Tom Daley’s boyfriend addresses his leaked sex pics
UK diver Tom Daley’s screenwriter boyfriend Dustin Lance Black has admitted his relief in finally discussing photos which were leaked of him engaging in a sex act.
The photos from Black’s past were leaked earlier this month and showed the Milk screenwriter having sex with an ex-boyfriend.
At the time of the leak, Black wrote an open letter acknowledging the photos of him from 2009 stating that he “refused to be shamed."
Out on the red carpet with boyfriend Tom Daley for the first time at an annual party at Battersea Power Station, Black spoke with Digital Spy about the leak saying,
“If you invade my privacy, this is what you will find.
"I have sex. It brings me joy, fosters intimacy and helps love grow.
“I am the victim of this ‘scandal’, not the perpetrator.
"People have been so incredibly supportive.It was about time [I addressed the picture leak]. I always just sort of think it'll disappear, but it came up again.
“Cleve Jones, who’s in Milk, is like a mentor to me, and he said, ‘Girl, you need just to say it and let people know what’s up’, so I went ahead and did that. It was good to finally get it done.”
Tom Daley published a YouTube video late year which revealed that he was in a relationship with a man who he later confirmed was Black.
