    I Am Gay, I Am Out, and I Am Free

    Born in 1930, Ken Felts knew he liked boys starting at age 12. But he didn’t come out as gay until he was 90 years old. Hear about his lost love of a lifetime, his reaction to his daughter coming out while he was still closeted, and how his life has changed since he shared his secret. (We ran into a little bit of trouble with Ken’s audio, but I promise this episode is still worth a listen!)
