Guest shares his experience of living in two-mother household

October 5, 2012

Guest speaker, Zach Wahls (second from right), is pictured with students Michael Salazar, Courtney Bergstrom and Sarah Turf after sharing his experience growing up with his two mothers in Iowa. When he was 19, Wahls testified at a court case that challenged a law permitting same sex marriage in Iowa. The next morning he woke up a celebrity with various national news stations and talk shows trying to interview him. Wahls encouraged students to take advantage of the same social media and Internet sites that made his issue famous.
