Video: DNC Shows Love for LGBT Activist Zach Wahls

This post comes from HRC Communications Intern Nick Gumas:

Zach Wahls, LGBT rights activist and son of two lesbian mothers, gave an impassioned speech last night at the Democratic National Convention aimed at combating the stigma against LGBT families by highlighting his own family’s normalcy. To a roaring, supportive crowd of Democratic delegates, Wahls described his family as just “like any other family. We eat dinner, we go to church, we have chores.”
