Harry Borden shoots fiancés Dustin Lance Black and Tom Daley for Out, in a series of images showing their cuddly, romantic side.
In the feature, Black talks about the first time he met Daley, when the diver was 18:
First off, let me be honest: When Tom walked in I was, like, Oh my God, he’s so cute. I knew who he was — I’d watched the Olympics — but in person I found him more mature and confident than I had expected. He came in with this gaggle of beautiful women so I had no idea what his sexuality was. In fact, he seemed all loved up on this beautiful blonde, so I thought, Well, there you go. But occasionally I would look over to my right and I would catch Tom looking at me — that split second when someone is looking at you before they realize they’ve been caught and look away. And I thought, That’s not straight.
But cruising turned to love pretty quickly:
He texted me the next morning, and then I texted him after dinner that night to see what he was up to. He said, “Oh, I’m having a party at my house, if you’d like to come.” I replied that I had work the next day, but there was a bar at the hotel if he wanted to come over. And long story short, he came over, and we literally spent three or four hours talking about the crap that we’d been through. His brother had only just passed away, and my dad had died in 2011, and we talked about his mum and her struggles with her illnesses — sadly, she’s no longer with us — and we just really connected. It was one of the first times that I felt, Oh my God, this isn’t just a thing where I am attracted to someone. This is someone that I’ve connected with on a whole new level. It was new for me, and that was when I thought, Shit, I’m in trouble here.
