necessarily binary, but, um. Yeah. "I'm gay" would say the same wouldn't it?)

    Sadly, for most public figures coming out is an extremely risky career move, which in the vast majority of cases doesn't pay off.

    If you're a hunky movie actor, you want to project a clean hut heterosexual image for your target audience and the sponsors.

    Same for singers, athletes, etc.

    It's a very sad state of affairs. Because even in places which are very tolerant, it's the same issue, as it's more the result of business/marketing and less of prejudice.

    That is great, then. His resemblance to Nimoy is uncanny.

    Can't say I have read it; most fanfic, IMO, is pretty wretchedly written stuff.

    OMG, this just made my freaking day! I've had my suspicions for a while and I'm so glad to find that they are true. :) I've been in love with him since So NoTORIous on VH1 and his role as Sylar on Heroes only made my infatuation grow stronger as he was my favorite character on that show. It doesn't hurt either that he is absolutely gorgeous and a beautiful human being as well. :swoon::cheer2:

    Rex - Speculation of the Kirk and Spock relationship was one of the original driving forces behind fan fic in the 1960's, and that little / was the origin of the term "slash fic".

    From your mouth to Spock's (ahem) ears. ;)

    Seriously, good for him. I feel sure that Mr. Nimoy, not to mention Mr. Takei, and the majority of Trek actors of any generation will be very proud of him.
