Matthew Mitcham Says He Was As Surprised As Everyone When Tom Daley Came Out

19th Commonwealth Games - Day 10: DivingI was as surprised as everyone else. I’d even had dinner with him a month before it happened and I never knew anything. I totally understand with how young he is and, growing up in the public eye, it would’ve been extremely hard. I felt very fortunate that I didn’t get famous until after I had well and truly established my sexual identity, whereas he’s been in the spotlight since he was 13. It’s a really hard position to be in so I totally commend and support how he did it and when he did it.”

— Matthew Mitcham, who previously chatted about Tom Daley’s butt, discussing his own career and his diving pal in an interview with CNN

      And Mitchem coming out earlier no doubt helped with Delay’s comfort level so bravo to both of them.
