Tom Daley, Olympic Diver, Says He's Not Gay

“I think it’s funny when people say I’m gay...I laugh it off...I’m not. But even if I was, I wouldn’t be ashamed. It wouldn’t bother me in the slightest what people thought."

by Anonymousreply 35311/23/2014

I'm fine with that .... whatever.

Funnier is the photo list of 38 other celebs hounded by the gay rumor ...revisit that list in five years, ten years and see how many of those are 'out' by then. I'd say probably at least 5 of them.

There's straight guys that seem gay, gay guys that seem straight, and everything in between - both in terms of their actions and their sexual preferences. As long as he's happy in his own skin, who gives a shit.

I can understand why he may not want to come out if he is gay. He is only around 19, his father died a couple of years ago, and he is the main breadwinner for his mother and brothers.

He is just at the start of his career and after winning the bronze in 2012, he wants to win the gold in 2016. He's probably concerned about sponsorships and t.v. deals, some of which would be lost because it's still an issue for some people if an athlete is gay.

[quote]Chris Mears: ‘I’m trying to steal Tom Daley’s gay fanbase’

British diving Olympian Chris Mears has explained the reasons why he decided to strip off for a gay magazine’s photo shoot.

He wants to steal Tom Daley’s gay fan base.

In an interview with Gay Times, the 19-year-old straight heartthrob joked: ‘I’m trying to steal his gay fan base by doing this shoot for GT!

‘I know people through Tom who are gay and I’m good friends with them.’

As a diver, Mears has to keep his body on display and in tiny trunks so he has quite camp grooming regimes. He also says he’s often propositioned for gay sex on Twitter.

As another poster mentioned, his comments are most likely due to sponsors and endorsements. Maybe he doesn't know how the sponsors actually feel about homosexuality. He has very little power and possibly next to no money without them.

However Tom identifies, I wish him all the best. He's a high-profile British athlete but he's also a kid. He deserves to just have fun and have some privacy.

Wentworth Miller, Lance Bass, Clay Aiken, Ricky Martin. These are all celebrities who at one time or another denied being gay in an interview.

Lance Bass, Zachary Quinto, Neil Patrick Harris, Wentworth Miller, and Mika are just a few of the celebrities that fans were convinced were gay long before they came out. At one time Rosie O'donnell and Ellen were in the closet.

People don't think Tom Daley is gay just because he's cute. There are plenty of cute athletes and celebrities that don't set off the gaydar. Hell, Tom Daley's own teammate Chris Mears posed naked for a gay magazine and he doesn't get very much gay speculation and you can make the case that he's hotter than Tom Daley.

People think Tom Daley is gay because he's most likely gay. Gaydar is actually pretty accurate.

Yeah, a lot of guys don't accept they're gay, or aren't comfortable with it rather, till they're like early 20s.

But I thought the kids of today would be coming out earlier. I'm a little disappointed as I thought Tom would be an early coming out and role model material. But as someone else said, he's still only in his teens and could come out early 20s. I hope he doesn't turn into a joke like Ian Thorpe.

R66 is correct. It's not the case that people want a guy to be gay just because he's cute. The reason there are persistent gay rumors about some guys is because some of them are GAY.

As R66 says, Chris Mears is hotter than Tom Daley and even took his clothes off for a gay magazine and yet not as many people think he is gay, even though a lot of people wish he was.

If he is gay, he's a liar. Kevin Spacey is still in the closet after the same lie. No one is going to buy the "I am/was bisexual so I wasn't lying" evasion.

Wentworth Miller grew up in an era where gay men thought we'd all end up with AIDS and were officially second-class citizens. And yet Greg Louganis had the guts to come out nearly 20 years before Miller and came out as poz.

What's his excuse going to be if he is in fact gay?

“I wish I had time to meet a girl. I thought after the Olympics I would have loads more time but that hasn't been the case.”

This is to all celebrities who have their sexuality speculated about. Never ever ever use the "I'm to busy for a gf/bf" line. Everybody has enough time to date. Even the most Type A work around the clock driven fortune 500 executive has time for a wife and kids. Actors, Actresses, Presidents etc They marry or date all the time. . As Elaine Benes would say. Nobody is buying it so you shouldn't be selling it.

yes, R88, at World's just as at the Olympics he nearly missed the final with a horrible dive and two mediocre ones, then in the final was 2nd at one point and then flopped down again and barely made it into 6rh place.

r86 is absolutely right. I was convinced(and still am) that he was gay. That's what I found interesting about him but if he's straight why would I give a fuck about him. There are plenty of other guys cuter than him to care about.

