The teenager went on to talk about how life has changed for him since the Olympics, his hard times as a little kid and he also talked about the reactions from his family when he told them that he is gay (in a relationship with a guy).
He said that his family has been “so supportive”, while other has received the message with mixed reactions and that they well shocked.
“Lots of them didn’t believe it,” Daley said.
“Lots of them wanted me to keep it quiet, some said ‘Why don’t you do a statement? Why don’t you do a magazine cover? Why don’t you do a TV interview?”.
“I didn’t want to get my words twisted. I wanted to put an end to all the rumors and speculation, I want to come tell you guys”.
Tom Daley made his announcement via Twitter, posting: “Got something I need to say…not been an easy decision to make, hope you can support me! :)” with the link to the video.
In the clip, while talking about his life, fame and about his dad, Daley talked about privacy – the problem here is if you want a private life, is it a good idea to announced/talk about your relationships and sexuality in this way?
Because what all this will lead to, is the media writing endless article about him and his relationship. I am sure the next step for Gossip magazines and website will be following Tom Daley around, taking pictures and trying to find out who is his partner.
We know is a good idea to ‘come out’. But if you want a private life, is this actually the right way to do it?
OK, maybe Tom don’t want a private relationship.
