Tom Daley Comes Out As Gay

Previously, Daley, 19, declined to give himself a label. When he came out in a YouTube video, he’d simply come out as in a relationship with a guy, but also noted, “Of course, I still fancy girls.” Eventually it came out that the guy he was dating was the Oscar-winning screenwriter of Milk, Dustin Lance Black, 39.

Now that he’s been openly dating Black for several months, Daley confirmed, “I am a gay man now,” while on Keith Lemon’s Celebrity Juice.

"I came out on YouTube as I wanted to say what I wanted to say without anyone twisting it,” Daley further explained. “I told my family before I told the world. I was terrified. I did not know what the reaction was going to be. I did it on YouTube because people were constantly digging and asking questions."

As for Daley’s relationship with Black, the Olympic swimmer and TV host said it’s “All good.”
