It's surely impossible to watch the video and not feel happy for him - he's got that glow of someone who's very happy coming off him and his eyes light up when he talks about his boyfriend.
But isn't it sad he felt he had to make the video in the first place? He says in it that he was misquoted in an article and wanted to set the record straight and tell his fans what he's doing.
But it goes without saying that he wouldn't have felt the need to do so if he was dating a woman. Or if he did, that it wouldn't have received the same level of press and public attention.
Because it's not really any of our business, is it? Someone's love life, their sexuality.
But the reaction has showed something else, besides the fact that any celebrity saying they're not straight will get an insane amount of attention: bisexual erasure is alive and well.
Now let's be very clear. Daley doesn't put any labels on himself. He very clearly says that he is in a relationship with a man that makes him incredibly happy, and that he fancies girls. If there's a word for that, it's bisexual. I hesitate to use that label in relation to Daley because people should be able to define themselves and their sexuality. But for the same reason I would not call him gay. In fact, that seems even less fitting, given he's said he still has attractions to women. But that didn't stop most of the media immediately shouting 'GAY!':
The Mail Online was actually one of the first places to say that Daley had 'come out' as bisexual rather than gay, and their piece is remarkably positive. But the comments are not, shall we say, quite as positive:
And how should we refer to bisexuality? As a valid label for human sexuality. As a way people can choose to define themselves if they're attracted to more than one gender. As something that does actually exist.
Glad I could clear those up.
