Here’s something you don’t hear every day.
Magic Mike star Matt Bomer is married to a man. And the couple have three sons, the oldest of whom — Kit — is 14.
Amid an appearance on RuPaul’s talk show, the usually-private actor opened up.
And RuPaul — who’s a super nice guy, by the way — asked Matt: What if his kids were to come out to him…as straight?
As it turns out, Kit has indeed done that very thing.
Matt told Ru:
“Our oldest came out to us as straight. He’s 14. He said, ‘I love and respect that you guys are who you are. I’m straight, that’s how I identify.’ And it was a big, nice, sweet moment.”
Ru jokingly replied, “Give him time, Matt. Give him time.”
Matt added that, as for their 11-year-old twins, Henry and Walker, “We would be there with open arms” regardless of their sexual identity.
Matt came out as gay in 2008, though he already had a family at that point.
Times are certainly changing. In days past, straight was considered the default. Now it seems there’s a bit more of an attitude of “either way, just as likely.”
Apropos, MTV’s dating show, Are You the One? recently changed its format to a bisexual free-for-all — see much more here.
