Life (UN)Closeted

Living A Bold Life with No Excuses. No Apologies.

You're done. Done just dreaming and not doing. Done apologizing for living life your way. Done shrinking your light for the comfort of others.

In Life (Un)Closeted, host Rick Clemons and his guests share bold, badass moves for coming out and owning your individuality. Each episode takes you on a brash, fun, and in-your-face storytelling ride to help you escape the crazy, limiting thoughts keeping you stuck and afraid.

No mater if you're LGBTQ, heteronormative, non-binary, or unsure... a closet is no place to hang out in.
