Hollywood publicist Howard Bragman discussed the Manti Te'o controversy on his web show Gwissues with OutSports founder Cyd Ziegler, former MLB player Billy Bean, who came out after retiring, and activist Conor Gaughan.

Bragman asked Ziegler if he was taking heat for questioning whether Te'o was gay following the controversy involving the college football player's fake Internet girlfriend. Ziegler said he was and defended himself by saying that simply questioning whether someone is gay does not equate to insulting their character.
