The son of two lesbian mothers, the 20-year-old University of Iowa engineering student had no idea that his heartfelt testimony before the Iowa Legislature last year would spread like viral wildfire, and even land him on The Ellen DeGeneres Show. Just two days after he testified during that hearing, however, a YouTube video of his testimony went viral, garnering nearly two million view with millions more via Facebook, Twitter, national and international television, and other online media. After appearing on numerous television programs in persona and his testimony airing on MSNBC, ABC, CBS and CNN, Zach found himself working on a book and has now penned a game changing college and university lecture called, “what makes a family?” Zach shares a story that has never before been told, and offers a fresh, bold perspective on recently rekindled-and always contentious-issue: gay marriage.
