A resounding testament to the power of family and a reassurance that there is no wrong way to be who you are
In 2011 Zach Wahls (then ninteen years old)
bravely stood up in front of the Iowa House of Representative and
defended gay marriage and his family. Wahls proudly proclaimed, “The
sexual orientation of my parents has had zero effect on the content of
my character,” and his speech instantly went viral and became YouTube’s most popular political video of 2011.
In My Two Moms, Zach offers a
stirring and brave defense of his family. Raised by two moms in a
conservative Midwestern town, Zach’s parents instilled in him values
that families everywhere can embrace—values driven home by his journey
toward becoming an Eagle Scout. Zach’s upbringing couldn’t have been
more mainstream—he played sports, was active in Boy Scouts, and led his
high school speech and debate team—yet, growing up with two moms, he
knows what it’s like to feel different and fear being bullied—or worse.
In the inspirational spirit of It Gets Better edited by Dan Savage and Terry Miller, My Two Moms
also delivers a reassuring message to same-sex couples, their kids, and
anyone who’s ever felt like an outsider: you are not alone. Download and start listening now!
