Mat Bomer loves his gay superhero character


American actor Matt Bomer has opened up about playing one of the first LGBT+ superheroes on TV in DC’s Doom Patrol. The actor, who is gay himself, revealed that that before playing Larry Trainor—also known as Negative Man—he diesperately wanted to see a gay man as a superhero when he was a cghild and later, but there hardly was any. Since joining the DC Universe show, the American Horror Story star said he had grown to appreciate that Negative Man’s plot lines were much wider and deeper than just same-sex love stories – he is not just gay, he is a personality, whose sexuality does not define him in a stereotypical way, it is just a part of who he is . Two episodes of Doom Patrol have aired on DC’s streaming service so far, exploring why Bomer’s character had to leave behind his life as a married, closeted pilot who had a secret gay lover.
