There is a Little Gay in Star Trek

Blood & Fire

News broke this week that a group of LGBTQ Star Trek fans had targeted CBS and Paramount Pictures with an online petition for the next captain in the franchise to be queer. That should come as no surprise given the gains by lesbians, gays, bisexuals, transgender and queer people in terms of representation in the entertainment medium.

Sadly, it’s still “news” whenever some celebrity comes out, and all too often a topic of promotion when a Hollywood producer can boast he’s hired a token member of the LGBTQ community, “to promote diversity.”

Of course Star Trek should not be excluded from our far more fabulous universe, by any means. And it’s not, not by a parsec.
