Gays Behaving Badly

It never fails – smack dab in the middle of Pride Month, one of our illustrious members has to give us gay folk a bad name.  This week, it’s Zachary Quinto.  According to reports, he was in Toronto, Canada, and allegedly acted like “an entitled child” at a restaurant.  From what we can put together, the restaurant texts you when your table is ready.  When he was texted, Zachary didn’t respond or go to see the host (maybe he’s like my parents, who NEVER check their texts).  When he did show up, the table had already been given away to another party.  He saw two empty tables and tried to take them over – even though he was informed they were already spoken for.  The restaurant claims he made the host cry and made other diners uncomfortable.  They added, “Mr. Quinto, take your bad vibes somewhere else, we have many lovely celebrities join us at Manita but you are NOT one of them.”


In more casual dining news, Colton Underwood showed off his meat – as in the meat you put in your mouth (well, that doesn’t clear things up at all).  I’ll show you the photo on  He considers this his first official Pride.  “It’s taken me a few years to really put the work in.  To learn and advocate and fight next to our community and understand where I fit in in all of that.”  Here’s a tip – if you consider yourself part of the community, you are likely not next to us.  He added, “We’re all part of the same community.  We have each other’s backs and nobody can get in between us.”  Because, you know, he’s next to us.


During The Hollywood Reporter’s Awards Chatter podcast, Matt Bomer revealed that he didn’t get the role of Superman way back in 2003 because he’s gay.  He was allegedly director Brett Ratner’s choice for the role, but then Ratner left the project.  At the time, Variety wrote, “The final straw for Ratner seems to have been the unwillingness of Warners execs to approve Ratner’s choice as the Man of Steel, soap star Matt Bomer.  Among the actors who tested for the role were Brendan Fraser, Paul Walker and Josh Hartnett.”  It should be noted that at the time, Bomer was best known for his role on Guiding Light – and was not out publicly.  When asked point-blank if he lost the role because he’s gay, Bomer said, “How, and why, and who, I don’t know, but yeah, that’s my understanding.”  By the by, when a new director joins a project, they typically make their own casting choices.
