And it was hot and cute at the same time.

We’ve waited for fifty-one years, whilst the likes of James T Kirk, Jean-Luc Picard, yes even Janeway had their straight / alien kisses but now, 2017, gay guys, it’s our turn.

Yes! In the latest episode of Star Trek: Discovery, Lt. Paul Stamets (Anthony Rapp) and Chief Medical Officer Hugh Culber (Wilson Cruz) locked lips and it was the sweetest gay kiss we’ve ever seen. Hell, it’s the only male on male kiss we’ve ever seen in Star Trek, full stop.

Check out the moment below

Star Trek: Discovery become the first ST TV series to have two gay male characters in principle roles. The characters are  Lt. Paul Stamets and Chief Medical Officer Hugh Culber.

We were first introduced to their relationship in Episode 5 when the couple brush their teeth together in their quarters and discuss their day.
A pretty average scene, but fantastic in its representation of a gay couple as really typical.
