Zachary Quinto Gay
Quinto publicly came out as gay in October 2011. He explained that, after the suicide of gay teenager Jamey Rodemeyer, he realized “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.” Before his coming out, Quinto had long been an active supporter of gay rights and organizations, including the Trevor Project.
In 2009, Quinto appeared in the one-night production Standing on Ceremony: The Gay Marriage Plays, a benefit staged reading in response to the passing of Proposition 8, as well as in the play The Laramie Project: 10 Years Later, about the 1998 murder of Matthew Shepard. In 2010, he contributed a video to the It Gets Better Project, an Internet-based campaign that aims to prevent suicide among LGBT youth. In 2012, he campaigned on behalf of Barack Obama, including appearing in the video Obama Pride: LGBT Americans For Obama.
In 2017, Quinto criticized the timing of actor Kevin Spacey’s decision to come out as part of his response to allegations of sexual advances toward then-14-year-old actor Anthony Rapp. Quinto called the manner of Spacey’s announcement “deeply sad and troubling”, feeling he had not stood up “as a point of pride – in the light of all his many awards and accomplishments – thus inspiring tens of thousands of struggling LGBTQ kids around the world”, but instead as “a calculated manipulation to deflect attention from the very serious accusation that he attempted to molest one.”

Zachary Quinto Star Trek | Zachary Quinto Spock
Quinto played roles as Spock in the reboot Star Trek (2009) and its sequels Star Trek Into Darkness (2013) and Star Trek Beyond (2016). His casting as a young Spock in the Star Trek film franchise was officially announced at the 2007 Comic-Con. Speaking alongside Leonard Nimoy at a press conference to promote the first new Star Trek film, Zachary Quinto revealed that Nimoy had been given casting approval over who would play the role of the young Spock. “For me, Leonard’s involvement was only liberating, frankly,” says Quinto. “I knew that he had approval over the actor that would play young Spock, so when I got the role I knew from the beginning it was with his blessing.”
In a September 2008 interview, J. J. Abrams said of Quinto’s performance as Spock: “Zachary brought a gravity and an incredible sense of humor, which is a wonderful combination because Spock’s character is deceivingly complicated. The revelation for me watching the movie, when I finally got to watch the whole thing after working on sequences, was that he is extraordinary. He was doing things I didn’t even realize while we were shooting – these amazing things to track his story.”
Quinto also made references to Star Trek’s historical record for diversity and inclusiveness in its casting and storylines and said that he hoped the looming election of Barack Obama would build that dynamic towards the film’s May 2009 release date. In 2013, Quinto reprised his role of Spock in Star Trek Into Darkness and in Star Trek Beyond, released in 2016.
