Star Trek actors Anthony Rapp and Wilson Cruz are playing gay characters and both actors are gay themselves. They made history with the first same-sex kiss on Star Trek.The kiss, during the mid-season finale of Netflix’s Star Trek: Discovery, was between Rapp’s Lieutenant Paul Stamets, a top scientist, and Cruz’s Dr Hugh Culber, a medical officer. Rapp, who has also starred in Rent, said they knew that the kiss is to be scandalous and history-making. Moreover, it was a goal they wanted to reach. They ask a producer to allow the characters kiss, they asked him about it over and over again until he finally gave up. “When it happened it was a good time, it was earned and had a meaningful impact, and it was satisfying,” said Rapp, “If it had happened earlier, it probably wouldn’t have had the same meaning. I appreciated the relationship was revealed in subtle ways; it was part of the fabric of the ship.”
