Zach Wahls (whose sexual orientation is unknown to me, so including him on this blog is a wild stretch) appeared in the most-watched political YouTube video of 2011 (18,000,000 views and counting). He spoke before the Iowa legislature, urging them to reject a constitutional amendment that would deny marriage equality to homosexuals, his lesbian mothers in particular. It is undeniable that he is a man of influence when it comes to gay people. His video documented one of the most inspiring, convincing and influential speeches I’ve heard; he is obviously passionate about his family, so it’s worth taking three minutes to watch it again:
Zach now appears in another video that sends a seasonal greeting with the message: Love Makes a Family. This video is compiled from photos submitted by thousands of families who wished to join Wahl, his mothers and his sister in sending a holiday greeting.
Happy New Year to all!
