Zach Wahls LGBT Family Testimony: Top 2011 Political Video on YouTube

Zach Wahls’ February 2011 testimony before the Iowa state legislature defending marriage equality garnered nearly 20 million views on YouTube, making it the most-watched political video of 2011.

Zach’s testimony carried a powerful message that drowned out the vitriolic rhetoric of anti-LGBT opponents who claimed marriage equality threatened families. His story was simple: his moms were lesbians, and he was perfectly ok. His parents were not so different than anyone else's - together, they formed a loving, stable family.

Watch Zach’s message for Iowa lawmakers.
