Why Star Trek Beyond Couldn’t Simply Show a Gay Couple Being Gay

I loved Star Trek Beyond, and thought it spiritually similar to both TOS and TNG and a much needed course-correction after Star Trek Into Darkness. Even better, it brought some long-overdue LGBTQIA representation into the Trek universe by making Kelvin Universe Hikaru Sulu gay and giving him a husband. Yet their one scene together in the film left something to be desired. **SPOILER ALERT IF YOU WANT TO GO INTO THE FILM COMPLETELY UNSULLIED**
