Tom Daley’s boyfriend ‘contemplated suicide over own battle to come out as gay’

London, Dec 5: Tom Daley’s boyfriend Dustin Lance Black has confessed that he had even contemplated suicide when he struggled to come out as gay.

The 39-year-old screenwriter had grown up in a Mormon household in Texas, which had kept him very quiet, the Mirror reported.

He admitted that he was pretty dark kid then because he had acute awareness of his sexuality and was absolutely convinced that he was wrong.

Campaigning Dustin came out in college and went on to become a founding board member of the American Foundation for Equal Rights. (ANI)
