"What is the world
thinking of me? My number one concern is to marry a woman so that I
can maintain my cover. Regardless of how much I love 'hooking up with
a brotha', I fear how society views me."
On July 27th, God blessed Mary and Jake Sledge with
their fourth and final child Zachary. Being raised with confidence,
strong work ethics and the desire to succeed has placed Zachary on the
path to becoming the most sought after Radio Personality on the East
coast. Known as Zachary to his family and friends and "Zack Zack
Zachary" to his loyal fans, he'll stop at nothing to hide his true
sexuality; because he believes it will derail him from his successful
public career - not to mention his relationship with family and friends.
Currently hosting The Zach Zach Zachary Show weekday mornings on WK-VJB
(B-97.1) in Atlanta, Georgia, he's pleased with his position and provides
a tremendous amount of financial and community support within the urban
communities where his show is broadcasted. His sister Kathy Sledge-Vanlandingham,
is two years older and also resides in Atlanta. She's the Executive
Producer of Atlanta AM, a television morning show. Her husband, Larry
is one of the senior partners at the architectural firm Bullock, Vanlandingham
Jeanette and Quincy are key players in Zachary's hidden sexual confusion.
Jeanette, who's a Psychiatrist, has been a part of Zachary's life for
three years. She loves him and enjoys being on his arm and making public
appearances. Zachary represents everything Jeanette is seeking in a
man. Zachary cares for Jeanette; however, he uses her as an accessory
to maintain his "cover" in the public's eye. He would like
to move forward with marriage but cannot bring himself to "pop"
the question. Quincy, on the other hand, has Zachary's heart. As the
entrepreneur of a computer company, Quincy understands Zachary's situation,
but he doesn't endorse it. He doesn't understand why Zachary cannot
present himself to the public as a single man. Quincy tried for months
to end their two-year relationship, but his heart will not allow it
