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.

Matt Bomer Comes Out As Gay: 'White Collar' Actor Thanks Partner Simon Halls, Kids At Awards Ceremony

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."

Bomer, 34, has previously declined to comment on rumors about his love life. "I don't care about that at all," he told Details in 2010. "I'm completely happy and fulfilled in my personal life."

Halls is known in Hollywood circles as a power publicist .

Of course, Bomer has never lacked for gay appeal. Not only will he soon be seen alongside Mark Ruffalo and Alec Baldwin in the film adaptation of Larry Kramer's HIV/AIDS drama "The Normal Heart," the actor is also slated to play the older brother of gay character Blaine Anderson (Darren Criss) on the hit TV series "Glee." He's also starred in the Broadway reading of Dustin Lance Black's play "8" about California's voter-approved ban on same-sex marriage.

Yas Boner is HOT. Too hot to be straight. A few hot men coming out as gay recently is making me happy.

Thankfully it isn't just queeny fugs like Lance Bass and Neil Patrick Harris that are coming out. :yeah:

NPH annoys me. I don't even know why. My homophobic father loves him though.

It's nice seeing really low-key coming outs like this. Everyone knew though, didn't they. I mean he was pictured taking his husband's kids out and wearing a ring. :lol:

These impossibly handsome people need to stop coming out of the closet. Everytime stuff like this happens I get a glimmer of hope I could maybe have a chance with them, only to face the crushing reality that my chances are still 0%.

He's one of the leads in the upcoming Steven Soderbergh film 'Magic Mike' which also stars Matthew McConaughey, Channing Tatun, and Alex Pettyfer. They all play male strippers :drool:
He will also be on Glee :D

I've never seen his TV Show 'White Collar' however, might have to check it out soon.

Watching White Collar does his hotness a lot more justice than the crap on google images. That said, White Collar got me bored after 5 eps. It's just the same plot structure repeated each ep.
