Tom Daley & Dustin Lance Black Make First Red Carpet Appearance Together
By Les Fabian Brathwaite
Though news of Tom Daley and Dustin Lance Black’s courtship have been circulating for months, as with all Hollywood romances, it’s not official till it hits the red carpet. The Olympic diver and Oscar-winning screenwriter apparently raided each other’s closets before making their way over to the Inaugural Battersea Power Station annual party in London Wednesday night.
Dressed similarly in leather and denim, the pair must have had fellow attendees Elton John, Chris Evans, Jeremy Renner, Game of Thrones hottie Kit Harrington, and legendary lady of the night Grace Jones seeing double.
According to The Daily Mail, the power couple has been seen out and about town, including Stratford where Daley is said to be training.
The 19-year-old came out via YouTube in December, additionally revealing that he was dating a mystery man. After much speculation and social media hearsay, Daley and DLB shared a photo of themselves enjoying a candlelit dinner after a taping of Daley’s UK reality show, Splash!
Last month, Daley made a splash of his own when he proclaimed, “I’m a gay man now,” during an appearance on Kevin Lemon’s Celebrity Juice. Black, who was disinvited to be the commencement speaker at his college, has since been re-invited to speak, according to Pasadena-Star News. No word yet as to whether Black will accept the invite.
