Chronicle of a Cynical Young Gay as She Experiences Star Trek
Cynical Young Gay:Star Trek is a queer shipping classic. Since I like TV, and gays, I should finally check it out!
CYG, after three episodes:Okay, wow. So I knew it was gay but I didn't realize it was going to be THIS gay, this... explicit? There's a lotta stuff going on here subtextually. Kirk and Spock fit so well with each other, so beautifully! the show is clearly about them.
Two seasons deep:Kirk and Spock are so fucking in love holy shit holy SHIT? it simply DOES NOT STOP? God they're such a perfect pair. Jim needs spock to believe in him Spock calls jim Jim THey had SEX DURING PON FARR? star trek is very moving and romantic
Mid third season:GENE IS USING STAR TREK TO SPEAK OPENLY ABOUT HIS INABILITY TO DEPICT THE TRUTH OF HIS CHARACTERS????????? REVEAL THE KIRK AND SPOCK GAY TRUTH HOLY SHIT!!!!!!! HOLY SHIT
Finishing the 3rd season:Okay, okay, I get it. It was the 60s. Gene did all he could, and you know what? I feel like the five year mission is Kirk and Spock's 1895. they're always out there, exploring deep space, together, in love. It's so smart for gene to leave the series this way and to feel like they'll always be diving open-ended into new worlds and new adventures. So smart, so clever. So glad the five year mission never ends and kirk and spock are happy forever
Awesome view from both sides. Sarado kasi yung light house, kung sa mismong taas siguro kami ng light house nagpicture, mas awesome yung view. Makikita siguro yung both side na may dagat tapos nasa gitna yung mga bundok. Sayang. Hehe.
little confused by media outlets’ insistence that sulu in beyond is the first gay character in star trek. aren’t they aware that star trek is literally a gay franchise with 2 gay characters that are in love with each other in its most prominent roles
During a promotional event in Australia, John Cho confirmed that beloved Star Trek character Hikaru Sulu is gay.
Sulu was originally played by George Takei, who in later life has become a prominent activist for LGBT rights. In a tribute to his ongoing legacy as an icon of the Star Trek franchise, Star Trek Beyond writer Simon Pegg and director Justin Lin decided make Sulu canonically gay in the upcoming movie.
“I liked [Pegg and Lin’s] approach, which was not to make a big thing out of it, which is where I hope we are going as a species, to not politicize one’s personal orientations,” Cho said.
I made Starfleet Insignia pride flags!! I did as many as I knew, but if anyone has any requests I would be happy to make them. And they’re transparent, so you can put them on your blog if you so choose. Just be sure to link back to me :)
this is legitimally one of the gayest scenes that I ever had to witness in my entire life. like I’m not even joking. you have to make some intense leaps of logic to find a hetero way to read this scene. how was this aired in 60’s television. i’m amazed
