Bourne is one of the most-well respected figures on the international dance scene and he's a proud gay man.
He has won numerous awards across his career, including two Tony awards and an Evening Standard award. He was awarded an OBE in 2001 and has now become a ‘Sir’ in recognition of his services to dance. "I never dreamed that I would be honored in such a way," said Matthew. It's such an amazing example how a countrycan respect LGBT people instead of hating them. Long live the Queen!
