Out at Age 78

In and after high school I dated girls, and at about age 20 I entered a strict religious community and took vows of poverty, chastity and obedience. During those years I had doubts about my sexuality, but honored the vows. After leaving the community, a man whom I knew asked me if I was gay, and I responded that I was a 42-year-old virgin. He said if I wanted to do something about that to give him a call, and I did. Later I met and married an amazing woman, and after more than 20 years of marriage, we decided to separate, and later divorced. When the horrible massacre of 49 gay young people at the Pulse Nightclub in Orlando happened, I finally admitted to myself that I was gay, and came out to my former spouse and the world.
