The relationship between Olympic diver Tom Daley and Oscar winner Dustin Lance Black took people by surprise when it was reported last week.
But it’s clear through a series of photos recently posted on Queerty that the pair have been quietly hanging together for a large chunk of the year.
While some have been critical of the 20 year age difference between the two men (Black is 39, Daley is 19), the 2012 bronze medalist has received positive feedback for his coming out YouTube video and interview on ITV.
He also clearly knows how to handle his fans with respect.
A short video has just emerged of Daley in Houston, reportedly taken in October, in which he cheerfully signs autographs and poses for photos.
Standing in the background waiting patiently is Black.
