Rick Clemons is a life strategist, an entrepreneur, a coming out coach, an author, and a gay man who inspires people to laugh, cry, take a deeper look at the joy ride that is the human experience, love deeply, work passionately, and live authentically. He tried to be heterosexual for 38 years. When that broke, so did he, but he also started being himself. Through divorce, coming out, and saying good-bye to a globe-trotting executive career, he was jolted into his new reality. Now he is doing what he loves — helping others, regardless of sexuality, come out of hiding and into their own brilliant differentness. Clemons has been featured in Huffington Post, Your Tango, GayGuys.com, Healthy Gay Lifestyles, Fit Pregnancy, Yahoo Shine, Elizabeth Street, The Ricki Lake Show, Finding Cupid, and numerous other media outlets. He speaks on behalf of PFLAG at colleges, universities, and entrepreneurial retreats.
