George Takei, Mr. Sulu, says hes gay

I always wondered why he wore those flamboyant neck scarfs in the movies!

George Takei, Mr. Sulu, says hes gay
Actor and partner have been together for 18 years

Actor George Takei, shown greeting a crowd with the Vulcan greeting, has come out as gay.


Updated: 11:11 p.m. ET Oct. 27, 2005

LOS ANGELES - George Takei, who as helmsman Sulu steered the Starship Enterprise through three television seasons and six movies, has come out as a homosexual in the current issue of Frontiers, a biweekly Los Angeles magazine covering the gay and lesbian community.

Takei told The Associated Press on Thursday that his new onstage role as psychologist Martin Dysart in Equus, helped inspire him to publicly discuss his sexuality.

Takei described the character as a very contained but turbulently frustrated man. The play opened Wednesday at the David Henry Hwang Theater in Los Angeles, the same day that Frontiers magazine featured a story on Takeis coming out.

Well, I guess he and the Star Trek nerds have something in common now, not getting any action from females.

I saw the story on the news characterized with "What you never thought about Mr. Sulu" - right, another completely incorrect news story. Who didn't know Mr. Sulu was gay?

It was always pretty obvious that he and Chekov were the Matt Damon and Ben Aflack of Starfleet.

Have a fabulous day!

A bit of homophobia? They say Leonardo daVinci was gay.
