We seriously have a huge crush on Zach Wahls! He's soo amazing!!
The 20-year-old wonder man, who gave a powerful speech advocating FOR gay marriage as the Iowa House of Representatives deliberated on the constitutionality of gay marriage (they ultimately banned it), is coming out with a brand new book.
In the video (above) he talks about his experience growing up with two moms, and how they helped him grow into a mature and functioning adult.

"My hope for the book above all else is to really show people that this is just a portrait of another American family. Just as valid as any other American family."
So true, Zach.

LOL!!! Aww… Kimmy….
But he does make a point!! The "sanctity" case isn't so valid if we're gonna let divorces happen left and right, now is it??

Doesn't surprise us, really.
Republican presidential candidate Rick Santorum told a New Hampshire crowd on January 6 that children are better off with a father in prison than being raised by lesbian parents.
