Trekkies are having a big ole orgasm right now. Zachary Quinto and Leonard Nimoy leaving the ‘Red’ Los Angeles Opening Night Performance held at The Mark Taper Forum in Los Angeles, California last night (August 12, 2012).
Zachary’s boyfriend, actor Jonathan Groff, is s encouraging other gay stars to come out, insisting his decision to be open about his sexuality has not hurt his career.
He tells Out magazine, “I sort of always knew, in the back of my mind, that when the moment arrived for me to come out, I would. I wasn’t yanked out of the closet.”
“When I came out, people said it may have a negative effect on my career, and that’s definitely something I thought about before I did it. But I don’t hold that belief. I just go on my auditions and plug away as I normally would.”
“At the end of my career, I can look back and ask, ‘Well, did it, or didn’t it?’ But at the moment, I just have to move forward and hope that people will follow my actions.”
And we do Jonathan. Especially since we’re totally in love with your boyfriend.
