Winner of a Tony-Award for his Broadway debut in M. Butterfly, Wong is best known for television roles such as forensic psychiatrist Dr. George Huang on Law and Order: Special Victims Unit. Wong is also the author of Following Foo, a memoir about the birth of his son. His experiences in an industry fraught with rejection, stereotyping and racism have given him sharp perspectives on the subject of diversity. An advocate for the LGBTQ community, Wong will address issues such as racial self-image, Asian-American parental pressure and the "model minority myth," and the challenges of multiple identities.
