Star Trek's Captain Sulu Comes Out
I am a big Star Trek fan, having seen all ten movies and most of the five different TV series. In fact last year when they canceled Star Trek Enterprise, I was more than a little disappointed.
So when I surveyed the Internet news this morning, I was quite surprised to see an article titled "Star Trek" Actor George Takei Comes Out. It seems the show that featured the first-ever interracial kiss on network television (between Captain Kirk and Lieutenant Uhura in 1968) also had a gay man as a star.
You can read the story on 365gay.com.
George Takei and his partner have been together for 18 years.
I'm happy for him. I know that I am in a much better place now that I'm out. I wonder if he was living a closeted life in his community of friends and this outting is for the benefit of the public, or if this is a way to affirm others and help them lead a positive and honest life.
Being a Star Trek fan too, its awesome that Takei came out. Admittedly, my fav of the series is DS9, but enjoy them all.
