Big kudos to ABC World News Now host Dan Kloeffler. Not only did he come out while broadcasting on-air — itself an incredibly courageous thing to do — but he did it in a casual, nonchalant way. No big, dramatic announcement; Kloeffer just off-handedly dropped it during a story about actor Zachary Quinto. “He’s thirty-four, I’m thirty-five,” Kloeffler said about Quinto, who also just came out. “I’m thinking, I can lose my distraction about dating actors for that one.” Kloeffler didn’t present it as a game-changing fact of outsized importance, but just a part of who he is. This is the kind of thing that helps encourage — however slightly — mainstream acceptance of different sexualities, even. source

When i found out that Jamey Rodemeyer killed himself — I felt deeply troubled. But when I found out that Jamey Rodemeyer had made an it gets better video only months before taking his own life — I felt indescribable despair. I also made an it gets better video last year—in the wake of the senseless and tragic gay teen suicides that were sweeping the nation at the time. But in light of Jamey’s death — it became clear to me in an instant that living a gay life without publicly acknowledging it — is simply not enough to make any significant contribution to the immense work that lies ahead on the road to complete equality.
"Star Trek" and "Heroes" star Zachary Quinto, explaining why he chose to come out. To put it simply, 14-year-old Jamey Rodemeyer’s death really hit him hard. “Jamey Rodemeyer’s life changed mine,” he writes. “And while his death only makes me wish that i had done this sooner — I am eternally grateful to him for being the catalyst for change within me.” Coming out on its own is a brave move; but Quinto’s emotionally complex reasons for doing so only give the decision higher impact.

A couple hints: He took over an iconic role in a remake a couple years back. He’s also known for playing a villain.
EDIT: OK, OK, It’s Zachary Quinto. Read his reasons why. They’re pretty powerful.
