S.H.O.U.T! Keynote Speaker: George Takei

February 26, 2015, 8:00 PM


Actor, author, social justice activist, and social media star George Takei will deliver the keynote address during the annual student-organized S.H.O.U.T! week celebrating multiculturalism. Best known for his portrayal of Sulu in the television and film series Star Trek, Takei is an advocate for lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender rights and has appeared in several PSAs, including one in response to Tennessee's infamous "Don't Say Gay" bill in which he encourages viewers to say, "It's OK to be Takei." His recent projects include the musical Allegiance, inspired by his experiences growing up in Japanese-American internment camps during WWII.

Admission is free, but tickets are required. A limited number of tickets will be available to the public. The public may obtain tickets Wednesday, Feb. 18, from 10 a.m. to noon at Pulver Pavilion, Cotter Union, while supplies last.
