It’s been a while since the entertainment world has had a major celebrity coming out moment but that all changed yesterday when British Olympic diver Tom Daley came out as bisexual in a YouTube video.
In the video, the 19-year-old diver explains that, although he is attracted to women, he always knew that he held an attraction for men as well. And this year he found a man and fell in love.
“Come spring this year, my life changed massively when I met someone and it made me feel so happy, so safe and everything just feels great. And that someone is a guy,” Daley revealed.
“It was always in the back of my head that something like that could happen, but it wasn’t until spring this year that something just clicked … My whole world just changed, right there and then,” he added.
However, despite his personal confession, Daley still seemed hesitant to give his sexuality a label such as bisexual.
“Of course I still fancy girls,” he says. “But I mean, right now I’m dating a guy and I couldn’t be happier. It makes me feel safe and just really does feel right.”
Whether clearly defined or not, we commend Daley for opening up about his sexuality and we congratulate him on his relationship. Hopefully, his admission will help other bisexual men and women find the comfort and courage in themselves to come out as well.
