Chris Pine's Gay Pride Experience Involved A Trekkie Wearing Only A Sock: VIDEO


Chris Pine was on Conan O'Brien's talk show last night to discuss his new movie, People Like Us, when the conversation turned to the actor's recent visit to New York, which happened to coincide with last weekend's gay pride parade.

According to Pine, he was walking down the street to see a friend when a pride reveler, wearing only a sock, began chasing him and shouting "Captain Kirk!"

Those gay trekkies are all business!

Watch Pine retell the tale, AFTER THE JUMP.

  6. The end of the story is that he made it back to the hotel in 12 minutes. I hope the sock guy wasn't tired when they got there.

  8. The fact that a gay man shows up for a Pride parade wearing only a sock demonstrates how much growing up some people have yet to do, and how little they think about how their actions impact on others. Those actions really make no one look good.

  10. @David

    "'Can't we get our people to at least DRESS respectfully for one lousy day? Is that too much to ask of our people?'

    Yes, yes it is.

    Because you are kidding yourself if you think Pride parades, in any form, will EVER change the minds of homophobes. The straight people who show up to see Pride parades are already largely convinced. We're parading to the choir, Jesse. Those straight people love our freaks, bless them."

  11. David, your post really makes no one look good, least of all you.

  12. He was likely visiting Zachary Quinto, who's gay & his co-star in Star Trek. The two are close & I've had fantasies of them together. Too bad he's straight.

  13. Pride parades are as much about individual pride as community pride. If someone choses to show up in nothing more than a sock then they are NOT representing "our people", only themselves. And, as ridiculous and distasteful as that limited attire may seem to some people, it is their right. Anyone who allows themself to be defined and/or represented by another indivdual or group is making a huge mistake.

    @Eric - 2 thumbs up!
