Tom Daley Tops Attitude Magazine's Hot 100 List, Poses For Cover

Daley

The new issue of Attitude magazine finds Tom Daley slightly more clothed than usual, opting for jeans rather than a speedo. Still, the superstar diver is burning up the cover. His dashing good looks were not the focus of his interview, though it does happen to coincide with the release of Attitude's Hot 100 List, upon which Daley is sitting pretty at number one.

Attitude reports:

“I just wanted to say a massive thank you to everyone who voted for me in Attitude’s HOT 100 – it means the world,” said Tom following the announcement at Attitude’s exclusive HOT 100 party in central London.

Though one could admire Daley for his impressive diving technique, or his six-pack, he is also a role model for young LGBT people around the globe.

In his first ever gay press interview, the 20-year-old Olympic diver talks about how he balances his rigorous training schedule with his relationship with American screenwriter Dustin Lance Black – and also discusses coming out in a YouTube video last December.

“If the video helped anyone going through something similar, then that’s great,” Daley says. “I filmed that video because I wanted to tell people in my own words.”

After saying that “everyone should have the right to marry the person they love”, the London 2012 bronze medallist reveals that he sees himself getting married one day. “Family is something that has always been really important to me and yes, at some point I would love to marry and have kids,” he says.

Congrats Tom!


Atari To Introduce 'Pridefest' Video Game

Now that national pride month is winding down, ask yourself: have you ever wanted to organize your own pride parade? Assuming that the answer is “well obviously, who hasn’t?” then Atari has a new game with your name on it. Pridefest, the first LGBT-themed game from Atari, allows player to channel their inner event planner, challenging them to throw the most extravagant pride parade they can think of.

“Players will need to solve challenges and complete quests to unlock new parade and festival supplies, or receive other bonuses.” Atari said, in a press release

"We are excited to be developing Atari's first LGBT-themed game that will give players of all backgrounds the chance to play a fun and unique game that represents a passionate cause," said Todd Shallbetter, Chief Operating Officer, Atari Inc. "We will continue offering a variety of games that are inclusive for all Atari fans and Pridefest ™ is another example of how we are doing that."

Neither gameplay footage nor screenshots have been released, and Atari is keeping quiet about a release date. If we had to venture a guess, however, we imagine Pridefest will play a lot like SimCity, but with better music and NPC gogo boys. Follow the game's development on Twitter or Facebook.


AFA Issues Action Alert About Burger King's 'Homosexual Conduct-Promoting' Proud Whopper

BURGER_KING-PROUD_WHOPPERThe American Family Association has issued an action alert warning concerned citizens of the potential dangers posed by Burger King’s recent “Proud Whopper” promotion. The burger, which comes wrapped in rainbow packaging, was sold at a select number of Burger King locations to commemorate gay pride month. Unless there is  substantial pushback from the public, the AFA warns, the fast food chain might expand the marketing in the future.

“Unless Burger Kings sees a backlash for promoting cross-dressing and homosexual conduct as normal behavior, it will expand the promotion to other cities and additional stores next year.” The organization intoned grimly on its website.

Ever the helpful bunch, the AFA has set up a campaigning portal that will generate perturbed e-mails designed to let Burger King know just how terrifying you think rainbow wrappers are.

“I am offended by Burger King's stunt in offering a so-called "Proud Whopper" in San Francisco. What were you thinking?” The e-mail template reads. “I hope you will learn from this publicity blunder and realize that while most stores did not participate in the corporate-approved program, the damage has been done and affects the image of all Burger King outlets.”

Burger King boasted 32.7% profit increase earlier this after after a round of cost saving cuts and menu restructuring.

Ricky Martin May Have 'Mentored' Ian Thorpe Through His Coming Out Experience

2_thorpe

Australian tabloids are spreading a rumor: that Ricky Martin, currently a judge on the Aussie version of The Voice, mentored professional swimmer Ian Thorpe prior to his coming out this week. The "Thorpedo," as he was called when he swam in the 2000 Olympics in Sydney, told Sir Michael Parkinson that he is gay in a pre-recorded interview for Channel 10. Martin is currently denying any connection to Thorpe.

The Independent reports:

“I am extremely happy that he is talking about his happiness, and that is where I would like to leave it,” Martin apparently told a Daily Mail reporter when asked about the claims as he promoted his The Voice Australia finalist contestant in Melbourne yesterday (15 July)...

Martin was among the first to tweet his support for Thorpe:

Whether Martin and Thorpe were connected or not, it is heartening to see such support.

Martin recently expressed the joy he felt after his own coming out experience, stating in a radio interview, “I wish I could come out again because that moment felt very blissful. It really feels amazing and then when it happens you realise all your fears were in your head.” Hopefully Thorpe has felt much the same.
