Splash OUT...

YES OMG! Tom Daley, the 19-year-old diving star who won bronze for Team GB at the London 2012 Olympics, revealed in an emotional YouTube video today saying, "I still fancy girls, but right now I'm dating a guy and I couldn't be happier. I feel safe and it really does feel right."


Hmm, I've always known that this day would come, just not when. But I'm glad it did and I'm so so happy and PROUD for him!

Honestly, it takes a hell lot of courage to come out to friends and family! And to come out to this very judgmental world under the limelight is even harder! So best of wishes to you and your other 'guy' half! Good on you Tom x

Good Gracious‼
He may not be aware of it, but famous & acclaimed celebrities coming out like that are a HUUUUGE step for the ‘cause’ (?); not twenty years ago, you couldn't have dreamed to see a model for the youth making such public statement, what with the sponsors & all… I'm sure it will help many a faltering fellow in understanding they're not trash, in approaching their friends & family and said friends & family in being supportive b^^
*SIGH* I'm feeling soooo good right now.
