“To Be Takei” out on DVD this week!

Oh myyyyyy.

If you are a George Takei fan then I have great news for you: To Be Takei, the documentary about the Star Trek icon and LGBT activist is out on DVD this week.

Over seven decades, George boldly journeyed from a WWII internment camp, to the helm of the Starship Enterprise, to the daily news feeds of five million Facebook fans. Viewers get to join George and his husband Brad on this star’s playful and profound trek for life, liberty, and love.

George’s website states: Best known for playing Sulu on the original Star Trek TV series and six movies that followed, George Takei is unlikely social media royalty. Unofficially dubbed the King of Facebook, he counts over 5 million fans in his online empire — including Trekkies, Howard Stern listeners, and the LGBTQ community — who devour his quirky mix of kitten jokes, Star Trek references, heartfelt messages, and sci-fi/fantasy memes. An outspoken advocate for civil rights, Takei has used his unmistakable baritone in several satiric PSAs, including one in response to Tennessee’s infamous “Don’t Say Gay” bill that encourages viewers to say, “It’s OK to be Takei.” His current projects include the musical Allegiance, drawn from his experience of growing up in Japanese American internment camps during World War II, and the recently published Oh Myyy! There Goes the Internet.
