Thursday Morning Man: BD Wong!

City Center Sondheim Gala – B.D. WongB.D. Wong , a longtime cast member of NBC’s Law & Order: SVU, has been an out and proud actor for many years – long before Neil Patrick Harris, T.R. Knight, Luke MacFarlane, John Barrowman and others were out publicly.

While he was also in the cast of the late, great HBO prison drama OZ, B.D. first achieved stardom on stage, winning the Tony Award for his role in the Broadway production of M. Butterfly. He is the only actor to have been honored with the Tony Award, Drama Desk Award, Outer Critics Circle Award, Clarence Derwent Award, and Theatre World Award for the same performance.

The 49-year-old B.D. played Margaret Cho’s brother on her ABC sitcom All-American Girl and was Martin Short’s flamboyant wedding planner assistant in Father of the Bride and its sequel.

In 2000, B.D. and his now ex-partner Richie Jackson had twin sons: Boaz Dov, who died 90 minutes after birth, and Jackson Foo Wong. They were born through a surrogate mother, using B.D.’s sperm and an egg donated by Jackson’s sister. In 2003, Wong wrote a memoir about his experiences with surrogacy titled Following Foo: the Electronic Adventures of the Chestnut Man. He and Jackson ended their 16-year relationship in 2004.

One Remark

  1. I think you are great BD. And very courageous for being your true and genuine self. Eventhough I am a straight very religious catholic, I am all for tolerance and equal rights in marriage for everyone. Keep up all the great work with It Will Get Better. I hope one day no kid will feel so lost, alone, and hopeless that harming themselves is the only relief.
