Personal life[edit]

In response to the news that actor Zachary Quinto had come out as gay, Kloeffler publicly came out on the air in October 2011.[4] In a statement on the ABC News website, he wrote that a series of suicides by gay youth also led him to hope his being publicly out would help encourage young gay people struggling to accept themselves.[5]
