LONDON, ENGLAND - FEBRUARY 20: Tom Daley attends the Brit Awards 2013 at the 02 Arena on February 20, 2013 in London, England.
After first opening up about his attraction to men on YouTube in December, Olympic athlete
Tom Daley has come out as gay.

Appearing on the U.K.’s “Celebrity Juice,” he told host Keith Lemon, “I am a gay man now.”

Daley spoke about coming as bisexual late last year in a video late last year, when he said, “Of course I still fancy girls.”

“I came out on YouTube as I wanted to say what I wanted to say without anyone twisting it,” he said (via “Metro”).  “I told my family before I told the world. I was terrified. I did not know what the reaction was going to be.”

Daley is in a relationship with Dustin Lance Black, the Oscar-winning screenwriter behind “Milk.” The pair confirmed they were an item in January, later revealing that they had been together since before Christmas.
