To Be Takei is a look at the remarkable life and career of TV icon and LGBT advocate George Takei, who was honored with GLAAD's Vito Russo Award at the 25th Annual GLAAD Media Awards in New York City. The actor, advocate, social media star and author has remained one of the most intelligent LGBT voices in Hollywood. Since coming out in 2005, he has spoken out on issues including marriage equality, the Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA), so-called "ex-gay therapy" and more. He has also worked closely with GLAAD to bring equality to the Boy Scouts and supported GLAAD's Spirit Day campaign to show support for LGBT youth and end anti-LGBT bullying.
