White Collar's Matt Bomer Comes Out


I know this news is a few days old, which in internet time is an eternity, but I just wanted to say a quick congratulations to the impossibly beautiful Matt Bomer who officially came out publicly while accepting an award for his charity work. Of course, it wasn't one of those "Hey everyone! I'm G-A-Y!" announcement. In fact he simply thanked his family listing off the names of his partner Simon and their kids. To those not in the know, they'd be none the wiser, but it was nonetheless greeted by many as a shattering of the glass closet they believed Bomer was in.

Still, others maintain that Bomer's speech changed nothing at all, but that's their cross to bear. Bomer in the meantime will continue to live his life with his loving family and working in Hollywood. And I do mean working. Apart from starring on his hit TV show White Collar, he's also set to participate in a limited-engagement reading of Dustin Lance Black's play 8 as well as do a quick stint on Glee. He'll also appear in the film Magic Mike as one of a few male strippers and the film version of Larry Kramer's The Normal Heart taking over the part played by John Benjamin Hickey in Broadway that won him a Tony Award. Read my thoughts on that play here.

And to think, it seemed as if it was just yesterday when I first mentioned Bomer on this blog. Pretty crazy ride.
