Zach Cooke, The Selection

No. 5: Zach Cooke

Participant

Age: 28

Location: Atlanta, GA

Growing up gay in rural Missouri was no easy task, so Zach threw himself into sports in the hopes that he would eventually impress his judgmental father. Zach always wanted to serve his country, and plans on enlisting in the Navy now that it is more accepting of tattoos and openly gay personnel.
