The "Star Trek" actor discussed for the first time in public, his sexual orientation which became a subject of debate after he successfully portrayed homosexual character in "Angels in America" stage production.

To New York magazine, Quinto admitted that playing Louis Ironson in the off-Broadway play was "most challenging thing I've ever done as an actor, and the most rewarding." He added, "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."

He also took the liberty of giving his opinion about gay bullying, one that tragically killed teen Jamey Rodemeyer. He said, "there's a hopelessness that surrounds" rights and treatment for homosexual. "Where's this disparity coming from, and why can't we as a culture and society dig deeper to examine that?" he said. "We're terrified of facing ourselves."
