GLAAD's Damon Romine attended the weekend wedding of former Star Trek actor and outspoken gay activist George Takei to his partner of 21 years, Brad Altman.

From GLAAD's report on the nuptials, which took place at the Democracy Forum of the Japanese American National Museum, "the museum Takei helped create to honor those forced, as he was, to live in WWII internment camps.": "Officiated by a Buddhist priest, the ceremony featured koto music and the san-san-kudo sake ritual. Takei, 71, and Altman, 54, exchanged matching turquoise wedding bands designed by Navajo silversmith Clyde Woody. The couple wrote their own vows. 'I vow to care for you as you’ve cared for me … and to love you as my husband and the only man in my life,' Takei said as he held Altman’s hands. The priest then pronounced them 'spouses for life.' A bagpiper led the newlyweds to their reception as family and friends greeted the couple with streamers and confetti."
