No I think he has a girlfriend.
That doesn't disprove anything though, not in showbizland


Ive always thought he was, could be wrong mind.

I think the bigger question is
is Tom Dayley going to be known for being a good diver (that wins important things)
or just a pretty face and many twitter followers and basically a sportsperson the Admen love.

I think he's already proved he's a good diver, 3x British Champion, 2x European Champion, World Champion at just aged 15 and 5 Golds in FINA World Championships don't come to anyone who isn't a good diver. The fact he's already competed in two Olympics at only 18 is brilliant too and divers are usually at their peak aged 20-22 so I think RIO 2016 could be a really good year for him in terms of winning an Olympic medal.

In response to OP he has said he's not so that's enough proof to me that he's not gay.

Pretty much agree with everything you say Daniellejayne

It's sad, because I really do think he is! If he's denying it now, he wont come out until he's retired from diving probably.

Why do you think that, when the sport has Mathew Mitcham as a role model?

Well, not everyone is Matthew Mitcham?

Tom Daley has a major TV role and sponsorships, and the very fact he's saying it in the Mirror of all places is a bit bizarre, since he really doesn't even need to discuss it and his PR rep would have said not to if he wanted that question kept out. He's also really young.

I have no bias on Tom Daley's sexuality, he may be one of those extremely camp straight men that planet Earth turns out now and then. But he also has plenty of reasons to hide it if he is in such a public role. People have denied it before only to do an about-face later.

So idk. This is inconclusive for me. As long as he's happy and diving to his best, that's the main thing. He's a sportsman, I don't care who he fancies or sleeps with. I do think it's sad if he feels the need to lie.

Interesting he used 'gender neutral' pronouns in his answers at the end though.

Oh FFS. Do you live inside Tom Daley's head? Do you know his wants and desires? You cannot say someone is Gay because you "think" he is.

I think so too. It reminds me of when Joe Mcelderry denied being gay. But he of course did come out after that.

Things are different now though. It's not going to look too good if you deny it then come out later.

When i was 19 i was sure i was straight... i had a girlfriend for two years....

At 21, i randomly met a guy called Wayne at a burger van and fell in love (you couldn't make it up/sounds like a bad country song) and now at 32 i am in a long term relationship with a man (not Wayne).

The point is... at 19, he may think he is straight, he may well be but i thought i was straight at 19 too (looking back i now know i certainly wasn't straight at 19 either)

The point is that there is not one person who can say for 100% certainty that Tom Daley is gay. The posters who state they know for sure he is must be superhuman.

Feel a bit sorry for Tom with all this speculation

Feels like we're rifling through his private things (oooer)

Well yes, maybe i badly worded my post. I was trying to say that.... no one knows except him and even he may not know.

I'm 19 and gay, I think a lot of posters on here forget his age. I don't think I would be ready to announce my sexuality in public like that, everyone would know and it takes a certain maturity to not be phased by that.

Is tom gay? Only he knows, and he may not even know himself!
Though he sure knows how to tease his `gay fans` exhibit A: http://www.queerty.com/photos-olympi...6/tom-daley-2/

I'm surprised if Stephen Fry hasn't called him yet. He seems to go for the hairless pink barely pubescent type - much like his 'beloved Oscar'. That boy that he set his sights on when he was playing Christopher Robin in the audiobook of Winnie the Pooh he was narrating must be getting a bit long in the tooth for Fry's tastes by now.
