Ralph was nineteen when he told his grandmother his sexual orientation, but even with her comfort he found himself back in the closet. He married and had four children. He finally came out to his daughter Laura telling her how he had once viewed his sexuality an affliction. His wife knew his secret, but they remained married together until she died. Only now in his eighties that Ralph finally started to freely and authentically show his true self as a gay man. Laura tells the story of her father and his secret and the effect this had on their lives.
This sounds like an emotional roller coaster of a journey and one that is relatable and important to hear. I think this would be very interesting read.
