George Takei Toronto

Star Trek's George Takei coming to Toronto this summer

Get ready to gush, Trekkies. George Takei is coming to Toronto this summer, and you'll be able to get up close and personal with him as part of Pride's programming. The former Star Trek star and current social media darling will give a talk on June 26 at the Ryerson Theatre.

Mega fans will want to take advantage of the VIP tickets, which include access to a private reception with Takei. Even more exciting is that the first batch of tickets to the event are free, though they're bound to get swallowed up quickly.

Takei will speak about social justice and equal rights, and his own narrative which traces back to Japanese internment camps during World War II.

While he's most famous for his role as helmsman on the original Star Trek series, in recent years he's become profoundly popular on social media, where he often humorously shares insights about current events and equality issues.
