Matt Bomer Comes Out

Which makes him the hottest TV guy to ever come out, yes?

That is so cool! I'm so pleased to see more and more of these guys coming out. One day it's not even going to be a matter of coming out; we will always know, which is how it should be. There are a myriad of variety in people out there, and no one should have to hide because of how the world supposedly perceives them.

As Sir Ian McKellen succintly put it, "I'm an actor. Why should people believe I am a wizard, but not that I could be in love with a woman?" (or words to that effect). They are actors, after all; if our disbelief about who they are playing cannot be suspended, they are failing to do the job, or we are failing to believe in them.

And believing in them should not depend on who they spend their lives with. It's going to do so many young gay people so much better to have these role models out and proud.

Man, I hope so!

Ian McKellen is made of awesome, as always. I think it's easier for the Brits to come out, especially if you're of a certain age! But then there's the hubbub with Luke Evans. He was openly out in the UK, now that he's becoming a big star in the US, he's sort of back in the closet. :-( Makes me sad. I think it's mostly publicists freaking out (most of whom are gay themselves!) but just ridiculous.

Haters are going to hate but the more that come out, the less of a big deal it is. Do you watch Southland, btw? A major character on the show is (fairly quietly) gay but it's dealt with really well. He's just incredibly awesome in every way and so not a stereotype.

That's such a pity about Luke Evans, but you're bound to be right about the publicists. It's definitely easier in the UK and Europe too, I think. And yeah, over 60 or so - way easier!!! It's like no one in America cares if they aren't young and 'lead' material. Just stupid!

You're so right; the more come out, the less of a big deal it is!

No, I haven't watched Southland, but maybe I should! Sounds good. Thanks for the rec!
