The presence of homosexual characters warrants the name "Gay Trek" as little as calling TOS "Straight Trek" because Kirk screws everything that cannot climb onto trees. TOS is neither "Russian Trek" because of Chekov or "African Trek" because of Uhura or "Japanese Trek" because of Sulu. The idea of Trek was and hopefully still is that everybody goes into space, black and white, straight and gay. The very fact that people (not just random folks but Trekkers who should get what Trek is about) make the potential presence of homosexual characters in future Trek incarnations an issue shows how reactionary the times are (at least compared to the sixties).
