Matt Bomer, the 46-year-old Fellow Travelers actor, recently received The Hollywood Reporter's Trailblazer Award at the SCAD TVfest in Atlanta. He was recognized for his efforts in telling LGBTQ+ stories through projects such as Fellow Travelers, Maestro, and The Normal Heart. During his acceptance speech, Bomer spoke about his experience growing up in a conservative town in Houston and how he did not come out to his family until later in life. He explained that he played by the rules and didn't feel safe coming out during a different time when the stakes were high. Matt eventually came out to his family in his mid-twenties by writing them a letter, as he didn't feel comfortable doing it in person. He emphasized the importance of finding grace in his relationship with his family and how it has taught him about the complexities of the human experience. Recently, Bomer shared a rare personal photo with his husband.
