Matt Dallas from ‘Kyle XY’ Comes Out, Announces Engagement

Former Kyle XY star Matt Dallas revealed Sunday night via Twitter that he is gay and engaged to Los Angeles musician Blue Hamilton. Here’s how he did it.

There had been much speculation about the 30-year-old actor’s sexual orientation for years, including rumors that he was linked to Mean Girls actor Jonathan Bennett back in 2009. However, according to US Weekly, Dallas and Hamilton have been “quietly dating” since 2009.

Dallas’ coming-out seems to be following a current trend of celebrities like Matt Bomer and Anderson Cooper, who were neither hiding their orientation nor making a big announcement about it via a public media blitz. It’s looking as though being gay is now becoming a non-issue.

While Dallas’ IMDB page only lists Thunder Road for upcoming projects, he¬†recently starred in the Hallmark Channel holiday movie Naughty or Nice. Other film and TV credits include Beauty & the Briefcase, Eastwick and You, Me & The Circus.
