MEN OF DISTINCTION: TOM DALEY

Tom Daley Gay

In a move that is sure to excite gay men across the globe, handsome and nimble English Olympic diver Tom Daley released a video today on his Youtube channel revealing that he is in a relationship with a man, finally putting to bed the rumours about his sexuality. Although not officially coming out as gay, Daley explains in a candid and honest video the reasons why he has been so reluctant to discuss his relationships in the past. As a 19 year old sportsman, with a huge legion of fans and a public profile, Tom should be commended on his brave and inspiring actions.

No word yet on who Tom Daley’s boyfriend/lover/gay teammate may be but early indications from Facebook reveal that he’s already the most envied gay man on the planet.

MEN OF DISTINCTION: JASON COLLINS

Jason Collins Gay

34 year-old American NBA player, Jason Collins has revealed in an interview with Sports Illustrated that he is gay. Collins is the first active player (he’s played for the Boston Celtics and Washington Wizards)¬†from any of the four major US men’s professional sports leagues to publicly come out of the closet.

“I’m black. And I’m gay. I didn’t set out to be the first openly gay athlete playing in a major American team sport. But since I am, I’m happy to start the conversation,” Collins said.¬†“If I had my way, someone else would have already done this. Nobody has, which is why I’m raising my hand.”

Collins has now become a role model for gay youth not just in America but throughout the world. Hopefully his bravery will be an inspiration for other closeted athletes to publicly come out and show young gay boys that being gay need not affect your life or your career. As I’ve always said, the world needs more positive gay roles models like Jason Collins (read Rule No.2).
