Coming out of the Dark (Ages)

13 Feb

I love to see high profile actors being honest about who they are.  It may seem insignificant, but to some young person – or hell, ANY person – dealing with their sexuality and the pressure and stigmas we, as a gay community, have to deal with, it’s nice to see more and more examples of it “getting better” and being okay to be who you are.  Be proud, y’all.  Hiding your beautiful spirits hurts no one but yourselves.  Thank you to Matt Bomer.

Having been the subject of tabloid and blogosphere rumors for some time, Matt Bomer has finally gone public about his sexuality, thanking his partner in an acceptance speech over the weekend.

As Towleroad is reporting, the “White Collar” hunk came out during Saturday’s Steve Chase Humanitarian Awards, where he received the New Generation Arts and Activism Award for his work in the fight against HIV/AIDS. Upon accepting the award, he thanked his partner Simon Halls and his three children.

“I’d really especially like to thank my beautiful family: Simon, Kit, Walker, Henry,” he told the crowd. “Thank you for teaching me what unconditional love is. You will always be my proudest accomplishment.”

    I have never seen the show White Collar but thing it is great that now days more and more actors do not feel they have to hide who they are…………

      I think what must first be done, however, is for us to make the world a safe place outside those closets. That world, unfortunately, does not yet exist. But it is getting better.
