90-year-old Kenneth Felt has come out as gay to friends and family after pretending to be straight for the better part of a century. It’s a decision Felts arrived at as he began working on an autobiography during quarantine, prompting memories and emotions to resurface from his past.

“For a long time, the truth was buried deep down in my soul and I adopted a straight persona because I did not think I had another choice,” Felts says. “I would’ve had to contend with all the scorn from society...But people are much more accepting today and I felt I had to find the courage.” https://abcn.ws/31zckPh
