Grandfather Comes Out As Gay At 95 And Makes Heartbreaking Confession


A man who has been married to a woman for 67 years and fathered two children, five grandchildren and one great-grandchild has come out as gay at the age of 95.


In an interview with YouTube vlogger Davey Wavey , Roman, now aged 96, revealed how he had known he was gay at the age of five, but lived with this huge secret for nine decades. During that time he was married and had a family, always knowing that he wasn't being true to himself.

Last year, Roman finally shared his secret with his family after deciding there are "certain things he wants the world to know. He explained: "I just told them plain that I was born and I was all my life gay.

"I told them the whole tragedy of my life and then they understood what happened to me. Can you imagine 90 years to be in the closet?"


Davey then asked Roman if, now that he's out of the closet, he wants to have a boyfriend or companion, and he quickly replied 'yes'.

Does he have a type? Well, no. "I don't care!" he admits. "I don't look at the face, I look at the heart. Somebody to lean against. Somebody who feels the heart ticking - and nobody can do that unless you let them."

And then came an utterly heartbreaking confession.

Devastatingly, Roman doesn't feel as though he will be able to find a partner at his age after so many wasted years.

"I'll be very honest about it," he said, "I really don't need any either physical or mental connections, I don't need [them].

"But I want to I want to go to sleep and have somebody close to me, not for any other reason but to be sure that someone cares, you know? That's all."
