TV star Matt Dallas comes out as gay:
Dallas wrote on his Twitter account on Sunday, January 6: “Starting off the year with a new fiancé, Blue Hamilton. A great way to kick off 2013!”
*There has been widespread confusion in recent days when Matt’s fiancé has been misidentified as Brandon “Blue” Hamilton, an African-American Atlanta-based songwriter who has worked with Justin Bieber. Not one and the same.
In early 2009, Matt had been linked to "Mean Girls" actor Jonathan Bennett, from whom he split that same summer. In September, 2009, Dallas and Hamilton were spotted together on a date at a restaurant in West Hollywood.
Engagements are becoming an understated way for gay celebrities to acknowledge their sexual orientation. In October, Good Morning America weatherman Sam Champion came out by mentioning his engagement (to partner Rubem Robierb) in a New York Times article; Champion and Robierb were married on December 21 in NYC. In contrast to magazine cover coming out declarations in the past (think Neil Patrick Harris and Lance Bass), low key statements have become the norm. "White Collar" star Matt Bomer came out while accepting an award last February, and "Star Trek" actor Zachary Quinto revealed he is gay during a profile in New York magazine in October, 2011.
Matt Dallas headed back to ABC Family, joining the cast of “Baby Daddy”, a sitcom starring Jean-Luc Bilodeau, who plays a twenty-something who navigates the world of being a single parent with the help of family and friends. Dallas will once more be working with his former “Kyle XY” co-star Bilodeau, who played his younger brother on that series. For three seasons of “Kyle XY” Dallas played Kyle, the belly-button-free character. Last August ABC Family renewed “Baby Daddy”, which launched as the top comedy series in the network's history. The second season will air this spring.
Much less is known about Blue Hamilton, who has numerous extra-musical interests. He renovates houses, is an avid dog enthusiast, an equal rights supporter, wine connoisseur and environmentalist.