Gay guys weren't interested in him because he's a diver. That's just straight media stupidity. We figured he was playing the I don't discuss my sexuality game which is acceptable but he's decided to play the closet game which makes him useless quite frankly.

Tom don't come out when you're 30 and nobody gives a damn.

by Anonymousreply 9309/11/2013

Depends how you define a relationship. I think that all most celebrities have time for is a fuck buddy that they see now and again when both are in the same city. (be that m/m, m/f, whatever)

Most probably have open relationships and it's understood that they'll be boinking whoever their current costar is or what have you. Some fans along the way if they're hot enough and seem like they might be somewhat discreet.

But a relationship like most of us working class schlubs think of one? Or like these celebrity's parents probably had and they grew up with? I have no doubt that a real working celebrity has no time for such a thing.

by Anonymousreply 9409/11/2013

Bingo to all of the above.

Chris Mears, who is reportedly straight, is just as cute and courted his gay fans, unlike Daley who is now "laughing" at being thought of as gay and claims to be glad to have adoring gay fans.

If he has PR people, they're not doing him any favours. If he doesn't have PR help, he should get it.

There are always plenty of cute divers in speedos to get interested in. And Matthew Mitcham actually has a gold medal, is out, and despite the former drug problems, is cute with his ukelele.

The more Daley fails to win, why should we be interested in him if he's not gay?

No thanks.

He pings to me, not saying that makes him gay though there are actually a few stright flamers in the UK (google Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen), but there was another male Brit Olympian (Judoka/Boxer, I forget which) on Splash and I thought it seemed pretty obvious Tom fancied him. Just my opinion of course, but I do think that "plenty of gay friends through Tom" comment from Chris Mears was telling.

Oh r141, stop being so sensitive about your precious Tom who claims he's not gay. Especially since he probably has Louis down his throat as I type!

In the link at r132, Smith isn't necessarily saying Tom is small, just that Tom's is not as big as his. Which is likely true because Louis is half Caribbean and probably has a bigger dick than a lot of people.

And Smith also said the same thing you just did, that Tom would sell more calenders than he would. Louis knows that Tom is the ideal twink that you lecherous queens just love, as evidenced by the many replies in this thread.

by Anonymousreply 14509/16/2013

R136 I don't think there was any malice in it. If he's gay, and he might not be, I'd always assumed that if he is it's one of the things everyone who knows him knows but not as part of his public persona. It's taken him a while to actually say he's not, considering the interest gay men have taken in him and the article was quite some time ago. So I think he either meant he knows gay people through Tom because Tom's gay (not really thinking it was a big deal since Tom hadn't denied it in the press himself) or because of all the gay people who have taken an interest in Tom. It's been a while since I read the interview and to be honest most of the pictures in that Gay Times were more interesting than what most of the guys were saying but it came across more as name dropping a more famous friend who he knows people like. I'd assume he usually gets asked about Tom at some point in interviews.

Either way it was an article in the annual naked issue of a gay magazine that even not a lot of gay people read (it's one of the only issues I've ever bought) so nobody is likely to take the comment too seriously and it's not an unambigious "I know Tom Daley and he's gay" anyway.

I'm a woman and he pings to high heaven and back. He's young and wants all the financial and professional opportunities he can possibly get. OTOH this "OMG, I'm so totally not gay" thing annoys me. OTOH, so many gay men have done the same for decades (some still do) and only came out in their 40s, 50s and 60s with nothing to lose and huge bank accounts that I can't totally blame him.

It does however make me respect young people like Jaymi Hensley who's in a boy band and has an incredible voice that could lead to a huge solo career and he still came out. Jaimi has so much more to lose imo than this twink.

Him being engaged means nothing as far as being able to "closet" because the media always cooperates and doesn't out celebs unless they are caught in very compromising situations or are extremely hated.

Jaimi simply chose to "come out" even during the competition itself and deserves huge respect for it and for taking the more difficult way.

