Roman Blank is 95 years old. He’s been married for 67 years. 

He has 2 kids and 5 grandchildren.

He also has a secret that he’s held on to for 90 long years.

Roman Blank is gay.

He has known about his sexual orientation all his life. In fact, he says he has known it every since he was 5 but he kept it from the world until he came out late last year, at 95 years of age. His wife only learnt about this since the birth of their second child.

So what made Mr Blank keep everyone else in the dark while he led a ‘normal’ life. 

How about you hear it from Roman himself… 

Blank’s story is being made into a documentary titled On My Way Out. You can read more about his life and his story here.
