This Is What Happens When You Are Raised By Two Lesbians


In 2011, Zach Wahls – a 19-year-old University of Iowa student at the time – touched millions of people around the world when his speech at a  public forum on House Joint Resolution 6 in the Iowa House of Representatives went viral. He spoke about growing up with two mothers, the strength of his family and why he opposed House Joint Resolution 6, which would end civil unions in Iowa.

Wahls’ speech was posted on, which gave it the iconic headline “Two Lesbians Raised A Baby And This Is What They Got”.

Where is he now?

Three years later, Wahls is a White House intern, taking his local activism for marriage equality national. From the looks of it, this will hardly be Wahls’ last job in the White House.
