In a ideal world, like he noted, there would be no reason to give this a second though. However, the world we live in is anything but that. Given the amount of attention paid, by the rest of the world, to the affairs of his life and the vast changes that have occurred in the past few years of his life. I think it is truly commendable and honorable that he opened up to the public about his relationship. Tom Daley is bisexual and serves as a role model for the rest of the LGTBQ community and for all those thinking of coming out. I tip my hat to Tom Daley.
If you would like you can watch his speech (i suggest you watch the whole thing)
