  • Tom Daley About to Get Hitched to Dustin Lance Black

Tom Daley is about to get hitched to Dustin Lance Black. The British Olympic diver came out of the closet two years ago and now he is about to make the biggest decision of his life.

He just shouted it out from the rooftops. That is regarding his engagement to partner and film director Dustin Lance Black. Tom Daley, the Plymouth native who is an Olympian, mentioned the fact in the Births, Nuptials and Obituaries section of the newspaper.

In a YouTube video he made two years ago, Tom Daley let it be known that he had a boyfriend. However, he never really said who it was in the first place. He later on admitted to how difficult the decision was for him to come clean about his gay life. 

Dustin Lance Black, a US film director, was the lucky man. He is also an author and a consummate producer. The prolific man received an Oscar for his film titled Milk. It was about Harvey Milk, a gay rights advocate and government official.

Dustin had always felt that he was different from other children since he was attracted to boys. But he feared telling anyone since he would be condemned and ostracized. He grew up in a Mormon community in Texas and kept his secret hidden well.   

While accepting his Oscar statuette, Dustin spoke of how making the movie was an object lesson in his own journey to self-recognition. He had always supported, identified with and felt a soft spot in his heart for gays and lesbians.

He furthermore said that he had always dreamt of being free of the constraints that had held him back all his life. His mother got special mention for her constant presence in his life as an anchor and mentor. Where would he have been without her?! 

During the swelteringly hot month of May, Daley and Black started living together. Then Tom Daley said that his life was not the same anymore since he was deep in love with a man. Both of them were so infatuated with each other that they couldn’t wait to tie the knot, according to BBC.

Now the whole world knows about it. And it will come to pass that these two gentlemen, who are famous in their own right. will be entering the relationship that is matrimony.

It might seem a bit odd to the conservative and traditional segments of society, but to the liberal and postmodern crowd who represent today’s Zeitgeist, it is just another example of free expression by a human being for another human being.
