Matt Bomer Comes Out, Thanks Boyfriend in Acceptance Speech

by at . Comments

It's no secret that Matt Bomer is gay.

The White Collar star has been with partner Simon Halls for years and the couple even has three sons together.

But it was still noteworthy Saturday night when the actor took to the stage at the Steve Chase Humanitarian Awards to accept the New Generation Arts and Activism Award for his work in the fight against HIV/AIDS and publicly thanked acknowledged Halls for the first time, saying:

"I'd really especially like to thank my beautiful family: Simon, Kit, Walker, Henry. Thank you for teaching me what unconditional love is. You will always be my proudest accomplishment."


Sadly I'm only reading this story and finding out that he's "Family" months after he came out and then months after he publicly thanked his Life Partner Simon and their three beautiful children. Good for him..
It's only when we ourselves start to be proud of who and what we are, and stop hiding who we truly are not only from our jobs, but from our friends, co-workers, and our families that finally most of society will realize that Homosexual Men and Women are no different than Heterosexual.


I love his show & think it was nice to have included his family in his thank you ... Family is so important in a persons life
