I still think it will make a difference to the world, Andrew. Even if just a little bit. In an article I read, E Online, I think, he said he'd been in a relationship for 18 years and his friends and family had always been aware but he just hadn't spoken to the press.I just think that maybe there could be some homophobes (perhaps a few Trekkies even) who maybe will ponder and maybe figure that this is just a man living a life and that there are other gay men and women, just living lives. Maybe some dumpy teen-age boy in a coffee shop will feel a bit more empowered to just be himself or something. Ya never know. It's positive anyway.loulou
I do actually agree with you, I think it is always beneficial when someone in the public eye comes out. I have a long history as a Trekkie, I did the whole convention nerd thing when I was a teenager. I always knew Takei was gay, which was confirmed because he was on friendly terms with a friend of mine and she confirmed the fact. I have killer gaydar, so it always seemed obvious to me.I was just pulling a jaded hipster 'tude in this post, I do think he has done a very good thing.
*exhales*finally. Good for him. (and all of is!)-gg
I must have been living under a rock... I had absolutely no idea he was gay, not until I saw it on some (other) random blog/news blog this week...So finally, we get a fagola on the Enterprise... yaaaaay! *grin*
You have to love the picture they are running with this story. Drive that point home, guys!
Tab Hunter speaks to George at Vanity Fair: http://www.vanityfair.com/commentary/content/articles/051031roco03Doesn't say much really. Didn't have an affair with Rock Hudson, nor with James Dean. But had 3 years with Tony Perkins. Sheesh. Tony. Why not Rock??? :PLike Takei, Tab says, "I have a relationship that I've had for 20-some years."George wants dirt and Tab just won't dish.He does talk a wee bit about fear of the press. I think I'll read his book cuz there's got to be more to him than this.
I plan to get Tab Hunter's book too, should be an interesting read.I read the other day that John Barrowman has been with his partner for 13 years, considering that he's not that old I think that's awesome.
