He only came out as gay yesterday, but already Zachary Quinto has inspired another public figure to follow in his footsteps.
ABC News anchor Dan Kloeffler, reporting on the actor's candid weekend interview about his sexuality, revealed he too is gay as he joked about dating Hollywood star.
Both men have said they decided to speak out after a spate of teenage suicides among gay youth.
Kloeffler's tone on air was light-hearted. 'He's 34, I'm 35, I'm thinkin' I could lose my distraction about dating actors for that one', he mused during his World News Now report on Quinto.
Kloeffler later explained on the ABC News website: 'For the same reason that Zach decided to come out, I too, no longer wanted to hide this part of my life.
'As a journalist, I don't want to be the story, but as a gay man I don't want to stand silent if I can offer some inspiration or encouragement to kids that might be struggling with who they are.'

“He’s 34, I’m 35”
These people are so sick.
Quinto is from Pittsburgh. Nice family. I wonder what they think of this?
If I went around telling people at my workplace my sexual orientation (an unblemished record of staunch heterosexuality) I would prbably be fired for innapropriate conduct in a workplace.
Why are gays allowed to discuss sex in the workplace?
I demand equal treatment (fire his ass) or I will scream discrimination.
I have a confession that the whole world needs to hear. I’m not sure why its so important but apparently it is.
I cripplecreek have never been attracted to another man. I have known since I was a teenager that I was attracted to females. This has continued throughout my life and has caused me considerable pain (and pleasure)
So, what was the hang up? Is a 34 year old guy about 30 years too old for you?
I DO NOT WANT TO KNOW WHO YOU HAVE SEX WITH!!
It is TOO MUCH INFORMATION!
The new Spock is gay? Fascinating...
—Both men have said they decided to speak out after a spate of teenage suicides among gay youth. —
This is about the “it gets better” movement.
search it at youtube and, for extra fun, include the word “Pixar”.
I’ve been hammering them off and on with comments.
—Why are gays allowed to discuss sex in the workplace?—
I never call them gay. I call them homosexuals and lesbians. And if I’m feeling especially frisky I’ll call the male ones sodomists.

Its more likely that most suicides are because the kids do not want to be part of the lifestyle they're prone to.
In which case all this encouragement coming from older gays is actually more responsible for the suicides than is bullying.
No. Of course not. If there's anything journalists eschew, it's attention.
Actually the original Spock was asexual. Kirk and Sulu made up for it.
Same here, I’m trying to remove “gay” from my vocabulary. It’s funny how “homosexual” really gets the leftists visibly irked. I wonder why that is...
So, is he “married” to his partner, or is he a fornicator, also?
I guess Shep Smith and Carl Cameron will be next.
This guy is the personification of Phil Hendrie’s character, Doug Dannger, who often starts his sentences with: “I’m a gay man and a gay journalist ...”
when you refuse to go to a priest for confession, you force the rest of the world to listen to you.
So much for his relationship with Uhura, "My attraction to a female has become... illogical."
It’s the same reason they change any terms that have negative connotations -
they intend to deceive, and any term that becomes associated with the truth, they will reject.
It’s perfectly understandable in the Cosmic Battle big picture - their ideology comes from the father of lies, so the light of truth is their enemy, and so is He that represents those things.

A teenager?! HA, When I turned around on the first day of school and saw Gerri O’Conner’s face I knew what I liked.
Why do queers always insist on telling everyone about their perversion?
Because they want public approval for being turned on by a man’s hairy butt, and to normalize same.
What you do with Mr Happy is your own business & no one else’s.
I long for the days when we didn’t know who or what other people were having sex with, and dammit, we liked it that way!!
Except for once every seven years:
What “spate” of teenage suicides?
Is it just me and my hubby that think Shemp has lost weight and isn’t looking too well?
Hubby says he probably has AIDS.
Well there was this girl in kindergarten that smelled like hotdogs and I really liked hotdogs....
—What spate of teenage suicides?—
Search “it gets better” in youtube and you’ll see. It is a quiet epidemic. At least, it is to them.
cripplecreek, I, too, am an ardent heterosexual, and I wonder if you’d be my sponsor for when things get, a little... ya know... hard to handle? Maybe a tag team sorta thing for when I’m really struggling?

I think it’s about time someone started a “Gay Nobody Comes Out” ping list.
But this ping list would work differently: people on the list will have their accounts blocked from all posts devoted to narcissistic nobodies announcing their perverse proclivities.
Alternatively (no pun intended), Mods could banish the DU trolls and the zotted to a ping list where the only thing they are allowed to view on their account are such articles. ‘Course, they might like that.
“I’m a gay man and a gay journalist.”
thats a keeper quote!
The destruction of America has been and continues to be preceded by a destruction of American moral values. Illegitimacy, gay rights, the destruction of the traditional family, abortion, etc., etc. are all a necessary and dire prequel for what the progressive marxists have in store for our Republic.
Gee... Who knew? They hid it so well! (/s)
The term "gay" is a faggy term invented by the queers to "sugar coat" the smell of "sh**t". And let's face it, there are a lot of pro homosexuals in this forum as well, trying to push their issue.
Even when I am respectful to the queers, I call them for what they are HOMOSEXUAL, LESBIANS but to call them "gays" or "suggar" or "candy" or whatever other ridiculous name, I simply can't do it.. I would feel like a fag myself.
Yeah, so does fags which I delight in using oftentimes.
*gack* oh my eyes! LOL
I just say queer. I suppose “queer” was hijacked too and not originally just for queers, but use of the term is effective.
...and, no, I don’t care if anyone is offended.
You will no longer have to hide. You are free now!
I don’t care what a faggot puts in his mouth. But I wish he’d keep it to himself.
The big issue is that most male queers are also molestors of young boys? CNN: Corey Feldman: Biggest problem in Hollywood is pedophilia
According to former child star Corey Feldman, child molestation is rampant in the entertainment industry, as he told Nightline in an interview.
“The No. 1 problem in Hollywood was and is and always will be pedophilia,” he said Wednesday. According to Feldman, the casting couch exists for children, too.
Feldman asserts that directors and other adults in the industry take advantage of young aspiring actors on a regular basis. It’s all done under the radar... But it’s the big secret, the 40-year-old said.
Feldman also claimed that former co-star Corey Haim’s death last year was the end result of sexual abuse by an unnamed “Hollywood mogul.” Feldman said that his friends substance addiction was “a symptom of the molestation he experienced.
The actor previously revealed to GQ that he was raped by his assistant as a child. “It’s something that will be addressed in my inner soul for the rest of my life, and it’s something that truly affects me, he told the magazine.
Is this a surprise to anyone? Merely homomsexuals seeking the object of their loving obsession. They now seek to enter and preach to kids from 1st grade up about the magnificent qualities of a progressive lifestyle.
The MSM has been pushing the story of “gay teen suicides” recently. They claim that these gay teens are bullied and commit suicide because they can’t take it any more.
So, the subtext is that we are a bigoted homophobic society, because these kids are bullied because of being gay. That’s the MSM narrative anyway.
It does seem ironic, because we have never been more open or accepting of homosexuality than we are today. Yet the liberal view is that our society is so hateful and bigoted that there’s an epidemic of teen gay suicides.
There should have been a pandemic of these in 1950 if we’re saying that how society treats homosexuality determines the number of suicides. Were there huge numbers of such suicides back in 1950?
