Takei to Be Inducted Into California Hall of Fame

George TakeiGay actor George Takei is among the 2016 California Hall of Fame inductees, the second time a member of the LGBT community has been granted such an honor during Governor Jerry Brown’s current term.

Brown and his wife, Anne Gust Brown, along with the California Museum, announced the 10th class of inductees in a news release issued today (Monday, October 3).

“I am a proud second generation Californian, humbled to be honored by a state singular in its beauty, diversity and dynamism,” stated Takei, famous for his role as Lieutenant Sulu in the science fiction series Star Trek and a vocal supporter of LGBT rights. “To be inducted to join the inspiring trail blazers in the arts, industry, academia, sports and political affairs is an honor beyond words. This is truly the Golden State.”
