It Won’t Have to Be a Major Focus
At this juncture, most gay characters are there for a reason as a main focal point in movies and shows. The relationships and mannerisms are there to make a statement or to further the plot in some way. Cho has said that Sulu’s character being gay is not a big deal in the movie. We can hope that this will generally be the case in the future, that there will not always need to be an agenda before deciding that a character is gay.
