Back in 2016 Roman Blank made a life-changing revelation to his family. The great-grandfather, who was 95 years old at the time, summoned up the courage to come out as gay. And off the back of that incredible moment, Roman then shared a heartbreaking confession in an interview on YouTube the following year.
A resident of Beverly Hills, California, Roman lives in a nursing home apartment with his wife Ruth Blank. The pair have known each other for decades now – coming together after World War II ended. They originally hailed from the same area of Poland prior to the conflict and had reunited in Germany.
