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.

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.

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.

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.

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 Anonymous||reply 94||09/11/2013|
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.

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.

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.

r212 I disagree that Jaimi couldn't avoid it. He's not a bigger flamer than most band boys (even the straight ones) or any other celebs and could easily "pass" as straight. 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.

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.

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.

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.

To be fair, the World Aquatic Championships in 2015 are in fact in Kazan, Russia.
But with all the attention on Russia there's no way Tom would be in danger there unless he tried to hook up there or protested there.
It's gay Russians we should be worried about, but of course those threads have dropped off of DL, surprise surprise, But by all means let's use the suffering of gay Russians instead to legitimize the closet for a 20 year old growing up in a country that allows same-sex marriage and will protect him as he dives for a gold medal.

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.

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 Anonymous||reply 302||12/02/2013|

|by Anonymous||reply 303||12/02/2013|
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.

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

|by Anonymous||reply 306||12/02/2013|
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.

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.

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.
