Sulu Gay Kiss Cut From “Star Trek Beyond”


An “intimate,” “welcome-home kiss” between Sulu and his husband was cut from Star Trek Beyond, says actor John Cho, who earlier this month made headlines after revealing that Sulu was gay in the latest film.

In a new interview with Vulture, Cho talks about the character development and some of the concerns he had.

Said Cho:

I was concerned also that there might be Asian-American backlash. There has been this feminization of Asian men, so I thought this might be seen as continuing that lineage, which I disagree with personally, but I brought it up. I was also concerned, scientifically speaking [laughs], that we’re in an alternate universe but I’m assuming that Sulu is the same genetic Sulu in both timelines, and I thought we might be implying that sexual orientation was a choice. Does this sound super overthought?

  1. Too bad they cut it! But I’d love to see a Seme/Dom Sulu sometime. If there’s fanfic, I would read the heck out of it! ;)
