QUEER VOICES

Tom Daley And Dustin Lance Black Pick Adorably Old-Fashioned Way To Announce Engagement

Too cute.

Tom Daley and Dustin Lance Black decided to go old-school when announcing their engagement. 

Instead of an Instagram post or Snapchat story, the couple took out a £200 ad in the Sunday Times to share the good news: "The engagement is announced between Tom, son of Robert and Debra Daley of Plymouth, and Lance, son of Jeff Bisch of Philadelphia and Anne Bisch of Lake Providence."

Daley's mom spoke to the Plymouth Herald about the upcoming nuptials

"The whole family is extremely excited and looking forward to the big day," she said. "They are going to wait until after the [2016] Olympic Games in Rio before they decide on the date of the wedding and where they want to marry." 

The 21-year-old diver came out in a candid YouTube video in December 2013, telling the world about his relationship with another man.

"Come spring this year, my life changed massively when I met someone and it made me feel so happy, so safe and everything just feels great. And that someone is a guy," he said. "It was always in the back of my head that something like that could happen, but it wasn’t until spring this year that something just clicked ... My whole world just changed, right there and then." 

Later that month, he was romantically linked to the 41-year-old Oscar-winner.
