[News, Posted 4/17/12]
Actor, activist, and icon George Takei has gone where few (okay, none) have gone before: WWII Internment Camp survivor, swashbuckling starship pilot, movie star, fanboy peace-broker, voice-over artist, 2012 Celebrity Apprentice contestant, and a booming voice for marriage equality and civil rights.

Since there’s no one else quite like him, it’s only fitting that New York-based community organization Geeks OUT is paying tribute to his achievements, legacy, and handsome face with a special one-night event called Takei Back the Night.
