Come out...stay in....make up my mind!
"GH: In your blog ( http://puchtel.blogspot.com) you said that you made a public spectacle out of yourself when you came out. What happened?
ZP: It was a spectacle because it was on stage, in front of about 3000 people. I stopped the show, walked to the front of the stage, and made my announcement that I was gay."
"GH: Many athletes at the levels that you played at had access to women that the average college student doesn’t… did this ever present a conflict for you?
ZP: No, because I love women.
GH: You had a serious girlfriend, right?
ZP: Yes, I dated her for close to a year and half.
GH: How did she react when you told her? Was she surprised?
ZP: I had shared some feelings with her, but yeah, she was shocked. She was very understanding. For the record, I’m not gay, I am who I am.
GH: Does that mean that you are interested in dating men or women?
GH: I'm a little confused, how is that coming out if you still want to date women?
ZP: I had to find out exactly where I stood with my own sexuality, and so I did.
GH: So...you experimented and realized you did want to be with women?
ZP: I’m at a point that if I met someone and loved them, I wouldn't let their gender get in the way, and I don’t think anyone should."
