Tom Daley Takes One For The Team, Lets Loose With Kylie Minogue

The Commonwealth Games got off to a gay ole start when John Barrowman planted a wet one on a cute male dancer during the opening ceremony.

Not to be outdone, Kylie Minogue was on hand for the closing ceremony this morning, treating a live crowd of 45,000 to a flamboyant show featuring Vegas-esque showgirl headpieces. Because sports.

And there was plenty to celebrate, like “sexiest man alive” (still debatable) Tom Daley nabbing a gold medal.

Tom’s iPhone was naturally close at hand ready to Instagram it all:

Meanwhile, Americans are still trying to figure out what the Commonwealth games are, exactly.

      It’s interesting how Queerty ignored this news until they finally could trans it up even a bit. Out successful gay athletes must be so threatening to the trans bunch which rules this place.

      What? They covered the opening ceremony with John Barrowman’s big gay kiss and the covered the closing ceremony with Kylie Minogue’s performance (who is not and never has been transgender. Your point, litper, makes no sense. The didn’t cover the Commonwealth Games because Queerty is not a sports site. It is an entertainment and gay political news site.

      The Commonwealth is basically a club of nations who used to be territories of the British Empire. In a spirit of friendship and shared history, the old British Empire Games became the Commonwealth Games.

      I can understand some saying there might be a little too much Tom Daley in evidence but let us be fair and admit young Tom is a durable mega-star and something of a role model for very many young men who may have some difficulty living their sexuality. The first thing Tom does is snag himself a Hollywood A-lister and they appear all monogamous, together, – not a bad start in the romance stakes, I suggest. Heaven help us, Tom is handsome and has an ultra desirable body, whatever you say, so don’t let us become all anti-Tom, please. He does a good job and as a gay Brit I am proud of him.

      I don’t understand why everyone falls all over Daley. I like twinks, especially athletic twinks, but not him. He looks like a chipmunk to me. I don’t get it. There are at least 25 boys his age at my gym that i’d choose over him.

      Not sure what it is about his face, but something is off. Kind of like he hasn’t hit puberty or finished developing. Guess thats why he appeals to teenage girls and teenage gay boys, which are the only people who should find him attractive.

      Have the people who read this column all gone bat shyt crazy? Tom Daly is a nice enough fellow but for goodness’s sakes..he does not have the face of Jan Michael Vincent at his apex, nor has he got Cristiano Ronaldo’s fall to the ground body, nor Al Corley’s great lips and pouty expression. I wouldn’t cross the street for Tom Daly but Vito Cammisano….oh baby and he has more than one note samba look. BTW Dustin Lance Black’s ass is better than Tom’s and has more carefully driven miles.

It’s OK, you just keep telling yourself all of those hot boys are superficial when you go home to your little kitties. When your sphincter is dry and hasn’t been touched since Dorothy got her ruby reds, just reach for a dollop of Boy Butter and get your Mr. Fixit out of the night table drawer, close your eyes, turn it up on HIGH and scream out, what a personality you have!!!!!!!!!!!! Oh such accomplishments!!!!! Then get a towel, wipe up, roll over and go to sleep. Nobody will know that you have the best lover in town. We’ll all keep your secret. :-)

      @Zodinsbrother: There’s a bit more to it. The countries have to still share a symbolic bond with Britain, i.e. Canada, which has the Queen on its currency. On the other hand, the US, although a former British colony, has never participated. If I’m not mistaken, Hong Kong used to participate as a British territory, but has not done so since returning to China. Also note that not all Commonwealth nations were British territories. The link can be indirect. For example, Samoa is a member through New Zealand, and Namibia through South Africa. This year’s games had more than 70 participating nations, making it the second largest athletic event after the Olympics.

      @erikwm: None of your desirable twinks, however, have global recognition and influence. Daley came out when he was/is at the top of his game, risking endorsements and inviting distractions. Are you saying that someone with so much clout among the mainstream should be ignored? He is, after all, still a national hero in Britain.

      I wasn’t aware that there are rules and guidelines on what we can fund attractive. That sounds alarmingly like homophobes who claim that same-sex attraction is abnormal or a mental illness. Even law enforcement never says that pedophiles can’t find children attractive. They merely say that adults can’t act on those impulses.

      @stanhope: Try reading carefully. @Billy Budd wrote, “Accomplishments, personality and talent ALSO count. Not ONLY looks.” In case you’re confused, “also” means, “in addition to.” Unlike you, we don’t consider looks to be MUTUALLY EXCLUSIVE to “accomplishments, personality and talent” — or the ability to cook. We live in the real world, where people can have all of the above. It sounds like you’re living in the 50’s where people fit neatly (or are forced into) discrete categories. Or perhaps a Disney cartoon. Sad.

      But to claim he’s not exceptional is delusional, and truly, as you pointed out, is only claimed by the dregs of our community.

      I’m glad we get lots of Tom Daley articles, Tom is gorgeous with a beautiful body and also extremely accomplished, at age 20 he already has an Olympic medal… and as an out gay man he serves a great role model for gay youth.

      All the bitter tired old queens who bitch every time there is a Tom Daley article just need to give it a rest already, nobody forces you to click on these articles. I have Tom’s 2014 calendar hanging on my bedroom wall to remind me of him every time I wake up. If the whiny haters on Tom here don’t like him they can hang up a calendar of hairy old men if that’s your thing…different strokes for different folks…

And you should be ashamed of yourself for implying pedophilia about me or anyone else who thinks Tom is sexy and awesome.

      Tom is not a “young teen boy”. A 13-year-old is a “young teen boy”. Tom Daley is a 20-year-old adult. And a damn fine-looking adult at that. That’s why I have a calendar with a different pic of Tom for every month, I prefer the shirtless pics but he is sexy fully clothed too.

      I’m not into hairy, wrinkly old men, like most of Queerty commentators seem to be into. If that’s what you are into fine, but I’m tired of all the bashing of young smooth twinkish looking guys whenever there is an article about someone fitting that description- and I’m especially tired of the vitriol you people have for Tom Daley, who accomplished more by age 18 than the nasty bitter old queens on here have accomplished or will ever accomplish in their many decades upon the earth.

      There are plenty of people out there who think gay men are not “real men”, so it’s disappointing to read this kind of silliness- denigrating the manliness of a MAN you just happen to dislike- on a site like this.
