Takei, known for his iconic role as Captain Sulu in the “Star Trek” films and television series, talks to host Chuck Long about life as an actor, his role as an activist, marriage to husband Brad and his legacy project. He also reveals what prompted him to make a video addressing Stacey Campfield’s "Don’t Say Gay" bill.


“Someone like Stacey Campfield doesn’t know the Constitution,” Takei says. “The First Amendment says you have freedom of speech. You can’t criminalize a teacher for using the word gay. That’s against the Constitution. So you’ve got to start electing politicians who know what they’re talking about, and who know what it means to be an American. That man is not American.”


Make sure to catch this special episode when it airs Friday, March 8 at 10 p.m., Saturday, March 9 at 9:30 p.m. and Sunday, March 10 at 10 p.m. on Channel 5+ (Comcast channel 250) and repeats March 22, 23 and 24.


Zach Wahls, best known for his passionate testimony in front of the Iowa House Judiciary Committee in regards to a proposed constitutional ban on marriage equality, spoke at Vanderbilt University in February. Wahls drops by the Out & About Today studios to discuss his GLBT activism which includes his 2012 book, “My Two Moms: Lessons of Love, Strength, and What Makes a Family”.


In addition to Wahls, singer songwriter Luke McMaster stops by to chat with Out & About Today host Chuck Long. McMaster is currently riding high on the debut of his solo single “Good Morning Beautiful,” a song he collaborated on with Jim Brickman. McMaster is currently on tour with Brickman.
