Zachary Quinto Opens Up About His PrEP Comments

By  | 

When Zachary Quinto made comments about PrEP, the Twittersphere went absolutely berserk. But, in a recent interview with Michelangelo Signorile of the Huffington Post, he addressed his comments brilliantly.

In an effort to exmplin his position on HIV prevention and PrEP, Quinto said:

“Look, I just think we need to be vigilant as a community and a community of gay men. It was not my intention to judge anybody or to rankle anybody, or to put myself in some kind of superior position by any means.

I think if people use PrEP as part of a responsible regimen of taking care of themselves and preserving their bodies and their well-being and the well-being of the people they’re having sex with, then more power to them. There was this thing that I was ‘slut-shaming.’ Anybody who knows me knows that that is the last thing I would ever do. I just think that we can’t let our guard down.”
