Growing up with two moms: Zach Wahls’ experience
Zach Wahls, the son of a lesbian couple, first came into public view when he delivered a moving speech in support of same-sex marriage in the Iowa House of Representatives. More recently, he spoke in support of gay marriage at the Democratic National Convention, where he noted that his family is as “real” as the traditional nuclear family, and that “every child deserves a family as loving and committed as [his]”. He has also published a memoir about his life – My Two Moms: Lessons of Love, Strength, and What Makes a Family.
