‘Kyle XY’ Star Matt Dallas Comes Out As A Gay Man


Very happy news to pass along today … actor Matt Dallas, most famous for his lead role on Kyle XY, has come out publicly as a gay man. Last night, Matt posted a message and photo on his official Twitter profile where he revealed that he is now engaged to be married to singer/songwriter Blue Hamilton. No press release, no magazine cover … no interview … Matt just posted a supercute photo of his fiancée (and their dog), just as normal as can be :D

Starting off the year with a new fiancé, @bluehamilton. A great way to kick off 2013!

When last we heard about Matt professionally here on the blog, it was 2010 and he was starring in an ABC Family made-for-TV movie with Hilary Duff titled Beauty and the Briefcase. But, for the past few years, Matt has been photographed out and about here in LA with Blue … tho, at the time, we did not know that the guys were together together:

I’m not exactly sure how long Matt and Blue have been together but these photos were snapped way back in 2009. It’s really heartening to not only see young love like this but to celebrate it as well. To be honest, there have been gay rumors about Dallas ever since he was on Kyle XY but generally, gay rumors abound in Hollywood about any young, good-looking guy. I’m so happy for Matt and Blue and I’m thrilled that they are now so comfortable with sharing their love and their lives with the world. This is a great way to start 2013, ain’t it?

    Trent, does it bother you when celebrities sell their coming out to a magazine like Lance Bass did?

    Bravo to Matt! Personally, as a lesbian, I applaud him for being so casual about his announcement. I realize we are making strides, but it’s still nice to see. That said, I’m not bothered by those who come out with more fanfare. I just think it’s refreshing when someone does it like Matt did. Congrats to him and Blue! They make a ridiculously good looking couple! :)

      PS. Another awesome example, imo, Sam Champion of Good Morning America.
