    I’m a bi trans woman and I adore the Stamets-Culber family. Paul and Hugh were already wonderful together and Paul just immediately adopting Adira was adorable. I really loved how quickly he took to being a dad to the point where despite not being able to see or hear Grey was also refusing to talk to him when he refused to show up for Adira. That scene were Hugh was able to see Grey at last was just so beautiful, I hope they can work something out for Grey so he isn’t stuck being a memory or ghost or whatever is going on with him. I can’t wait to see where they take things in the next season. They’ve been such a wonderful addition to the show and for Star Trek in general, I just love all of them.

    I just want to hug all four of them every time they're on screen.

    I'm looking forward to seeing how they make Grey visible.

    It's great to see these positive stories!

    I'm a gay man, and it was actually by watching Discovery that I realized that it's probably a bit more complicated than that. At some point, I was listening to a YouTube video discussing Disco and trans representation, and it clicked into place for me that while people see me as male and I prefer to see myself as male, I've always natively felt...they. I'm not sure what the word is for not feeling like what people perceive you to be but wanting to? Maybe that's nothing at all? In a world without Discovery and its community, I'd probably be confused, but the show has genuinely helped me just say, "Great, OK. I can go with this."

    Seems like you’re describing dysphoria.

    I think you’re right. I experience my version of the same thing and it mostly stems from my female biology opposing my non-binary gender identity. I hope my two cents helps a bit ✨

    Gay guy here, and I've gotten a lot out of these characters as well. The initial reveal of Stamets & Culber's relationship stands as one of Disco's best moments for me.

    Though it does frustrate me that the big obstacle for both couples had to be ACTUAL DEATH. What I truly want to see is a Trek LGBTQ+ couple with normal relationship problems, like one of them gets possessed by a sexy alien, or transformed by a transporter accident, or abducted on their way to a conference.

    Can't wait for Gray to properly become an actual character next season. He played so well off the other cast in the finale.

    I am a kirksexual male and I think it is great to have representation. In my lifetime this went from hush-hush to normal. I really think representation helps prevent kids from being bigots.
