George Takei (born 1937) is an American film and television actor and LGBT activist. He is best known for the role of Hikaru Sulu in the Star Trek television series, and in subsequent feature-length movies that continued the Star Trek franchise into the 1990s. In September 2008, the homosexual Takei entered a same-sex "marriage" with his longtime business manager, Brad Altman, in California.
Takei spoke in an interview on the Howard Stern TV chat-show in 2006 about how he had been molested (he claimed it as being "seduced") at the age of 14 by an older man. Takei shared details of his first sexual experience with the host and co-host Robin Quivers, telling how he, as a 14-year-old boy, was "seduced" by an “18- or 19”-year-old counselor at a Boy Scout summer camp at Lake Arrowhead in Los Angeles. Takei said he lost his "virginity" [using the word in a strange sense] to the older man. He said it was the first time he’d ever done anything sexual and he claimed he "did not know" he was homosexual at the time.
