Olympian Tom Daley—19 years old—came out today as bisexual in a heartfelt video revealing that he's currently in a relationship with a man.
As reported by USA Today:
In the frank, five-minute clip, which racked up more than a half-million views in its first few hours online, Daley said “I still fancy girls” but revealed that he’s recently started dating a man.
“Come spring, this year, my life changed. Massively. When I met someone and it made me feel so happy, so safe and everything just feels great. 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 it could happen, but it wasn’t until the spring of this year that something clicked. It felt right. Like I said, my whole world just changed right there and then.”
Daley said he opted to use YouTube as his forum because he wanted his words to come out clearly.
