BD Wong is an American stage and screen actor who has starred in such diverse productions as Law and Order: SVU and Disney’s Mulan. Although Wong is popularly known for his film and television roles, he holds the singular honor of being the only actor to have been honored with a Tony Award, a Drama Desk Award, an Outer Critics Circle Award, a Clarence Derwent Award, and a Theater World Award for the same role: “Song Liling” in the debut of M. Butterfly, a play about gender roles and French imperialism. In 2003 he was honored with the Davidson/Valentini Award for outstanding media representation at the 14th Annual GLAAD Media Awards.

In his personal life Wong actively contributes to a number of queer charities, including the Ali Forney Center, an organization focused on LGBT homeless youth.
