Oh my.

LGBTQ activist, Star Trek actor and living meme George Takei will be speaking at Rollins College January 17. 

Takei's speaking event "Where No Story Has Gone Before: An Evening with George Takei" will discuss the 4 years as a child he spent in an World War 2 internment camp as a child, his sci-fi celebrity status and newfound internet popularity, and his fight for LGBTQ equality. 

Takei spent four years of his childhood with his family in a Japanese internment camp in World War II. As an adult, he became famous from his role as Hikaru Sulu in the original Star Trek televisions show, and has appeared on many other shows. He has almost 10 million fans on Facebook and close to two million followers on Twitter.

While no price has yet been set, you'll be able to buy tickets for the event at the Rollins Box Office.
