BREAKING Matt Dallas - OUT! & Engaged to be married!
Matt Dallas has met his match!
The former star of ABC Family's Kyle XY announced his engagement to musician Blue Hamilton via Twitter Jan. 6. "Starting off the year with a new fiance," the actor, 30, wrote. "A great way to kick off 2013!"
This is the first time Dallas has mentioned his homosexuality publicly.
Hamilton is a California-based singer-songwriter. The two have been quietly dating since 2009.
Dallas recently starred in the Hallmark Channel holiday movie Naughty or Nice. His other notable film and TV credits include Beauty & the Briefcase, Eastwick and You, Me & The Circus.
The Arizona-born actor has also appeared in music videos for Katy Perry and James Blunt.
Way to go Matt!!!!!!!
They could kind of pass for brothers. Same nose.
Never heard of him before but cute couple. Good for them. The more out people the better.
He must be OVAH cause no one seems to care.
This can't be, Matt Dallas as always been straight!
What do you expect R7? The truth is he hasn't been on anyone's popculture radar since Kyle XY ended and that was back in 2009. Since then he has had some minor roles in movies no one saw. It would have a been a bigger story if he came out then, though it is nice he finally did.
[quote]He must be OVAH cause no one seems to care.
Isn't that the way it almost always works? These celebs only like to come out when the peak of their career is long over and they've got nothing to lose.
I thought he said on Howard Stern that he was totally straight and had slept with, like, 20 girls in high school?
R10 You're right but better late than never.
Matt Dallas is gay?!! I'm shocked.
They are both attractive and young and (presumably) rich. I hate them. Regardless: congrats, boys.
Agree that this would've been BREAKING in 2009 or earlier. Now, not so much. But nice to hear he's out and getting married. Lucky bitch.
Matt's REAL voice (not the deep, emotionless monotone one he uses in public so he doesn't "sound" gay):
Perez Hilton must be in the `told ya so` mode for the past 12 months, now only Jesse Metcalfe to come out.
Am I recalling correctly but didn't Matt once 'date' that Blu Cantrell actress? Or at least, he was linked to her in the press? Be about...3 years ago. What a hoot.
Lol, bet that was to throw everyone off!
Nice-looking couple though, Matt and his Blue, good luck to them.
He is the one in the video clip that served Kathy Griffin at some restaurant in WeHo and had no shame about his gaity, right? Then hit the closet for Kyle XY?
So much for the "girlfriends" he said he had some years ago on Kimmel and other talk shows huh?
r19, Dallas was one of the waiters at one of Kathy's children benefit parties (first season?) where he supposedly hit on a female guest and Kathy was all 'damn fool, you are not here to flirt with women! Work, work, work!'.
Too bad this is about a bunch of nobodies.
It would be weird if he dated a girl named "Blu" and then datad a boy named "Blue," right?
I like blue.
Yeah, R23, the problem is totally not that we have people running around named "Blu[e]" in the first place.
They asked him who his ideal hot woman was on Stern, and his answer screamed gay to the high heavens. It was something like Meryl Streep, but not as old. He didn't have a clue what turns straight men on and just named some actress he likes. Stern and his cohorts were laughing about it.
Good for him.
Even I knew he was gay!
To me, the cutest aspect of the entire story is that when he made his Tweet, he gave the wrong username for his betrothed, and when the husband-to-be re-Tweeted it with the correct username, he had added "You better mean me."
Like I said in the other thread, it just makes me feel really happy that we live in a world where two guys can get engaged on social media, and get an overwhelming positive reception.

This would be so much more exciting if I knew who this was. Congrats to his fans?
Today is Greek Christmas. I am cancer-free, VOTN got into an accredited medical school, and Matt Dallas finally came out -- it a fun way.
I don't ask for much from you bitches.
Ok. Now let's hope Colton Haynes doesn't get any new roles for 3 years...
Wait, did he actually say it? Because there some here that insist it doesn't count unless he says I'm gay and is on the cover of a magazine.
I would be very impressed if I had the slightest idea who this boy was.
It made legitimate sources like Huffington Post. It's real.
And his fiance re-Tweeted it as well.
Also, most of the blogs have said that the two have been together since 2009, and even that he used to date Jonathan Bennett.

Matt's fiance looks lik Anthony Ryan from Project Runway!
This thread is useless without links to a sex tape!
[quote]...legitimate sources like Huffington Post.
You are so funny VotN.
Okay, I'd rate the Huffington Post slightly higher than, say Perez or TMZ.
I'm not confusing it with the New York Times, but I assume they wouldn't publish something that hadn't been confirmed...at least somewhere other than what they laughingly refer to as their Science section.
Anyway, I see on Google News that it's also on USA Today, E!, and CBS News.
The Voice of the Night
So happy for this cutie pie and his man.
Anyone know how his mom, Stella, is taking the news?
R34, how would he get a magazine cover when nobody knows or cares who he is?
I think Matt Dallas is a dumbass.
Now that he's gone from D- to Z-list, he wants to remind his fangurls he's still alive. Ain't that cute!
"This thread is useless without links to a sex tape!"
Would you settle for this?
So just so we're all clear: we hated this guy b/c he wasn't out enough for us.
Now, he's out and happy and we hate him.
Welcome to Datalounge, R49. It ain't called pointless bitchery for nothing!
Congrats to him (although I know DL called it a long time ago, and loudly).
Congratulations, R31! (I mean it sincerely)
Are we wrong to point he that he fervently denied being gay when he was popular and now is admitting it when his career is relatively dead R49?
