Marriage Equality Advocate
Zach Wahls is a sixth-generation Iowan, a proud Hawkeye, the son of two lesbian mothers and an outspoken advocate for marriage equality. Since a video of his testimony about his family before the Iowa House Judiciary Committee became YouTube's number one political video of 2011, he's continued to share his story and advocate for full equality under the law. When he's not busy writing, speaking or working on his various entrepreneurial ventures, he enjoys watching movies, putzing around the Interwebs, playing video games, relaxing at home in Iowa and rooting for the Green Bay Packers.
