Robbie Rogers says he sees wedding
bells in his future.
Rogers, 26, came out of retirement in
May to become the U.S's first active openly gay male professional
athlete. He received a loud ovation from the stands as he took the
field in his Los Angeles Galaxy debut.
Rogers publicly came out gay and
announced his retirement from professional soccer in an online post
in February. At the time, he was playing for a UK team.
In a Google+ hangout hosted by The
Trevor Project, Rogers was asked where he sees himself in the next 10
“I don't even know where I see myself
a year from now,” Rogers answered. “I never even imagined myself
coming out to my family. And then coming out and playing in a sport
“I want to get married. I want to be
in love. I want to just be happy. Be happy and be around my family.
And see them and their relationships. Just be a part of my family's
life where before I felt like I was a bit of zombie – I was there
but I wasn't there emotionally.” (The video is embedded on this
