George Takei is marrying longtime boyfriend

Tbdgeorgetakei052108 Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi aren't the only same-sex couple planning to make it legal. After California struck down laws preventing gay couples from marrying, Star Trek's George Takei says he and his partner (and business manager) of 21 years, Brad Altman, are going to tie the knot, too.

"No more 'separate but equal.' No more second-class citizenship," the 71-year-old wrote on his Web site. "Brad and I are going to be married as full citizens of our state."

No, he's not a big deal anymore (even after his turn on Heroes), but after 21 years, all we have to say is full speed ahead, Mr. Sulu.
