"When I first became a father, the one thing that I learned that I didn't really realize before is how much you have to want to be a father to become a father when you're gay. You have to put much more effort into it. . . . When you become a parent when you're gay, you have to really know that you want to do it."

--Tony-award winning actor B.D. Wong, speaking to the Washington Blade
