Just because everyone, myself included, is insatiably curious about Tom Daley’s whereabouts these days, please observe the outfit he modeled while celebrating Christmas at home with his family in England this week.
It looks like his fam couldn’t be more supportive of his recent coming-out, with his auntie Marie tying a rainbow ribbon around one of his Christmas gifts, someone giving him a pair of rainbow toe socks (gross), and taking things one step further with this apron that says ‘Gay Icon’ on it, which in Tom’s case is actually not ironic.
When you’re a gay teen who’s recently out and proud, you kind of have to go all out with the Pride gear and rainbow ring necklaces and “I Can’t Even Think Straight” T-shirts. Kudos to the Daleys for embracing the rainbow tackiness with open arms, and even encouraging it.
And apparently those horrible toe socks were a big seller this year, because Tom’s new boyfriend Dustin Lance Black got some for Christmas too, from his mom. (Black spent his Christmas in Utah with his family, doing at least one radio appearance to talk about the surprise gay-marriage ruling there.)
