Coming off a performance on stage in Angels in America - playing a character who abandons his AIDS-stricken boyfriend - Quinto spoke to New York Magazine this week and said the off-Broadway play was "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."

Quinto will next be seen on the FX drama American Horror Story.

Good for him. Sure, it's not like this news is a surprise to anyone, but I think it's commendable that he is open & honest. This could give gay kids who might be struggling with bullies or unsympathetic parents another role model to look up to.
