Trekkies rejoice! Star Trek: The Next Generation star Denise Crosby will be this year's Boston pride parade Celebrity Marshal. Crosby played Tasha Yar, a character long considered the show's closest thing to a lesbian.

Boston Pride is excited to announce that Denise Crosby will be a Celebrity Marshal, marching in this year's Pride Parade on Saturday, June 8th! Denise Crosby played Lt. Tasha Yar on one of the most popular TV series ever, STAR TREK, THE NEXT GENERATION.
Denise currently resides in L.A. with her husband, writer Ken Sylk, their son, Augie, and three goldfish, two cats, and a very sweet Basset Hound named Clementine.

I'm not quite sure how she's pertinent to the struggle for LGBT equality (especially since her character on the show was never identified as a lesbian since the show shied away from anything remotely resembling LGBT people), but since she's the celebrity marshal, that's probably relative.
