Whether you’re exploring your sexuality, considering coming out, or recently out, one of the most often overlooked challenges in owning your truth. Yes, we own it to come out, but the own it I’m talking about is owning it consistently and with commitment. Doing your best to not falter. Standing in your values your way. Even sometimes going up against the LGBTQ community who tries to put you in a closet of their making that says, “This is the way you do LGBTQ!” No, no, no. You own your truth your way on your terms and that is what this final episode in the series is about – You owning your truth – no excuses, no fears, no apologies.
Rick’s a culture disruptor (shakes up the status quo), closet buster (shatters silly beliefs), and a bold move expert (like Superman without the muscles and cape). His superpower is guiding closet dwellers – which is every human – to break free of fear, make bold moves, and live life without apology.
Everything Rick’s discovered about living life his way, he learned from coming out of the closet at 36, getting laid off from two sweet corporate jobs, and making the crazy decision to become an entrepreneur at age 43. Rick’s book – Frankly My Dear I’m Gay, podcasts – Life (UN)Closeted and 40 Plus: Real Men, Real Talk, his coming out coaching practice, in-your-face keynotes, and experiential workshops represent his no b.s. approach for making bold moves, no excuses, no fears, no apologies
He was put on this earth to remind people that closets are for clothes not living. He’s a husband to his husband, survived raising two girls—thus, the reason he’s bald—and will gladly work for wine, but prefers money to pay for things like toilet paper and ice cream.
