Be prepared to cry on this one, we are having trouble holding back the tears as we watch this. Edge media writes, 

“In a very moving video, gay YouTube star Davey Wavey speaks with a 96-year-old man who is a Holocaust survivor and came out as gay just last year. He’s also the subject of an upcoming documentary called “On My Way Out.”

In Wavey’s 3-minute clip, Roman Blank explains how he lived his life as a closeted gay man, married a woman and had children. Blank decided to come out as gay and live as his true self just last year.

Wavey asks Blank, who is a great grandfather, why he decided to come out at 95.

“Some things I want the world to know,” Blank says, later adding he knew he was gay since age 5.

Wavey asks Blank if he wants a boyfriend or companion now that he’s out.

A shy but silly Blank whispers, “Yes!”

“I don’t care [what he looks like]. I don’t look at the face, I look at the heart,” he says. Blank adds that he wants someone “to lean against. Somebody who feels the heart ticking and nobody can do that unless you love them.”
