Interview with Access Hollywood; also some links to other interviews  


On coming out, and Halloween!

He did an interview with Star Trek magazine here.

And a quick blurb about his decision to come out in NY Mag, here:

"When I sat down with Ben on Monday and had that conversation, I knew what I was going to do and it was a very clear choice for me to do it in the way that I did it, and I'm really glad that that's the way it all unfolded," he told us yesterday at the event, which was hosted by The Wall Street Journal and Forevermark. Still, Quinto says he's surprised by the volume of the reaction. "I never ever imagined that it would be — I mean, I guess I figured people would figure it out, hear about it, but I didn't know it would be like global news! I was like, What? It was really crazy to me. People from all over the world were reaching out to me on the Internet, on Twitter. Social media makes it a lot easier now. I'm just really honored and thrilled and grateful."


And there's this article on Nextmovie.com where he says:

"I didn't tell anybody I was going to do it," Quinto told us exclusively. "I did it on my own terms, in my own time, in my own words, and that is absolutely the type of relationship I want to have to that information. I did it because I recognized the way that it helped people, I did it because it was my time to do it, and yeah, it was definitely a deliberate choice to do it in that way."


If you find anymore interviews, pics, anything, please post them!

He is an incredibly centered person. I really admire his courage and quiet power. I wish him all the best.

And I love him more than ever.

And this right here is why he is an inspiration and a role model for us. I'm incredibly grateful that he felt confident enough to take that step, and he has already managed to inspire an ABC news anchor to follow his example - I hope many more will follow.

My own coming out was a complete nightmare. But this is giving me hope that things might get better.

Oh, and he wasn't kidding about the *global news coverage* - his coming out did make headlines in one of our best known news magazines, The Spiegel! :D

And of course the always awesome George Takei had something to say as well! ;)
