The son of two lesbian mothers, the 19-year-old University of Iowa engineering student had no idea that his heartfelt testimony before the Iowa House Judiciary Committee would have such an impact. Just two days later, a YouTube video of his testimony went viral.

He was a state champion in high school debate and multiple national finalist in competitive acting, but Zach had never before been given such an opportunity to stand up and speak out on behalf of his family. So that is what he did, becoming an advocate for his family and families like his all over the country. Whatever your thoughts on the subject, Zach provides a new perspective on marriage equality and something to think about.
