Takei has been everywhere lately: on TV, in Hawaii Five-O and The New Normal; voicing characters on Transformers Prime, Adventure Time, and Futurama; and on stage, starring in Allegiance, a musical set in the Japanese-American internment during World War II and inspired by his personal experience. As active as Takei is on issues that face LGBTs globally — including campaigning for marriage equality and the relocation of the 2014 Winter Olympics from Sochi, Russia — he sees a bright future. “When younger people have two uncles or when two male friends of Daddy’s and Mommy’s get married, it’s no big thing — it’s natural. That’s the way it should be… In their innocence there’s great wisdom.”
