Olympic gold medalist Tom Daley has made a plea to the Commonwealth Games to prevent any nation from hosting an event that has laws that are discriminatory against the LGBT community. The Olympic gold medalist in the men’s high jump, who is now 28 years old and who came out as homos*xual in public a few years ago, won the competition in the Tokyo Games last summer.

In the summer of 2016, Daley brought home the gold for Great Britain at the Olympic Games in Tokyo. Attribution: PA The Olympic gold medalist has spoken out against homophobia, which is still prevalent in the sporting world. He is married to Dustin Lance Black, who won an Academy Award, and the couple welcomed a kid in 2018.

While preparing to participate in the upcoming BBC documentary Tom Daley: Illegal to Be Me, he is presently leveraging his prominence to raise awareness about the need for the sporting industry to take a stand against homophobic prejudice. And in a sneak peek of the program, he critiques how stupid it is that sporting events are still going place in nations that restrict homos*xual males. He says it’s ridiculous because it’s hypocritical.

During the show, he made the following statement: “It would be unlawful to exist in 35 of the Commonwealth’s 56 states.” I mean it’s simply outrageous. “In today’s day and age, the majority of international sports federations assert that they welcome LGBT athletes. “But this year, both the World Cup and Formula 1 will be held in nations that carry the death penalty for homos*xuality [Qatar and Saudi Arabia].”

“But this year, the World Cup will be staged in both of these countries.” “As a previous medallist, the Commonwealth Games are very important to me, and I want to do everything I can to persuade them to become the first athletic event to truly take a stance. “I was told that politics and sports should not come into conflict with one other.

However, at the same time, it is important to be aware of what is going on in the world around you. My goal at this point is to persuade the Commonwealth Games to declare that they would not let any country that has laws that are discriminatory against LGBT people host the Commonwealth Games.

“I am aware that this is an audacious hope, but in order to make a difference, we have to begin somewhere.” As part of the initiative, Daley will go to some of the most homophobic nations in the Commonwealth in order to gain a better understanding of the severity of the persecution that homosexual sportsmen endure. Tom Daley’s show, “Illegal to Be Me,” will appear on BBC One on Tuesday evening. Photo credit: BBC
