Zachary attended the anniversary gala of LA's Gay and Lesbian Center on Saturday, presenting a tribute to drag performer Coco Peru. In Greg In Hollywood's report on the evening he has this to say about Zach ;
Zachary Quinto, a big movie star thanks to his role as Spock in the recent Star Trek movie, showed up to pay tribute to an old friend: Coco Peru.
He talked about being taken to one of Coco’s shows when he was just 22 (”A lot longer ago than it looks”) and remembers leaving the show “staggered by how powerful it was for me.”
Zachary paid tribute to Coco for having “the power of transcending limitations” and for being “completely unafraid.”
Quinto also read a message from Lily Tomlin (Liza Minnelli had appeared briefly on video and said to Coco: “You’re GAY? Who knew!”) and he won over the crowd for his total effort to sound somewhat like Tomlin – complete with a snort at the end a la her Ernestine character.For the entire report click here There are more pics in the gallery.