I really hope he has a big solo career because he seems like the nicest guy and has an in incredible voice.

R218 you sound confused.

Seems to me that they didn't care if they were seen being kissed and not ashamed of being engaged. That's what it means not to be ashamed of being gay.

The fact that they didn't issue a press release first didn't mean that they needed to do that to get some sort of permission to be seen kissing. People like you are really tedious to set up these timetables for when people have to come out.

They're people who happen to be in a band. Their press is not their private life, and not on any pre-approved plan of when they have to issue that statement to avoid being accused of being forced out.

What they did NOT do as what Tom Daley has done, doing an interview saying they're not gay and laugh at gay people who think so.

You seem to have missed that point.

by Anonymousreply 22010/15/2013

As has been said before, the reason he had "gay fans" is that he did a lot of things gay boys do (stereotypically so).

But saying the equivalent of "I love my gay fans" but "I'll laugh" if you think I'm gay makes him more than a tease. He's saying he does all the posing, dancing with other boys, etc. to show off and let us all adore him but that he felt the need to clarify that everyone should NOT think he's gay.

Whichever publicist set up that interview should have told him he would lose a lot of those gay fans if he is indeed straight.

David Boudia has time for a marriage and win medals. His teammates have girlfriends. He'd have been better off laughing at himself for his lack of a love life and embracing his femininity and exhibitionism and saying it's a stereotype to think that makes anyone gay.

It is possible he's just trying to fend off speculation, isn't ready and is aware countries like Russia where he'll have to perform, are less than keen on gay boys and it could all derail attention away from his diving or tv career.

Anderson Cooper trotted out the same excuse for years as reason to be closeted -- traveling to foreign countries where he might be attacked as an openly gay celebrity.

Did he suddenly give up any idea of going to foreign countries on assignment? No.

He just couldn't keep up the denials anymore -- one hopes because he was in an actual relationship that he wanted to last so he wanted his partner by his side and to stop the angry glances at the photographers. He came out, and he's still a reporter. Just like out gay reporters all over the world who have not let that hold them back in their work.

What seems obvious to YOU might not be to others. He's basically a kid. You're applying levels of sophistication and social awareness to a youngster who's lived a sheltered life and has dealt with much bullying/homophobia as well as a family tragedy that's knocked him back.

R244 the only person who has brought up this excuse and tried to defend it -- three times now -- is you. And now to defend it you're imagining it's what's in his head, throwing in that he likely was bullied as a closeted gay kid to boot.

It reads like you're the one writing from an older fearful generation, not the younger generation who hasn't been damaged by your kind of thinking.

Matt Mitcham is an out diver, and more Olympians than ever have competed as openly gay athletes. Chris Mears and now Jack Laugher have posed for Gay Times. Daley claims he loves his gay fans and seems to be embracing his gay icon status. These are not people who "fear" being associated with gayness when they compete.

And if Tom is concerned about not drawing attention to himself so he can compete without distraction, he'd stop making calendars and videos dancing in his speedos.

Tom's generation has grown up as a generation that has seen far too many people live openly gay in more unprotected situations than diving in a highly guarded competition.

The reason people who are famous who stay in the closet is almost always losing the allure of a straight audience, and if he fantasizes about having people write scripts for him to be in movies, it's his agents and publicists who are probably encouraging him to squelch the gay rumors.

Stop trying to make up excuses based on your own projections and imaginations about what must be going through his head. And keep Jesus out of it as well.

Tom Daley claims he loves his gay fans but what specifically has he ever done for them? He's never done a photo spread in a gay magazine like his two teammates and as far as I know he's never done even done a real interview for a gay magazine.

He did it online. He now says he's bisexual. Still fancies girls, but in a relationship with a guy.

Sorry I doubted, R294. It seems to be legit and be on the BBC.

Wow, it's as surprising as Andrew Scott coming out.

Good for him but boy can forget the bisexual thing.

by Anonymousreply 29812/02/2013

This just goes to shy why the OP's first post post is so important and relevant.

TRANSLATION: Tom LAUGHED at being called gay in the press, saying he'd admit it if he were.

Now he's bisexual, so he can say he wasn't lying.

But I bet he got shit from a lot of people for lying, and especially in this day and age, rightfully so, it got to him.

