Online Chats

Safe, supportive spaces
to talk about the stuff needing talked about!

40 Plus Men's Chats grew out of the podcast by the same name, 40 Plus: Real Men. Real Talk.

We have candid conversations for guys over 40, with guys over 40. Nothing is off limits - relationships, sex, health, careers, passions, purpose, success, failures - we cover it all on our monthly chats that are themed for a particular topic, but the floor is wide open for anyone to chat about anything they have going on in their lives.

Men from all walks of life are welcome - gay, straight, retired, still working, divorced, in long-term relationships - we do not discriminate and  our goal is to create a safe, non-judgmental, virtual environment for guys over 40 to have real talks, with real men.

We don't throw shade, we dump our bullshit at the door, and we ensure that who you are and how you show up as a man is accepted with open arms. Our goal is for you to be seen, heard, understood while gaining clarity on whatever situation is going on in your life.

Coming out is a challenging endeavor, even with the right support. Add to the mix coming out later in life, possibly having been married, being a parent, and the journey gets even more chaotic.

Born out of the work that Rick became known for as The Coming Out Coach, and using over 400 episodes of the Life (UN)Closeted as a wealth of information, Coming Out Men's Chats are that safe space for the guy who is struggling with his sexuality, exploring the possibilities coming out of the closet, or already navigating his new life as a gay man.

From saying your gay, to hooking up; wanting a monogamous relationship to having conversations with your kids about being gay; navigating minds of gay men to understanding your sexual health - our chats are aimed at giving you support, helping you gain clarity, and creating a space to chat with like-minded guys on the same journey to come out of the closet with dignity and respect.  Open up, and know you are not alone in this journey.

LGBTQ Virtual Community Gathering is about creating an online space for anyone in the LGBTQ coummnity to feel connected during this time of "physical distancing" so that we don't "social distance."

As a community we often feel isolated, and separated from the rest of society, simply because we don't fit into the contrived boxes of humanity. Now, with the COVID-19 pandemic playing out in our lives, many LGBTQ individuals are bound to feel more isolated from our LGBTQ community, but that doesn't have to happen.

Each Friday morning will be meeting virtually to connect, no matter what you need - a chat, a listening ear, advice, laughter, to cry, to get clarity and support - whatever you need.

Come join us, and encourage a friend to join as well. We will be using Zoom video conferencing, or you can call in as well.

Don't isolate, come connect and play in our online virtual community with other LGBTQ individuals. Remember, we're all in this together.

Rick is all heart, brains, and soul. Every interview he does is filled with thoughtful, laser focus and love. I was honored to get to appear with my husband Bob when our book came out, and I knew the interview would be great...I was right. Rick, thank you for continuing to provide a safe place for all of us to love better and be ourselves.

Rick does a sensational job of digging deep and creating a safe, vulnerable space for listeners to grow and think. And he holds nothing back in the process!!!