I don't see anyone "hating" him here but those are the simple facts.
Now that his career is over.
Well, maybe this will revive his career. Be happy for him for finally doing the right thing and being happy doing it.
Whatever was in that link R47 it came up as Forbidden.
[quote]Whatever was in that link [R47] it came up as Forbidden.
It worked fine for me, but it's a picture of what's alleged to be Matt's penis.
The Voice of the Night
that aint a mans penis, thats a baby dick!
Mssrs. Tinymeat and Pozface. Next!
Does anyone else think that his fiance looks like Waldo of Where's Waldo fame?
Looks like a) Matt and Blue have been together since at least 2009, when they were photo'd by the paps going to a West Hollywood restaurant and b) they're friends with JustJared's Jared Eng -- in the pic at link, taken at Katy Perry's November 2011 birthday party, Matt and Blue are photographed (on left) with Jared and actor Will Peltz (Abduction, In Time, etc.)
That story you linked (the one that not so subtly implies that Dallas was dating Bennett) r66 is obviously dishing out journalism at its most prestigious.
They have identified the fiance Brandon Hamilton as the producer of the Justin Bieber records, which Brandon Hamilton is, but that is not the same guy that Dallas is involved with.
I don't care if he is shaped like a pear and has a baby penis, he has the face of an angel.
I hope that his coming out has a positive effect on his career, and that he gets some roles and a decent post Kyle KY career. It may give the courage and impetus for other young gay actors to come out and make others realize that gayness among actors is simply normal, nothing about which to be shocked. After all, they are actors: they act. They don't have to be who they portray.
What has Jonathan Bennett done in the last decade?
Is he even still acting?
was he the only one who didn't know???? about time!
Checking out his imdb profile he has actually been working fairly steadily R72 which I was surprised to see, just in nothing that is high profile.
I mean he's no longer relevant, if he ever really was, but good for him.
I wonder if agents/publicists in Hollywood only allow their clients to come out once they're engaged or married.
Other than Anderson Cooper and Zachary Quinto, I can't think of anyone who came out when they were still relevant without being attached or having adopted babies.
They don't want Young Hollywood Gays coming out when they're still sucking ever cock in sight. Only Pussy Hounds are allowed.
Fat thighs, tiny dick = SCREAMING BOTTOM!
His thighs look about average to me but I get the desperate need to look for flaws. The guys good looking and has enough going for him that some other handsome guy wants to commit to spending their life with him.
And there's something wrong with that, r77?
Can somebody please post another pic of his cock?
As for Jonathan Bennett, his last tweet since Dallas tweeted his info was "I think I like who I am becoming."
[quote]Today is Greek Christmas. I am cancer-free, VOTN got into an accredited medical school, and Matt Dallas finally came out...
Awww, the DL version of Scout Finch.
R69 He hasn't dated me...I think
Ummm...Neil Patrick Harris, r76. His show is still on 6 years later.
[quote]Ummm...Neil Patrick Harris, [R76]. His show is still on 6 years later.
Ummmmm, how do you know who I am?
Love when he smiles in pictures or back when the Kyle XY show was still running.
I wonder if his coming out was part of a pact he made with his boyfriend (when he isn't A-list aka. actor in demand by the end of 2012 he'll come out)?
I wonder also if he had to pay Perez Hilton to get him off his back when Perez was after him?
R89... Since when has the show become NHPs? Oh yeah, that's right, he's just a supporting character.
Oh bullshit, r92. It's an ensemble and he plays by far the most popular character.
Too bad Matt has a small dick.
Lol r89 I was going to say the same Neil Patrick Harris ,Matt Bomer ?
As for Jonathan Bennett maybe he hasn't done anything since Mean Girls but Lindsay Lohan has done everyone since then and what's her status.
At least he is hot I would take him.
Matt Dallas congrats :)
That could be Blue's penis. He's wearing the same black bracelet in his music video.
that makes sense R96. Since he wasn't publicly out then, he couldn't very well say, hey that's not my penis because everyone would wonder why he was keeping photos of other guys.
Blue's music is surprisingly good. Better than some Pitchfork championed "indie sensations" I hear on Soundcloud. Hopefully his stuff gets more recognition.
Since the Twitter engagement announcement at the beginning of the year, I haven't seen any interviews from Matt.
Now that he's promoting the ABC Family show he's going to be in, he's making the rounds. Eonline got him to talk about the wedding plans.
justtttt a question, K? But why do so many gay guy couples physically resemble each other?
Some online program that I’ve never heard of (Maria Menounos produces it?) has a new interview with Matt. It’s long and the girl asking questions can be annoying, but he does talk about being engaged at around the 35 minute mark.
Although he doesn’t avoid the topic, he really doesn’t seem to want to talk about it much though. It basically sounds like he didn’t feel like it was important to have a ‘coming out’ PR celebration, but when he got engaged he wanted to be able to share a significant event in his life.
He talks a lot about how he got started and what projects he’s worked on in his career and that’s the majority of the interview. He talks about how he tried to play sports as a kid, because that’s what his family and all the kids he knew did, but that his grandmother eventually realized that he was more of a stage kid and she encouraged him to follow that path.
He seems less "queeny" than he appeared when he was on Kathy Griffin’s Life on the D-List. But he does mention how he was a waiter for a while – like when he was on her show.
And he unfortunately avoids the topic of how much cock he had to suck to get some breaks in Hollywood.
