The Star Trek star is an avid proponent of equal rights and a highly visible, well-loved gay celebrity. On his Facebook page today, Takei stated:
Friends, I had lunch with Donald Trump today at the Trump Tower Grill. It was a lively and engaging hour-long conversation that touched upon his personal position on marriage equality. He confided that he recently attended a same-sex wedding and that he’d found it “beautiful.”
I remarked that NY is now a marriage-equality state, and that after all, marriage is better for business! Minds are changing across America, and I am always ready to speak to those ready to listen. I hope that my chat with The Don might have some effect on his stance on the subject.
If Mr. Trump wants to rehabilitate his image, Sulu is a good place to start.
