George Takei Speaks at The National Press Club

Recently, actor and activist George Takei spoke to The National Press Club about his life story, from his personal experience as a child growing up in a Japanese internment camp to his life as a gay man and coming out. He spoke for over 40 minutes without notes with humor sprinkled in between, and at the end, answered a few audience questions (including what a gay Vulcan would be like). If you’re a fan of Takei and his social activism, this is worth your time to watch him tell his journey as a kid to an activist and actor today.

About John

I'm a Taiwanese-American and was born & raised in Western Massachusetts, went to college in upstate New York, worked in Connecticut, went to grad school in North Carolina and then moved out to the Bay Area in 1999 and have been living here ever since - love the weather and almost everything about the area (except the high cost of housing...)
