Dustin Lance Black Talks About His Engagement to Tom Daley
Oscar winning writer Dustin Lance Black has opened up about his engagement to British diver Tom Daley.
“I met someone who completely gets me,” he shares in an interview for the podcast, Defining Marriage.
“I definitely know that we’re better for having each other. We dream bigger. Things seem so much more possible together. Two and a half years in and it still feels like every day is a dream.”
He says of getting married:
“There’s power in the word, that the word is understood by society and it means that when you say ‘I’m married’ or getting married, it’s a promise you make to the person you love, and I think that promise creates so much. It creates so much potential, and is understood by so many people.”
He recalls the speech he gave regarding marriage and equality on the night he won his Oscar:
“There’s two things I said: I said full federal equality, and we have that now in terms of marriage; I also said that one day I hoped that I’d be able to fall in love and get married. I never dreamed in that time I would meet somebody and fall in love and get engaged. I just never knew if that was something I’d be able to appreciate in my own lifetime.”
Congrats again, guys!
