Happy birthday to one of the handsomest stars in Hollywood, Matt Bomer!

The "White Collar" star turns 36 today. He's one of the few openly gay leading actors on TV, others being Jim Parsons ("The Big Bang Theory"), Sean Hayes ("Sean Saves The World"), John Barrowman ("Torchwood") and Sarah Paulson ("American Horror Story").

Matt's birthday also falls on National Coming Out Day.

October 11th was chosen as it marks the anniversary of the 1987 National March on Washington D.C. for Lesbian and Gay Rights.

2013 has been a banner year for gay rights, with the Supreme Court striking down the Defense of Marriage Act (which defines marriage as a union between one man and one woman) as unconstitutional.
