Writer Speaks Out on Making Sulu Gay

Sulu

One of the writers of Star Trek Beyond and Hollywood mainstay Bryan Fuller has said writing the character of Sulu as gay was key to better ‘representation’. In Star Trek Beyond, Sulu – played by John Cho – has a same-sex partner with whom he is raising a daughter.

Fuller, who is gay and married, said at the Star Trek 50th anniversary panel: ‘I think the bigger picture is that we need gay representation.

‘And the fact that they embraced that idea and made John Cho’s portrayal as Sulu a gay man was a lovely move of inclusivity. With the science-fiction extrapolation of one universe to the other and the fluidity of sexuality, it feels like there’s an explanation that both of those things exist.’
