Star Trek star and all around hilarious gay rights fighter George Takei alerted everyone to the Queen signing a marriage Equality law in the UK today, via this image posted on facebook, and link he tweeted out on twitter. Because only Captain Kirk aka William Shatner can keep up with George on social media.
