In case anyone somehow missed it: Zach Came Out last weekend. :D

He was a bit surprised by the outcome, as well.

And now the LA Times published a brilliant article, maybe the best up to date, so please, spread it!!

Zachary Quinto rides a wave of professional, personal growth

Actor-producer Zachary Quinto is in firm control of his world, with 'Margin Call,' his production company Before the Door's first feature, set to premiere.

In late 2008, "Margin Call" looked like the kind of film project that could languish indefinitely: an unfinanced script from a first-time writer-director on a wonkish subject — the math behind Wall Street's recent collapse.

Then Spock beamed in.

Zachary Quinto had just wrapped filming on J.J. Abrams' reboot of "Star Trek," playing the pointy-eared young Starfleet Academy commander, and his NBC show "Heroes" had a cult following. He had formed a production company with two drama school friends and was looking for projects, so he met "Margin Call" writer-director J.C. Chandor at the Fairfax Farmers Market on the recommendation of a mutual friend.

"I recognized that I had a window of opportunity that had opened because of my exposure as an actor," Quinto, 34, said in an interview at the Silver Lake offices of Before the Door, his company with Neal Dodson and Corey Moosa. A bungalow that was once Quinto's apartment, Before the Door feels as much like a home as a business, with Quinto's genial mixed Irish wolfhound, Noah, padding through the rooms. "I wanted to take some control of the stories that I'm a part of telling."

"Margin Call" became Before the Door's first feature, with Quinto starring as a Wall Street analyst who discovers a catastrophic flaw in his company's financial formula. Kevin Spacey, Paul Bettany and Demi Moore are some of his equivocating bosses, who must determine how to manage the crisis; Penn Badgley is a young colleague out of his depth, mathematically and emotionally. As the film arrives in theaters Friday, Quinto is navigating another, more personal moment in the spotlight, and telling more of his own story: Last weekend he revealed that he's gay.
Please, do read the rest @ LATimes...

...Not that I actually needed another reason to love and admire him, mind you! ;) I just think this needs to be spread, because it's awesome! ;)

Leonard Nimoy (!) flies to NY to see Zach in AiA!! I just love that they have such an amazing relationship!

I love him so much for taking time to film this despite his insane work schedule!

Here are the Zach bits :

Towards end of our shooting days in Tustin, they opened up the back door of the dark and smokey blimp hangar and as we hung around for the last calls of the day, I watched Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto and Karl Urban walk towards the back of the set, into the bright light of day, surrounded by smoke. At this point, the environment was practically Speilbergian and we weren’t even filming. The three men stepped out of the mists and into the light and I got back to running my obstacle course. Living the dream, you know.

Main cast members Zachary Quinto and Chris Pine were incredibly friendly to us lowly extras, not to mention JJ Abrams himself who took the time to very politely apologize to an extra he’d be CGI-ing later in post-production. We even got to talk Dark Knight movie news with self-declared ‘nerd’ Karl Urban (who reminded us all cheekily after coming to set late one scene that he was in Lord of the Rings!)
