Rebel Wilson and how she came out, publishing a picture with her girlfriend after a newspaper had informed her that they were planning to reveal her relationship, I thought: Why are we so interested in dabbling in other people’s lives?

Why should it matter?Why does someone care about who I’m sleeping with? Is it someone else’s business? What year is it?Things have changed a lot since I came out over 20 years ago [with an appearance at the 1994 Gay Games].

Back in the day when I was diving and living in the spotlight, reporters were respectful. I’d discuss the aspects of my personal life that I saw fit and that was it.Now, with so much social media around, people share their lives a lot more openly, but also get into other people’s lives a lot more.
