Zachary Quinto came out as gay in college

London, July 23 (IANS) Actor Zachary Quinto didn’t come out as gay until he was at college because he didn’t feel ready to.

Quinto, who plays Spock for the third time in “Star Trek Beyond”, the third film reboot of the “Star Trek” franchise, says he had known about his sexuality a long time before that, but wasn’t ready to tell anyone, reports The Guardian.


“The question of when I knew I was gay and when I accepted I was gay are two very different conversations. I suppose I knew what was going on. I just wasn’t ready to look at it,” Quinto said.

“I grew up with a pretty suburban, Catholic upbringing. I feel once I was able to create my own life and explore my own path… then I started to turn my attention to fully understanding and accepting who I am,” Quinto added.
