    Sulu Is an Out and Proud Gay Man in Star Trek Beyond

    Star Trek Beyond
    will boldly go where no Star Trek film has gone before: Herald Sun reports that the upcoming movie will depict U.S.S. Enterprise helmsman Hikaru Sulu as a gay man raising a daughter with his gay lover.

    The Star Trek franchise, which, though famously trailblazing in terms of diversity and progressive storylines, has never before featured an openly gay crew member.

    “I liked the approach, which was not to make a big thing out it,” actor John Cho, who plays Sulu in the new films, told the Herald Sun. “Which is where I hope we are going as a species, to not politicize one’s personal orientations.”

    Cho also indicated that Star Trek Beyond screenwriter (and co-star) Simon Pegg and director Justin Lin decided to make Sulu openly gay as an homage to George Takei, the actor who played Sulu on the original Star Trek series. (Sulu was never given a romantic partner in previous Star Trek incarnations.)

    Takei came out publicly in 2005, when he revealed that he had been with his partner, Brad Altman, for nearly 20 years. The pair married in 2008.

    Star Trek Beyond will be released on July 22, 2016.

    It's not a big thing ... until the producers insist John Cho kiss a dude.

    Then the shit will hit the dilithium crystals.

    Oh I'm sure they will fuck that up also. I'm sure Star Trek will handle it well where Star Wars will just crowbar it in .
