Zachary Quinto Says There Are Still Male Actors In Hollywood Afraid To Come Out

Fresh off of of American Horror Story: NYC, which just ended it's season this past Wednesday, openly gay actor Zachary Quinto is weighing in on why it's still difficult for closeted actors to come out, even though there's been a rise in queer visibility in media.

Here's what he told The Independent:

“There’s still a tremendous amount of fear around particularly openly gay men in our industry. There is this long-held and stubborn belief that to identify as an openly gay man on some level means you’re inherently less masculine, inherently less believable as a straight character. There are still actors who believe their careers are better served by not acknowledging their authentic selves. That’s their prerogative, but I think we’re part of a movement that is unstoppable.”
