DusTom, Tomstin, or DaBlack?

Just Jared has published the first photos showing Tom Daley and Dustin Lance Black together after Tom Daley's YouTube video bombshell. The pictures were taken when they were leaving the diving center of the University of Houston Texas. Neither of them has confirmed if they are in a relationship, but pictures talk, too.


Tom Daley and Dustin Lance Black



Tom Daley posted a video on YouTube on Monday 2 December 2013 to tell his fans that he is in a relationship with a man. All hell broke loose. The Queen could have abdicated that day and no one would have noticed until Wednesday. While exposed to some vile abuse (the usual closet gays in denial crowd plus teenagers with an overdose of hormones), most messages were posted and sent to support his decision. Note on the side: Tom Daley has not come out as either gay or bisexual, just as a man in a relationship with a man.

Obviously, once this was out, the hunt for the mystery man was on. The lenses soon zoomed in on Dustin Lance Black. Proof for this theory remained slim and neither Tom Daley nor Dustin Lance Black commented. The waiting game began. In the following interview on the Jonathan Ross Show, Tom Daley wasn't forthcoming with any further information in that direction. The detective work was left to the paparazzi.

Now Just Jared has published the first pictures showing the two of them together since that video was posted on YouTube. Please, follow this link if you want to see them all. There still is no confirmation from the parties concerned, but the pictures show familiarity. Once Dustin Lance Black's name had been linked to Tom Daley's, the ageism specialists went to work immediately. Tom Daley was born in 1994, Dustin Lance Black in 1974. So what? Even twins have an age gap, get used to it.

Who is Dustin Lance Black (for people not from Sacramento)? The son of a Mormon missionary had his coming out in his college years. He is an activist for LGBT rights in the United States and a successful screenwriter with one Oscar to his name. He is also directing and producing for television and the big screen. But his original script for Milk was by far his most outstanding success with a long list of awards and nominations to his name.

Who is Tom Daley (for people not from Portsmouth)? He is the most successful British diver ever. In 2008, he became the youngest European Champion in diving in history and came to the wider public's attention at the Olympics in Beijing. In 2009, he won the World Championship from the 10 m board. At the 2012 London Olympics he won a bronze medal. In 2012, he aired with his own television show Splash! which will go into its second round starting 4 January 2014.
