Well there will be a lot of gay boys with hearts fluttering and loins stirring around the world tonight. No doubt all the gay blogs will be in meltdown now that Tom Daley has announced in a sweet home video that he is in a relationship with a guy. Sure he says that he still fancies girls but that right now he’s happy, happier than he’s ever been, in a relationship with a man. He never uses the word gay in the whole 5+ minute video and I kind of respect him for that. We are all way too fast to try and label people. What if he says he’s gay then ends up one day in a relationship with a woman? It’s no ones business but Tom’s.

It’s great that he took control of a situation where gossip and rumour was increasing and nipped it in the bud on his own terms. As he says, a magazine article would have probably twisted his words anyway. Congratulations Tom. You handled yourself with class.
