In a 2011 interview with New York magazine about the new graphic novel "Mr. Murder Is Dead", Zachary Quinto admits that he is a “gay man”. Quinto also explains on his own blog that playing a gay man Louis Ironson who abandons his AIDS-stricken boyfriend in the off-Broadway play “Angels in America” helped him realize how lucky he was to be a gay man in this generation.
In addition, the "Star Trek" actor discussed the rumors about his sexuality after he successfully portrayed homosexual character in "Angels in America" stage production. The star wrote about the starring as the “most challenging thing I've ever done as an actor, and the most rewarding” and “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.”

Otherwise, he speaks passionately about gay marriage, “don’t ask, don’t tell” and the recent wave of gay bullying and suicides. The Heroes actor, in addition, acts in a one-night production of "Standing on Ceremony" at the El Portal Theatre in support of same-sex marriage and appears at the Los Angeles Gay and Lesbian Center’s annual gala.
