Zach Wahls is a 19 year-old from Iowa. He has a good GPA, is studying Engineering at University, and happens to be a very eloquent speaker.
Here he is speaking about the family he grew up in, his identity, and how the Iowa House of Representatives should not allow Join Resolution 6 to pass.
For those who don’t know, Iowa is currently trying to pass a law to end civil unions in Iowa. Since GLBT marriage is still prohibited in the U.S., this would end all legal unions for GBLT couples.
As a member of the LGBT community, I do hope that Iowa choses the right path and not the wrong one. And as the wife of an American citizen, I can never see us and our two wonderful, beautiful daughters ever move back to the U.S. until we have the same rights and privileges as everyone else.
To help fight this bill, you can donate to ActBlue, an online support fund to help Democratic action in Iowa.
