George Takei, despite being already 80 years old – and despite no longer involved in the Star Trek franchise – is still best remembered as his character Hikaru Sulu. Plus there is no stopping his more than 10 million followers from continually growing.
It was only in 2008 when he publicly announced his sexuality by claiming he was in a relationship with actor and writer Brad Altman. Plus, little did anyone know that the two have been together for 18 years. The couple appeared in The Newlywed Game TV show a year later where they won $10,000 for their chosen charity, the Japanese American National Museum.
Brandon Flynn & Sam Smith
Singer Sam Smith’s fans couldn’t get a hold of themselves when they learned they were in a relationship. Meanwhile, fans of 13 Reasons Why Star, Brandon Flynn, similarly was over the moon when they learned that he was dating Sam Smith. The two are doing their best to keep a low profile as they prefer to keep their relationship quiet.
Happiness is more important than updating both their fan groups about the status of their relationship. Unfortunately, gossip mags got the better of them and revealed that the two called it quits. And Sam has since been on a huge resurgence in his music career.
Jason Landau & Cheyenne Jackson
Cheyenne Jackson, an actor from the series American Horror Story, has no horror stories to tell when it comes to his relationship with entrepreneur and fellow actor Jason Landau. It was 2013 when the two publicly announced that they were dating. A year later, they tied the knot and are now living happily as a family with their twins.
Jackson is serious about being a dedicated dad. He took six months off from work just to be a full-time stay-at-home father for the twins. Since then, the family has been living happily every after, together – and hopefully for life.
Beth Ditto & Kristin Ogata
No one can stop love from happening. It's just a natural reflex that can happen any given time. Not even Cupid or the courts can halt two people from falling in love. Beth Ditto and her partner Kristin Ogata showed to the world how true this statement is by tying the knot in Hawaii via a wedding ceremony, that was unofficial.
It was truly incredible, romantic occasion for everyone involved. Love was enough to keep them together apparently. However, after 17 months, they decided to go to Oregon to formally acknowledge their union thanks to the same-sex laws in the state.
Mark Bradshaw & Ben Whishaw
Ben Whishaw is an English actor who prefers privacy in his life. Though this may be ironic considering that he is an actor, and an incredibly talented actor, at that, it seems impossible to keep his wish fulfilled specially when he publicly announced a detail about the relationship he was in.
It was 2012 when Ben Whishaw couldn’t help himself but exclaim that he and Mark Bradshaw, a composer from Australia, are in a relationship. Plus, it was not just a relationship, the two were in a civil partnership. And they are still going strong until this very day.
