I began hearing rumors B.D. Wong was gay when he entered mainstream TV playing a prison clergyman on HBO's now extinct, but memorably racy, show Oz. After five seasons behind the fake prison gates, Wong hopped on the midnight train to Law & Order: Special Victims Unit. These credits come after an accomplished career as a stage and film actor. B.D. Wong's diversity on stage and behind the camera is to be admired; not to mention the challenge of being a gay man and same-sex dad.
