Inspiring Words On Marriage Equality From The Son of Two Lesbians [VIDEO]

Making its rounds on YouTube this week is the incredibly articulate Zach Wahls as he speaks during a public forum on House Joint Resolution 6 in the Iowa House of

Representatives. The Resolution, if passed, would amend the Iowa Constitution to define marriage as between one man and one woman.

In the end, even with Zach’s inspiring testimony as a young man of character raised by two lesbian moms (see below), the House voted 62 to 37 to approve the resolution and put the question of the definition of marriage on the ballot.

If you haven’t yet seen this clip, please watch it. It says everything about the power of how our families — especially those who speak up for us as straight allies — can make a huge difference on this journey toward marriage equality.
