Wanda Sykes est une humoriste, actrice, scénariste et productrice américaine née le 7 mars 1964 à Portsmouth, Virginie (États-Unis). Elle est connue pour ses commentaires comiques sur l'actualité, sur les différences entre les sexes et les races et sur la condition humaine. Comme actrice, elle est connue pour son rôle de Barb dans Old Christine. En 2004 Entertainment Weekly l'a nommée comme l'une des 25 personnes les plus drôles d'Amérique.
Sykes was married to record producer Dave Hall from 1991 to 1998. In November 2008, she publicly came out as gay while at a same-sex marriage rally in Las Vegas regarding Proposition 8. Sykes had just married her partner Alex Niedbalski, a French woman, a month earlier on October 25, 2008, whom she met in 2006. The couple also became parents on April 27, 2009, when Alex gave birth to a pair of fraternal twins, daughter Olivia Lou and son Lucas Claude.
Sykes only came out to her conservative mother Marion and father Harry when she was 40, who both initially had difficulty accepting her homosexuality. They declined to attend her wedding with Alex, which led to a brief period of estrangement, but have since reconciled and are now proud grandparents to the couple's children.
During a September 19, 2011 appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, Sykes announced that she had been diagnosed earlier in the year with ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS). Although DCIS is a non-invasive "stage zero breast cancer", Sykes had elected to have a bilateral mastectomy in order to lower her chances of getting breast cancer.
Sykes splits time living in both Los Angeles and Media, Pennsylvania, a suburb of Philadelphia.
Sykes has publicly expressed being devastated after California voters passed state Proposition 8. She said: "with the legislation that they passed, I can’t sit by and just watch. I just can’t do it." She has continued to be active in same-sex marriage issues hosting events and emceeing fundraisers. She has also worked with PETA on promoting dog anti-chaining legislation in her home state.
She has been an outspoken supporter of Detroit's Ruth Ellis Center after the organization's staff sent Sykes a letter asking her to visit during her 2010 tour's stop in Detroit.
