Into the final frontier -- and out of the closet

George Takei, who broke barriers with his portrayal of Mr. Sulu on the original Star Trek, has just broken another one -- he's now publicly out. He's been with his partner (and manager) for 18 years, but recently spoke about his homosexuality with Frontiers magazine, which as far as I can tell is the first time he's talked about it to the media. The interview also mentions his autobiography, his upcoming star turn in a production of Equus, and the numerous civil rights organizations he's involved with. I thought Takei was cool before, but now I'm sure of it.

Very good, Mr. Sulu!
