The 34-year-old White Collar actor received the New Generation Arts & Activism award for his work with HIV/AIDS awareness.

At the ceremony, Matt publicly thanked his partner, Simon Halls (pictured), and their children on stage for the first time.

“I’d really especially like to thank my beautiful family: Simon, Kit, Walker, Henry,” Matt said. “Thank you for teaching me what unconditional love is. You will always be my proudest accomplishment.”

    Yay! An even better reason to love him now that he’s out and proud!
    When I met him a few months ago he was so nice and offered to sign autographs for all my family members and take pictures! Such a great personality and so kind!
    He’s such a great Dad, husband, actor, all of the above!

    Is everyone in Hollywood gay? I’m happy for Matt, don’t get me wrong, but it just seems like there aren’t ANY straight guys in Hollywood. Just gay or bi.

    I’m confused. I thought he was already out? Just because he doesn’t give the media all the details of his personal life doesn’t mean he’s in the closet.

    People always knew he was gay, it’s only the crazy fangirls who thought otherwise.

    Good to him and his partner and his kids.

    @I know: It’s not actually a waste as gay people now go through IVF or find another way to spread their genes instead of adopting.

    I don’t get it. There is a huge difference between something that’s personal & private and something that is a secret. Matt Bomer was never IN the closet as far as I could see. So this whole “he came out” thing is silly. He was out.

    He was just living his life and being himself. Not hiding. The media seems like they insist that they have to be in everyone’s personal business. Well, not everyone is like the Kardashians.

    Don[‘t get me wrong. I’m glad he thanked his beautiful family. But everyone thanks their families. Are gay people so different that when they thank their family it is a headline? I like Matt. I’m happy he has such a loving adorable family and I respect him for being protective of their privacy. I hate these celebrities who have to plaster their kids faces everywhere. Jessica Alba I’m talking to you.

    @leslie: Er, his “crazy fangirls” all knew he was gay, and were completely supportive. Get a clue before you post total nonsense.

    Awesome! Even if he wasn’t exactly “in”, so happy that he did this and people now can stop criticizing him.

    Also, congrats for the award!!!

    @lima: Pretty much. Also, this is about as surprising as Adam Lambert’s announcement.
