The Eighth annual comic con event returns to the Miami Airport Convention Center on July 4-7, with George Takei, as one of the headliners.
Science fiction fans know Takei as Mr. Sulu from the original Star Trek television series,which aired from 1966- 1969. In recent years, Takei has become a social media favorite, particularly on Facebook, and he has written about this experience in Oh Myyy! (There Goes the Internet). However, some of his fans may not know that as a child during World War II, Takei was incarcerated in Japanese-American internment camps in the U.S. He has also starred in a musical, Allegiance, which explores this often untold part of American history. A Broadway debut is anticipated for 2014.
In a phone interview with SFGN, Takei reflected, “When I was a teenager, marriage equality was an unthinkable thing. Now it is inevitable. I’m very optimistic about the [upcoming] Supreme Court ruling.”
