George Takei Is Straight... Up Asking You To Do This One Thing

You probably know that actor George Takei is gay. But now he's straight... up asking you to register to vote.

"I'm especially concerned about the future of this country, because I'm concerned about the gay people of the future," Takei says in a new video released by OurTime.org, in which he "straight up" encourages straight couples to register to vote.

"I'm talking to straight young couples because you are going to be producing the gay babies of tomorrow," Takei says. "The future is up to you."

OurTime also released a video featuring JennxPenn, a YouTube star who just turned 18 and lists voting as one of the "cool new things you can do" after that milestone.

Watch Takei's message on voting above, and visit OurTime.org for more information.
