5 Gay Dads Who Are Leading the Way for LGBTQ Families
Here is a list of five gay dads who are setting a positive parenting example to the LGBTQ community and world as a whole.
The modern family has come a long way from 2.4 children, set within the traditional nuclear unit. Gay parents are now commonplace, with laws around the world gradually changing to legalize gay marriage and adoption.
With this sentiment in mind, and with the beginning of Pride season this June, here is a celebration of five gay dads who set a fine parenting example to the gay community and world as a whole.
#2: B.D Wong
Bradley Darryl Wong, more commonly known as B.D is an award-winning actor of both the stage and screen. As well as appearing in blockbusters such as Seven Years in Tibet, and Jurassic Park, and voicing Disney hit Mulan, B.D is also dad to twin boys, but one tragically died shortly after birth.
His surviving son, Jackson Foo Wong, is now a healthy teenager but had a tough start in life, spending time in the neonatal unit. B.D turned to humor to get him through those dark days, and later published a book about his experiences of being a gay dad and surrogacy titled "Following Foo: the Electronic Adventures of the Chestnut Man".
B.D is also a committed supporter of many LGBT charities, donating both his time and money to the cause. The New York-based Ali Forney Centre is one organization close to his heart, supporting homeless LGBT youngsters.
