British Olympic bronze medallist Tom Daley made a very bold decision today when he decided to reveal via video that he was dating a man.
The 19-year-old diver took to YouTube and talked about why he decided to reveal the big secret even though some of his family members were against the idea. Daley claims to still like girls but makes it clear that he’s happier than he’s ever been and that it feels right.
