This one is for the guys…but you ladies can listen to, as I’m calling forth the men of the world to make a bold move and step out of their bullshit masculinity and be a little vulnerable. To be real. To be men without macho crap weighing them down. It’s time for men to start…

284: Uncloseted Riff and Rant – The Closet Of Racism

The hands of time seem to be spinning backwards at an alarming rate. Hate, discrimination, violence towards people of color has become a norm, and worst of all it is being tolerated. But it doesn’t have to be this way, nor does it have to be that “all lives matter.” In the words of Jesse…

282: Uncloseted Riff and Rant – Take Pride and Don’t Back Down

It’s Pride Month. Or at least that’s what those of us in the LGBTQI community call it. Not sure what Drumph and his cronies in Washington are going to say this year, since they didn’t’ really say anything last year. But screw them! We are here, were queer, and we have advocates all over the…

276: Uncloseted Riff and Rant – Your Ego. Your biggest enemy!
