Actor Matt Bomer and his partner, Hollywood publicist Simon Halls, are to be honored in October for their support of LGBT youth.

Bomer, star of USA Network's White Collar and a co-star of the male stripper film Magic Mike, officially came out gay last February when he thanked Halls and their three children for their love and continued support in accepting an award for his HIV/AIDS advocacy in Palm Springs.

The couple will be honored by The Gay, Lesbian & Straight Education Network (GLSEN) at the group's eighth annual Respect Awards in Beverly Hills, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

“Both Matt and I are incredibly impressed by the great work that GLSEN does for kids who might normally not have somewhere to turn,” Halls said. “Even in this day and age, LGBT kids still need all the support that we can give them. We are both very humbled to be receiving this honor.”
