Zach Wahls was a 19-year-old University of Iowa freshman in 2011, when he spoke to a state judiciary committee about full marriage equality.
His words went viral and drew national attention.
“The sexual orientation of my parents has had zero effect on the content of my character,” he said.
A YouTube video of his speech received more than 2 million views.
Wahls, who has become an advocate for gay marriage and gay parents, is the author of “My Two Moms: Lessons of Love, Strength and What Makes a Family.”
