Actor Matt Bomer has ended speculation about his sexuality after coming out as a gay man while accepting an award for his HIV activism work.
The “White Collar” star, 34, was accepting the New Generation Arts and Activism award at the Steve Chase Humanitarian Awards in Palm Springs, California when he acknowledged his boyfriend, publicist Simon Halls, and his three children.
Bomer told the crowd, “I’d like to give a special shout out to my table… and 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.”
Matt has previously dodged talking about his sexuality, telling Details magazine in 2010, “I don’t care about that (gay rumors) at all. I’m completely happy and fulfilled in my personal life.”
