The man that has made Olympic diver Tom Daley happy and responsible for him announcing his bisexuality is Oscar winning screenwriter and gay activist Dustin Lance Black. E! Online reported the news on December 3, as the two are sure to be Hollywood’s next hot couple.

The 19-year-old Daley announced via YouTube that he was dating a man and described it as something unexpected but something that has changed his life in a positive way. The news drew support from celebrities and athletes who admired Daley’s courage and acknowledged the importance of coming out publicly. The only questioned that remained was who was this lucky guy making Daley so giddy?

Dustin Lance Black is the answer and the two were actually spotted together back in October. The 39-year-old Black is a bit older than Daley but age is just a number and the two are happy as Daley. In his YouTube video, Daley describes the relationship:

“In spring this year my life changed massively when I met someone and they made me feel so happy, so safe and everything feels great.”

Life will definitely change for Tom Daley and as he has set his goal on winning an Olympic gold medal, it will be important that he focus on his diving while dealing with the public spotlight. Black, who won an Academy Award for his screenplay for “Milk”, may just be the perfect guy to offer Daley that safety because he knows first hand the road Daley will have to travel now that he has come out.
