The Olympian explained how his generation is more 'fluid' than previous ones.

In a recent interview with The Times, father-to-be Tom Daley clarified his sexual identity, saying:

"The word a lot of people are using now is queer, instead of labelling yourself as lesbian, gay or transsexual. Queer is, like, a better word," he explained, continuing: "it doesn't define you, it's questioning."

Daley has been married to Dustin Lance Black since last year--he came out as gay in 2013. The 23-year-old announced the couple were expecting a kid via surrogate on Valentine's Day.

"People say, 'You like boys,' but I've liked girls too. My generation shouldn't feel the need to be labelled; we are too obsessed by gender," he said, elaborating: "I am not 100 percent straight, I'm not 100 percent gay, I'm just queer. My generation, I think, are more fluid."
