Specifically, in relation to Tom Daley coming out as bisexual, and half the media calling him “gay” or urging us “not to label” him.
British Diver Tom Daley Comes Out as Bisexual
in a 5-minute video posted to his YouTube account today in which he says that some of the past statements he has made denying he is gay bothered him, so he wanted to speak out and feels it’s time:
"Come spring this year my life changed massively when I met someone and they made me feel so happy, so safe, and everything just feels great - and well that someone is a guy. And it did take me by surprise a little bit. It was always in the back of my head that something like that could happen but it wasnt until the spring of this year that it clicked, felt right. Like I said, my whole world just changed, right there and then. And of course I still fancy girls but right now I’m dating a guy, and I just feel safe, and it really does just feel right. Is it a big deal? I don’t think so."
