Bisexual Tom Daley Inspires Nation To Go Searching For 120 Gay Footballers

TOM Daley is gay. You might have read the news that Olympic diver Tom Daley is gay on the front pages of the national Press, or heard it on the national news bulletins.

Daley made his announcement because the caring  Sun was about to out him as being a hypocrite or in denial, or whatever a 19-year-old can be when he’s growing up.

In September, having been voted Attitude magazine’s most shaggable gay man, Daley was invited to comment:

“I think it’s funny when people say I’m gay… I laugh it off.  I’m not. But even if I was, I wouldn’t be ashamed. It wouldn’t bother me in the slightest what people thought.

Gary Lineker said he hoped Daley had “encouraged” gay footballers to come out.

Pink News announced: “Tom Daley comes out as gay.”

The Indy hailed him as a hero. ‘Tom Gayley’ was an “inspiration”, inspiring us to,well, what? Shave our chests and swim more? Be gay? Fancy girls? Make a YouTube video to clear up being misquoted in the Press?

The Indy seems to think the country is trapped in the 1970s, when gays were ‘poofs’, lesbians wore ‘sensible shoes’ and ‘confirmed bachelors’ made it to Parliament.  Being gay is no longer a big deal to the country at large. Tom
