The Star Trek icon married his partner of 21 years, Brad Altman, on Sunday in a multicultural ceremony at the Japanese American National Museum that featured a Buddhist priest, Native American wedding bands, a Japanese Koto harp and a bagpipe procession.
They both wore white dinner jackets and black pants, and entered to the tune of “One Singular Sensation” from A Chorus Line, just to weed out anyone who was under the mistaken notion that they were attending a heterosexual event.
Fellow Trekkers Walter Koenig and Nichelle Nichols served as best man and best lady.
“We have a relationship that’s been stronger and longer-lived than some of our straight friends, and yet we were not equal,” George told The Associated Press before the ceremony. “What this does is give us that dignity; (it’s) being part of the American system and being whole. We’re making the American system whole as well, as America is becoming more equal.”
Amidst the insanity surrounding the upcoming election, I can’t tell you how heart-warming it is to see same-sex marriages legally taking place in this country. A little ray of light.
Congrats, you two!

ALL RIGHT! What a nice looking couple.
Aww congratulations, guys!!
So so cute, have a good life as a married couple guys!
This is great news!
I still can’t believe Mr. Sulu is a rod swallower.
Wow, Takei looks a lot like my grandma. And she’s not asian. That is so weird. Speaking of which, her son, my mom’s brother, recently married his boyfriend…
Even though same sex marriage has been legal in Denmark as long as I can remember it is still wonderful to see such a thing happen, because people aren’t as priveledged in all countries. I’m happy to see this development in America!
Hurrah for equal rights!
