Returning to Broadway as one of the stars of The Boys in the Band, Zachary Quinto covers the summer 2018 edition of Essential Homme. Quinto appears in a feature photographed by Kevin Sinclair with styling by Joseph Episcopo. Discussing The Boys in the Band, Quinto explains,
Everybody is paranoid. Everybody is afraid. Everybody has internalized this hatred they’ve been pummeled with it in the real world. How does that inform a character?
Connecting the play to modern times, Quinto shares,
How far we’ve come socially, politically, legislatively in the last 50 years is one thing, but where are we in terms of self-acceptance? Self-love? Quinto continues,
I don’t think we live in a culture or society today that’s any more encouraging of loving ourselves than it was 50 years ago.
