When Robert Rushmore, was five years old, his family moved from Chicago to a small town in Minnesota. He spent his childhood hiding in the closet, not wanting to be seen by others. As he got older, he realized that this was how he could control his life. He could be whoever he wanted to be, and no one would know the real him. Robert spent his adolescence and adulthood living in the closet, never revealing his true identity to anyone. He married a woman he met in a closet, and they had three children in the closet. When their youngest son was diagnosed with a terminal illness, Robert decided it was time to come out. He published A Life In The Closet, his true story, and began to tour the country. He is now a sought-after speaker, and his message is that anyone can live a life they love, if they are willing to hide in the closet.; 8vo; $6.00.
