There's nothing more frightful than coming out for the first time, and it's a fear that most LGBTQ people face early in their lives. But imagine spending more than 90 years in the closet. What does coming out feel like then?
In a recent video, Roman Blank sat down with YouTube darling Davey Wavey to talk about his coming-out as gay last year--at the age of 95.
"I told [my family] the whole tragedy of my life, and then they understood," Blank said. "Can you imagine 90 years in the closet?"
Blank admitted he knew he was gay since he was 5 years old. However, he never came out about his sexual identity; he married and raised a family in the U.S. His and his wife's story is planned for a documentary called On My Way Out, apparently being led by one of their grandchildren.
