The Olympic diver is reported dating the 39-year-old writer, who won an Academy Award for penning 2008's movie 'Milk'.
Tom Daley's boyfriend may have been revealed. A day after the British Olympic diver revealed he had been in a relationship with a man, report comes out that the man he's dating is American screenwriter Dustin Lance Black.
Daley and Black were spotted going out together in Hollywood last October, but at that time no one suspected that they were having a romantic relationship. Now sources confirm to E! News that the two are indeed a pair.
Black, who is 20 years older than 19-year-old Daley, is an LGBT rights activist. He won a WGA Award and an Academy Award for writing Gus Van Sant's "Milk", a 2008 biopic about gay rights activist legend Harvey Milk.
Daley came out as dating a man by posting a YouTube video on Monday, December 2. He said, "Of course I still fancy girls but right now I'm dating a guy and I couldn't be happier," adding, "I wanted to put an end to all the rumours and speculation, and just say it and tell you guys. It's what I want to do."
He did not reveal the identity of his boyfriend though. On Tuesday, he posted on his Facebook, "I'd just like to say a massive thanks for all the support yesterday...it truly was overwhelming xx."
