A man who has been married to a woman for 67 years and fathered two children, five grandchildren and one great-grandchild came 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.” Roman, who lives in Los Angeles, 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. In a beautiful moment during the interview, Davey told Roman that he’s proud of him and he responded: “Thank you. I am proud.”
