Tom Daley on coming out as gay: 'I don't think it should be news'
"I think we live in a society that is far more accepting than it was five or ten years ago, but we've still got a way to go," Daley told Attitude magazine
He later clarified that he was gay, and that he had never been happier. Needless to say, for weeks on end, the tabloids couldn’t get enough of Daley’s quotes, and wild speculation over who said boyfriend actually was ensued.
But the Olympic diver has said that he didn’t think his coming out – or anyone else’s – should make the headlines.
“I don't think it should be news,” he told Attitude magazine. “I don't think it matters who you choose to be in a relationship with.
“But I also understand that it is still news. I think we live in a society that is far more accepting than it was five or ten years ago, but we've still got a way to go before people no longer assume you're in a heterosexual relationship.”
“Family is something that has always been really important to me and yes, at some point I would love to marry and have kids,” he added.
