George Takei to receive social justice award at Critics Choice LGBTQ+ celebration

George Takei will receive a social justice award at the Critics Choice Association’s (CCA) inaugural Celebration of LGBTQ+ Cinema & Television.

The celebration will be held on June 7 at the Fairmont Century Plaza in Los Angeles, CA. According to a press release, Takei will receive the award for his “tireless fight for LGBTQ+ rights, racial justice, and marriage equality.”

Kristen Kish is also set to receive the TV Host Award for hosting Bravo’s Top Chef.

“I am extremely proud to be able to announce this inaugural event showcasing the best performances from the LGBTQ+ community in film and television,” said Joey Berlin, CEO of the Critics Choice Association. “A significant number of the CCA’s membership identifies as LGBTQ+, so this Celebration is extremely meaningful to our organization.”
