Watch a 95-year-old come out as gay in this brilliant video

Joseph McCormick March 3, 2017

A 95-year-old man has come out as gay on a YouTube video, and gives some heartwarming advice about dating.

Roman appears in the video alongside gay YouTuber DaveyWavey, and talks about coming out after being married to his wife for 67 years.

In the video, Roman – who has two children, five grandchildren and one great grandchild, said he felt at 95 it was about time he came out.

When he says he wants a boyfriend and Davey asks him what he should look like, he gives some pretty good advice a lot of people could heed.

He says: “I don’t look at the face, I look at the heart. Somebody to lean against. Somebody who feels the heart ticking.”

Of his family’s reaction to him coming out, he says: “I just told them plain that I was born and 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?”

Speaking of his plans now that he is out, Roman says he has a simple want in life.

He says: “I want to go to sleep [and] have somebody close to me. Not for any other reason, but to be sure that someone cares.”

Check out the video below:

Meanwhile, a transgender guy has revealed in a video that he confided in his 83-year-old gran, and her response is incredible.
