From The B.D. Of The Wong

Thursday, April 02, 2009

You know what I like about this article that highlights actor B.D. Wong talking about being gay, Asian American, and an activist?

It's this:

"I always wanted to kind of be an actor, to tell stories, to learn my craft and all that corny stuff," he said. "But I didn't really like this other kind of stuff that came with it -- mainly the fame part of it -- until I started going on to the colleges and out around the country talking about what I care about talking about and saw that the combination of those two things was a sweet combination."
He's not just sitting on his ass using his fame and popularity for his own devices - he's out there, he's making a difference - and he's being heard.
