NOH8 on Broadway: Michael Park, Kelli O'Hara, Nicholas Rodriguez, Megan Hilty and More Show Their Support for Equality

Michael Park, Megan Hilty and Nicholas Rodriguez.
A few months ago, the NOH8 Campaign returned to the Minskoff Theatre in Times Square to host it's second #NOH8onBroadway photo shoot. The Broadway community turned out in full force to show their support for equality - including some of the 2014 Tony Award winners and nominees.

Participating were many of our favorite Broadway actors, who also shine bright in film, TV and on the Web. Check out a few of our the multi-talented stars in the NOH8 photos below.

Michael Park won two Daytime Emmy Awards for his portrayal of Jack Snyder in the CBS soap opera As the World Turns. He's also made his mark on the Web in series like Gotham and Steamboat. His impressive list of Broadway credits include "How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying," "Smokey Joe's Cafe" and "Cat on a Hot Tin Roof." He's currently in rehearsal for NBC's upcoming "Peter Pan Live!" on December 4, and made his first appearance in Chicago P.D. last week for what is scheduled to be a three-episode arc.

The humble Park recently joked with Serial Scoop about where he ranks in the hierarchy of Broadway "stars."

"If there were B-List Broadway stars, I would be maybe a C-List Broadway star," he said.

Five-time Tony Award-nominee Kelli O'Hara has starred in many Broadway shows including "The Bridges of Madison County," "Nice Work If You Can Get It," "South Pacific," "The Pajama Game" and "The Light in the Piazza."

In 2007, she appeared in a three-episode guest arc on the ABC daytime drama All My Children as Leslie, a lesbian who offers provided comfort for Bianca (played by the also multi-talented Eden Riegel). Earlier this year she guest-starred in the hit web series Submissions Only.

Like Park, she is starring in NBC's upcoming production of "Peter Pan Live!"

Nicholas Rodriguez played Nick Chavez on ABC soap One Life to Live who was one-third of a 2009 gay love triangle storyline. He then played Dan in the Indie Series Award-winning comedy Then We Got Help! On Broadway, he's starred in "Tarzan."

"I'm so proud to be a part of the Broadway community. It's more than a collection of actors, directors, musicians, designers and technicians….it's a family that comes together to support one another in the good times and the tough times," explained Rodriguez.

Megan Hilty gave an outstanding performance as Ivy Lynn during the two season run of NBC's primetime serial Smash. In 2007, she appeared in Ugly Betty, and did a two-episode stint on Desperate Housewives in 2009.  Last season she starred in the comedy Sean Saves the World. She guest-starred this year in the web series It Could Be Worse.

Her Broadway credits include "9 to 5: The Musical" and "Wicked."
