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.

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.

Which begs the question, “If perfection doesn’t exist, how could we better use our energy, than pursuing perfection?” Here’s two…

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.

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

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.