The sad reality is this is the kind of soul-killing thing that ate away at people and led to self-sabotage and all kinds of bullshit for years.

Now if he only hadn't lied the first time, he wouldn't have had to do the confessional video.

But good for him that he "corrected it" before the lie became too hard to weasel out of.

by Anonymousreply 29912/02/2013

[quote]Good for him but boy can forget the bisexual thing.

Why? Do you think that's just to ease the public into it before saying he is full-on gay?

by Anonymousreply 30012/02/2013

No worries, R297 I was in a hurry to bring the news and it's very clunky to find a link and post with an iPad.

by Anonymousreply 30112/02/2013

Because of his age, I'll give him the benefit of the doubt. When I was his age, I was so horny all the time I could have fucked anybody - and did - including girls. And when you can appreciate a girl, especially athletic tougher girls, it can be confusing in your head.

When you don't want to be different and know you'll be judged, you tell yourself you could be bisexual.

He needs affirmation now.

Of course, I hope he's not dating Dustin Lance Black....

by Anonymousreply 30212/02/2013

R299, I think Tom's diving teammates have probably known for a while. Remember last year when Chris Mears let slip that he had 'met a lot of gay guys through Tom'?

by Anonymousreply 30312/02/2013

R302, it may also be that Tom was worried about the reaction from the public and from his sponsors. His father died a couple years ago and he is the main breadwinner for his mother and younger brothers. Perhaps he was afraid. He is only a teenager, afterall.

by Anonymousreply 30412/02/2013

Agree that Tom needs the support, but look at the way the BBC tweets it... affirming that he "still fancies girls".

Got to keep those girl Daley fans happy....

by Anonymousreply 30512/02/2013

Good for him stay strong Tom!

People everywhere are going to be saying catty things about him but you have to do things in your own time at your pace.

He's probably extreeeeeeeeemly nervous and edgy somewhere in the UK right now - I remember how bizarre I felt when I was figuring things out and telling people, at the same age as him.

by Anonymousreply 30612/02/2013

Don't blame him, R298. Many guys claim they're bi when they first come out. It's safer for them. Give him time. If he's still bisexual in ten years, good for him. Or if he has realized he's fully gay, that's great too. It's his life after all.

I just remember what Lucas Cruikshank said when he came out. He tried being bi for like a 6 months, but then figured out he was fully gay. Many people go through a transition period like that. Everyone can't come out loud and proud as gay right away.

by Anonymousreply 30712/02/2013

Obviously he's gay but he's only 19 so the false bi thing is still forgiveable.

r302, or he could just be bi, like he indicates (actually he doesn't even say that, he says he fancies girls but happens to be in a relationship with a guy at the moment). TBH, if you were so turned on by women that you ended up having sex with them then wouldn't that make you bi as well? Why is everyone so sure this kid isn't bi?

Dan Savage says that Dustin Lance Black better follow the 'campsite rule':

[quote]Campsite rule

coined by dan savage, in relationships with a large age disparity, at the end of the relationship, the elder partner should leave the younger in "better shape than they found them". This includes no diseases, no fertilized eggs, no undue emotional trauma, and whatever education that can be provided.

i wish that my older boyfriend would have observed the campsite rule with me, now i have a broken heart and a monthly prescription for valtrex.

r325, I'm confused by you post. What does whether or not he has had sex yet with a woman (or a man for that matter) have to do with his sexual orientation? I didn't have sex with another man until my early 20s, that doesn't mean I wasn't gay before that, it just means I was a virgin. Whether Tom has had sex with both men/women doesn't make him bi; if he is sexually attracted to both sexes, that makes him bi.

Tom's old beard for old times' sake.

by Anonymousreply 34512/14/2013

I'm with r340.

My personal gut feel is he's probably going to be a fully-fledged gay man in time but he's still young and could be coming out in stages. He's done the hardest part of the PR process and the rest is now up to him.

He may like women, he may not be wholly sure what he is yet... but he has lots of time to find out. He's said he's involved with a guy and they do look very much in love and that's about all we need to know.

by Anonymousreply 34612/14/2013

What incentive is there to clarify his sexuality as gay later on? Zero except making him look bad. I don't see the point and I don't think he ever will even if that is how he feels.

Better for him to just to say he rejects labels and do his thing.
