WNBA Baller Sharnee Zoll Norman Comes Out Of The Closet

Via HuffingtonPost

Women’s National Basketball Association (WNBA) Chicago Sky guard Sharnee Zoll-Norman officially came out during an exclusive interview with the Windy City Times.

The five-foot-seven-inch basketball player is married and has mentioned her wife in previous interviews, but her sexuality has never been publicized. The former Los Angeles Sparks player intentionally never had a formal coming out.

“It’s never been printed,” she said.

Zoll-Norman continued saying that she never felt that her sexuality had any connection with her basketball career.

“I never felt whether I’m gay, straight, bi, [or] whatever that my sexuality had anything to do with me as a basketball player, and I don’t think it necessarily has anything to do with me as a person,” she said. “If I was straight, I wouldn’t have to come out and say that I was straight.”

During the interview, Zoll-Norman, who is playing alongside this year’s WNBA second draft pick, Elena Delle Donne, discussed her life as a lesbian, her first appearance in a Pride parade and more.

Congratulations Sharnee, live your truth girl.
