The gay man world rejoiced with the news that its premier couple is finally going to tie the knot. Yes it is is finally happening, Tom Daley and Lance Black are officially on their waying to be Husband and Husband. Congratulations to them and their ultimate couple goals that inspires us, but also makes us jealous as h*ll.
1. They’re both the top of their profession game.
Like seriously, you can’t beat these two. Tom is a olympic medalist for diving and always a top competitor at international diving tournaments. He’s also been voted to be the UK’s favorite athlete. Lance on the other is a screenwriter, and one an oscar for his powerful movie Milk. What a power couple.
2. They’re huge LGBTQ advocates.
It just sort of comes with the territory of being one of the world’s best high-profile gay couples. But in addition to just existing and showing that love is love, the two constantly advocate for LGBTQ rights. Keep on fighting the good fight, boys!
3. Their engagement announcement was classy as h*ll.
They announced their marriage not through the loudspeaker of the internet, but by taking out a spot in the engagement section of their loval paper. Does it get much more classically romantic than that? The answer is no.
4. Um, they look amazing together?
Of course, of course beauty is really on the inside and all that jazz, but being hot on the outside never hurt either. And let’s face these two are both pretty swoon inducing. They both also have bodies that you couldn’t even get an ice cube near because it would have definitely vaporized within 5 feet of either of them. Gay men can’t have kids together (thanks biology) but if these two could then that kid would be one fine specimen.
5. Lance lives in London so that they can live together.
Lance is a screenwriter, film director, and a film/tv producer so it makes that sense that the easiest place for him to be would be LA, but he lives in London so that him and Tom can share a flat. It’s a heartwarming love sacrifice.
6. Age is just a number.
Tom is 21 and Lance is 41 (even though he basically looks likes he’s 30 at the most). Despite the age gap their relationship has been an upward motion from strength to strength. Love transcends any number games, and they exemplify that.
7. Their Insta game’s on fleek.
Their instagram accounts basically revolve around their relationship, and it’s the cutest most amazing thing on instagram, like when Lance posts encouraging photos while attending Tom’s diving competitions. A stroll through either of their feeds is enough to induce all of the feels.
8. Fashion on point.
When they show up to an event, they show up in full force. They both dress to the nines, and individually would make amazing arm candy. But being each other’s mutual arm candy? It’s almost too much to handle.
9. Tom is British.
That accent though… need I say more?!?
