American Horror Story alum Matt Bomer is featured in the June/July 2017 issue of OUT Magazine.
In the issue Matt talks coming out to his parents:
“Telling your family is a huge, huge deal. I really view my life as divided between the time before I told my parents, and the time after. And the decisions I made, and the life I lived, before and after, are vastly different. It’s night and day.”
He talks growing up in the Bible Belt:
“One of the ways I learned how to act, really is by having secrets and having to function as a kid in a public school in suburban Bible Belt Texas. It was not an environment where it was safe to be gay.”
He also talks growing up with a family of artists:
“We had artists in our family, but they were like closet artists. My grandmother was a wonderful painter, my uncle was an incredible self-taught guitarist-singer-songwriter, but never an actor. So I was the black sheep in that way, but I had a really specific plan.”
