Gay News Flash – Zachary Quinto Admits he is GAY!



Happy Sunday!  Today we pay tribute to actor Zachary Quinto.  Rumors have circulated for some time that he was on our team, and this week, in a new interview, he comes out!

Zachary is probably  best known for his role on NBC’s series Heroes and playing Spock in 2009′s Star Trek reboot.

Just a year ago, when asked in a New York Times article about Internet rumors about his sexuality, Quinto told the paper, “The fact that these things are such hot-button issues right now, socially and politically, I would much rather talk about that than talk about who I sleep with.”



HIS RECENT  eight-month run in the New York stage revival of Angels in America was an eye-opening experience for him.

Since the project, the actor, 34 – who had an acclaimed role as Louis Ironson, a man who abandons his AIDS-stricken boyfriend – publicly discusses his much-questioned sexual orientation for the first time.

In a new interview in New York, Quinto calls his work in the off-Broadway play the “most challenging thing I’ve ever done as an actor, and the most rewarding.”

“At the same time,” he adds, “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.”

Later in the interview, when the topic changes to legalizing gay marriage and the suicide of bullied gay teen Jamey Rodemeyer, the actor once again refers to himself as a “gay man.” He says that when it comes to the different rights and treatment that come with being homosexual, “there’s a hopelessness that surrounds it.”

“In light of Jamey’s death,” Quinto posted on his website referring to the suicide of Jamey Rodemeyer, a 14-year-old gay student in New Jersey, “it became clear to me in an instant 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”. 

For the first time, a major movie star, an action hero as well as a romantic leading man, has admitted his homosexuality. People underestimate the power of coming out. For them, as well as the whole LGBT community.  For them, it free’s them. It lifts the burden of hiding all of the time. For the community, it’s one more role model for our team. 


By coming out of the closet, Quinto has not only done something of great significance for the entertainment industry and the gay people within it, he has committed to using his voice to fight on behalf of LGBT teenagers who don’t have a voice — teens like Jamey who need others who are more visible to serve as role models to give them strength and hope.


 


Quinto deserves a lot of credit for his decision; it required a lot of courage, as he has decided to buck the trend of the entire establishment and put saving the lives of gay youth ahead of his own self-interests (making money and being famous), which is what most celebrities in Hollywood choose instead.


We must do everything we can to ensure that Quinto succeeds and that his career is not hindered in any way by his sexuality. We can start by seeing his new Wall Street thriller Margin Call, when it opens this Friday, October 21st. It’s absolutely vital that we turn out to see it in it’s opening weekend since directors, producers, agents, managers, and studio execs will be watching closely to see how the movie performs in the aftermath of Quinto’s coming out.


 


If the film does well, it will go a long way to dispel the myth that casting an openly gay man in a starring role will hinder box office prospects. If the movie does badly, the Hollywood establishment will use it as evidence that they were right all along, and we simply cannot allow them to do that.


 


We cannot allow this historic moment to be squandered by the cynics. This is a battle between hope and fear. And we must never allow fear to win.

There is power in numbers.

Thank you, Zachary!


Sunday Worship – with Kellan Lutz


Sunday is a time for worship –  and since I don’t believe in organized religion or church,
our Sunday Worship consists of paying tribute to HOT MEN.
Kellan Lutz is NOT gay –  but man, that is one hot vampire that could suck me dry! I’m just sayin!
(he is currently available, and would love to tie the knot with the right girl one day.)



Perhaps best known as Emmett Cullen from the Twilight sries –  Kellan has a couple new films coming out, which are a big departure from Twilight.

In “Love Wedding Marriage,”  (out in late June/early July)  Lutz plays a “normal guy” for once, so when we caught up with him at the film’s premiere, we had to ask how it felt to tackle a real-life character versus an undead one, as well as what new side of Lutz we’ll see in the rom-com.

“You see more of the normal guy side [of me] I guess,” Lutz told MTV News. “My character, Charlie, struggles with being a newlywed husband and the marital bliss of all that, and hoping he’ll get more and get some fun action,” he explained with a grin. “And his wife [Moore] is kind of preoccupied, trying to save her parents’ marriage and he gets frustrated, as most males do.”

You can also see him in “A Warriors Heart”  out later this year.  And also in “The Killing Game” with Samuel L. Jackson.

The Killing Game centers on a young man (Lutz) who is kidnapped and forced into the savage world of a modern gladiator arena, (sounds like a skin flick!)  where men fight to the death for entertainment of the online masses. Jackson orchestrates the games, overseeing them from his computer lair with the help of twin ladies who see to his every desire.
