Matt Bomer Comes Out as Gay Man

Matt Bomer has long kept quiet about his private life.

But the White Collar hunk decided to change all that this  weekend

While accepting an award at the Desert AIDS Project‘s Steve Chase Humanitarian Awards in  Palm Springs, Bomer acknowledged that he is gay by giving a special shout-out to  his longtime partner, Hollywood publicist Simon Halls, and  their three children.

“I’d really especially like to thank my beautiful family: Simon, Kit, Walker, Henry,”  Bomer  said during the gala at the Palm Springs Convention   Center.  “Thank you for  teaching me what unconditional love is. You will always  be my proudest  accomplishment. God bless you.”

Bomer, who’s preparing for his role as a gay journalist who contracts HIV in Ryan Murphy‘s upcoming film adaptation of Larry  Kramer‘s The Normal Heart, was honored with the New  Generation Arts & Activism Award for his work in the fight against the  disease.

“My world has really been rocked by doing research for Normal Heart,   just in terms of the history of HIV and AIDS,” he said. “And so I’m   very  proud to receive this award from an organization that is at the   forefront of  carrying the torch into a very, very bright future.”

While he hasn’t come out publicly until now, the 34-year-old actor has  publicly supported many gay causes including the Trevor Project and GLSEN. He will also star alongside George Clooney in Dustin Lance Black‘s stage show 8, which outlines the California trial  which overturned the state’s same-sex marriage ban.

Back in January 2010 during an interview with Details,   Bomer was asked about reports that he is  gay. “I don’t care about that   at all,” he told the mag. “I’m completely happy  and fulfilled in my   personal life.”

Bomer will next be seen as one of the male strippers in the upcoming flick Magic Mike and today, he is shooting a guest spot on Glee.
