Christmas is the time of year to celebrate and indulge in food, fun and a little bit of extra Christmas cheer. As is the Eikon tradition we thought it only fair to follow traditions of Christmas’ past and give our readers some extra eye candy before the big day arrives.

Welcome to Eikon’s 12 Gays of Christmas.

Gay 5 – Tom Daley

Arguably the most famous gay male in the world, Tom Daley makes the 12 Gays of Christmas list for the second year in a row and what a year it has been for the 22-year-old.

Tom has taken us on journey’s across continents, into bathtubs of coffee beans, from hikes up Runyon Canyon through to diving shots atop Sugarloaf Mountain overlooking Rio.

But to his credit Tom has continued to be the shining, happy light among his peers and this year has gone on to release a book, feature in a portrait exhibition, start a fitness youtube series and (much to the delight of his many gay fans) continue to post and be shot with basically nothing on.

We hope both Tom and Dustin can muster up the smiles to have a happy Christmas together and we look forward to wedding bells in the near future…..unless Sam Smith gets in the way.
