8 July 2016 5:50 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Ahead of its release later this month, actor John Cho has revealed that Star Trek Beyond will casually reveal that Hikaru Sulu is in a same-sex relationship, in a nod to original Star Trek star George Takei.

“I liked the approach, which was not to make a big thing out it,” Cho tells Herald Sun, “Which is where I hope we are going as a species, to not politicize one’s personal orientations.”

However, it seems that Takei himself isn’t overly impressed by the decision to make Sulu gay, describing it as “unfortunate” in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter.

“I’m delighted that there’s a gay character,” states Takei. “Unfortunately, it’s a twisting of Gene’s creation, to which he put in so much thought. I think it’s really unfortunate.”

Takei said that he instead urged the filmmakers to create an original gay character, adding that:

With the film arriving in cinemas on Friday, we've got time for one final trailer for Star Trek Beyond...

Star Trek Beyond: Sulu is Star Trek's first openly gay character

It's been revealed that there's a small scene in Star Trek Beyond where Sulu – played by John Cho in the film – is very briefly seen with a same-sex partner and their daughter.

It’s a very small and understated moment, but one not without significance: Sulu thus becomes the first openly gay character in the Star Trek series, in its 50th birthday year.

The idea reportedly came from co-writer Simon Pegg, and as Cho told the Herald Sun, “I liked the approach, which was not to make a big thing out [of] it, which is where I »

Ian McKellen Says Gay Actors Are ‘Disregarded’ by Hollywood

25 January 2016 11:52 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

As the Academy works to remedy Hollywood’s inclusion issue, Sir Ian McKellen is stressing the need to broaden the definition of the word diversity. McKellen says that gay actors are being “disregarded” and ignored by Hollywood as much as African Americans are.

McKellan, who is the co-founder of the Lgbt rights charity Stonewall, said the criticism facing the Academy for the lack of diversity at the Oscars is “legitimate.”

“As a representative of the industry they’re in, it’s receiving complaints which I fully sympathize with,” the 76-year-old actor said while speaking to Sky News. “It’s not only black people who’ve been disregarded by the film industry, it used to be women, it’s certainly gay people to this day. And these are all legitimate complaints and the Oscars are the focus of those complaints, of course.”

He also spoke to The Guardian about the industry »
