The retired olympic diver took to his Instagram account to promote the musical Kinky Boots in Melbourne. He writes: 'Being myself hasn't always been easy. It got better when i accepted who I am... it got a whole lot better when I became proud of who I am.' 'Just look at me: a full-grown man playing the ukulele wearing sparkly red boots... I couldn't be happier if I tried!' he goes on to say in the post.
