This Is What Happens When You're Raised By Lesbians

"Can gays even raise kids?"

Here’s Zach Wahls, a 19-year-old University of Iowa, speaking about being raised by two moms during a public forum on House Joint Resolution 6 in the Iowa House of Representatives:


Among others, Wahls was at this hearing to oppose House Joint Resolution 6 which would end civil unions in Iowa. Though posted to youtube last February, blogged the clip yesterday and it’s gone viral for reasons you can understand. What a beautiful testimonial. What a tragedy that speeches like this need to be made.

Wahls says, “”my family isn’t really different from yours.” I’d say it’s only different in the sense that many of us can learn from your example.
