The White Collar star, who came out during an acceptance speech earlier this year, revealed that he never tried to hide his sexual orientation.
"I never really endeavored to hide anything," Bomer told E! Online.
"But there were times I chose not to relegate my history to the back page of a magazine, which to me is sort of akin to putting your biography on a bathroom wall," he said.
Bomer went on to say that he thinks people need to stop thinking of each other in terms of adjectives.
"What we really have to do is stop the adjective before the job title - whether it's 'black actor,' a 'gay actor' or 'anything actor'," he explained.
"Everybody thinks that equality comes from identifying people, and that's not where equality comes from," Bomer continued. "Equality comes from treating everybody the same regardless of who they are. I hope the media and the press catches on to that because it's time to move out of 1992."
The 34-year-old can next be seen in the stripper movie Magic Mike opposite Channing Tatum, Alex Pettyfer and Joe Manganiello.
