336: Coach-to-Coach, Truths About Coming Out Later In Life – Anne-Marie Zanzal


It’s been awhile since we’ve done a “He said, she said” or a “Coach To Coach” segment. But when I was contact by Anne-Marie Zanzal, I knew it was time. Especially given our political climate where it appears that the far right, and maybe even the leaning right are coming after the LGBTQ community. Typically…

335: Uncloseted Riff and Rant – Curious George, Curious Rick, Curious You!


I used to love reading Curious George when I was a kid. Then, somehow the stars aligned and I married a guy named George and he always invites me to be curious, rather than jumping to assumptions, or conclusions. Thanks hubby. I’ve also learned in my own life explorations, that curiosity serves me or sucks…

334: Uncloseting Body Language – Leo (Lay-O) Cardenas


Imagine knowing exactly what someone is thinking. Or, at least having a pretty good idea of what they are thinking, all because their body speaks louder than their words. You could tell if they were really interested in a date. You’d be able to determine if he was serious about promoting you. Possibly you’d discover…

333: Uncloseted Riff and Rant – The fine art of PERMISSION


Have you ever found yourself asking for permission? Of course you have. The better question is, have you ever found yourself not giving yourself permission? Yeah! The permission to do something you really want to do. Or, the permission to say what you need to say. And better yet, the permission to make a mistake…

332: A Daughter’s Bold Truth – Stephanie Cenedella


Imagine coming into the world, just as your Father made a major life detour. His detour, one of shame in the world, was unbeknownst to you until the age of 13. By then, you’ve been socialized to believe that everything you now discovered your Father is, cannot be talked about in your conservative, church-going Iowa…

331: Uncloseted Riff and Rant – The Annoying Demands of Perfection


Nothing is perfect. Nothing. Nothing. Nothing. But we all know that, yet we pursue perfection and allow it to drive us batty. It’s such a waste of energy that could be put to better use. Which begs the question, “If perfection doesn’t exist, how could we better use our energy, than pursuing perfection?” Here’s two…

330: Making The Bold Move of Kindness – Jill Lublin


Kindness. At times it seems to be elusive. Especially in our world today. People from all walks of life seem more divisive and at odds with one another. Yet, how different would we all be, myself included, if we practiced more kindness, empathy, and understanding? It could be, and probably would be a completely different…

329: Uncloseted Riff and Rant – Let The Unexpected Be Yo Friend!


I know the future, I never encounter anything unexpected, and I am fully in control of what is to come. Yeah right! But don’t we wish that were true? Alas, the unexpected is inevitable. So why do we fight it, cringe when it shows up, and then wail and moan as we deal with it…

328: Bringing Hollywood Out of The LGBTQ Closet – Jason T. Gaffney

| | 1 Comment

Imagine, in the land of imagination – Hollywood – that LGBTQ characters have leading roles that are never based on stereotypes. That the main conflicts of LGBTQ characters face on the big screen aren’t based solely on their sexual orientation. That female characters have roles that go beyond mother, wife, daughter, and/or woman-in-jeopardy. And, that…

327: Uncloseted Riff and Rant – 3 Simple Confusion Busters


I’m never confused. You’re never confused. We’re all never confused. So why do we need to call Confusion Busters? Because we’re all lying! And, we all hate being in a state of confusion. Or at least most of us do. Those of you who enjoy confusion probably also have a thing for getting dental work…

Rick asked me to be on his podcast. I listened to some before I made the commitment. He is such the kind of person I surround myself with. These podcasts are very important for so many reasons but the most is that they will teach you about humanity.

It’s amazing to have people like Rick helping us all share and hear stories on how rewarding it can be to step into your own version of life. I’m thankful for this podcast—the opportunity to be on it was a nice bonus. Keep up the great work!

Wow, just wow! Rick is as real as it gets. Love this show; its honesty, depth and sheer entertainment! Thank You for doing the work you do!

Tom Connor

This is a wonderful show, and one with a true ministry, though not in the traditional religious sense. Rick has a calling. He helps folks who are struggling with coming out in the LGBT community. His own personal journey for sefl acceptance and understanding has given him the tools to help others. He's a wonderful host who knows how to draw good, meaningful conversation out of his guests. It was my honor and pleasure to be one of those guests.
