GENESIS of GAAAYS IN SPAAACE:

'GAAAYS IN SPAAACE’ ('GIS') was created in 2016 to celebrate the historic step forward taken in the film STAR TREK: BEYOND by finally including members of the LGBTQ Community in the STAR TREK Universe.

The inaugural 'GAAAYS IN SPAAACE: EQUALITY CELEBRATION TOUR' kicked things off with 12 individual events which spanned seven major US cities, featured over a dozen celebrity guests, and was attended by over 1,000 fans.

The organization is both endorsed and supported by the Gene Roddenberry Foundation and Gene's son, Rod Roddenberry.

In fact, Rod told ‘GIS’ Founder & Executive Director Dan Deevy that ‘GIS’ was exactly the kind of organization that his father would have supported and that he’d be proud of the impact that it’s having.

We have also received the most genuine, heartfelt support from so many members of the STAR TREK family; for which we could not be more grateful.

Many have donated their time and talent by appearing at our events, others have helped to spread the word via their personal social media accounts and some have even autographed ‘GIS’ items which were given away to fans as prizes!

We’re proud to say that ‘GAAAYS IN SPAAACE’ events continue to be celebrations of historic importance for LGBTQ Trekkies and all of our straight allies who have forever maintained that this day would eventually arrive!
