An unexpected prompt caused Lane Wood to change nearly every aspect of his life in a matter of months. He came out as gay, moved, became healthy and transformed his outlook. Born in conservative Oklahoma and once a pastor at his church, Lane shares exactly how he navigated out of the closet.  Turns out, we are all in some sort of closet. Coming out is just a difficult conversation. A closet is no place to live. For anyone.
