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."
