George Takei Boldly Goes Where No Men Have Gone Before
George Takei, known for his roles on Star Trek and Heroes, as well as co-writing Star Trek comics with Peter David, was the first to pay $70 for a same-sex marriage license in West Hollywood early today. George is expected to marry his partner of 21 years, Brad Altman, on September 14th in Los Angeles. (We won’t know for sure until we get the invite.)
George was quoted as saying "it’s going to be the only day like this in our lives and it is the only day like this in the history of America." He also told reporters and a swelling crowd outside the West Hollywood city auditorium "may equality live long and prosper."
We wish the two of them continued happiness, and we’re calling dibs on being the ones to buy them the toaster oven.
