Matt Bomer sexuality
Matt Bomer came out as gay in 2012 while accepting his Steve Chase Humanitarian Award. In his acceptance speech, the actor for the first time publicly acknowledged his partner, Simon Halls, and their three children together.
The actor and father of three said:
“I’d really especially like to thank my beautiful family: Simon, Kitt, Walker, Henry.”
Before the 2012 event, Bomer has always declined to comment about his personal life and never addressed the growing rumours that he is gay.
Bomer later shared how difficult coming out to his parents was. According to him, he wrote his parents a letter explaining his sexuality but received radio silence from them for half a year before he finally got the courage to travel home to confront them.
In an interview with Out Magazine in 2017, the actor said:
I would have lost my sense of direction if I tried to do it in person. There was radio silence for a long, long time, at least six months. I would say within a matter of years we started to figure it out. It was a struggle. It’s a struggle for anybody to take their paradigms and set of beliefs and understandings and completely flip the script. So I’m empathetic toward everyone.
‘I’m here to tell people it can get better. Because I had so many people in my life saying, “You need to get rid of all expectations – you need to cut them out.” But I was like, “They’re my family.”
