Wahls, who spoke at the 2012 Democratic National Convention talks about his book, which recounts growing up with two lesbian parents. Pride weekend special at North Fourth Art Center, 4904 4th St NW. Tickets are the cost of the book $16 and available online, via phone, at Bookworks, or at the door.
Zach Wahls, the son of two moms who made history with his memorable speech to politicians and the nation, visits Albuquerque during Pride Parade weekend for a talk at the North Fourth Art Center.
On January 31, 2011, Zach Wahls addressed the Iowa House Judiciary Committee in a hearing regarding a proposed constitutional amendment to ban gay marriage in Iowa.
The 19-year-old son of a same-sex couple, Wahls proudly proclaimed, “the sexual orientation of my parents has had zero effect on the content of my character.” This speech went viral on YouTube, and Wahls went on to speak at the 2012 Democratic National Convention.
Same-sex marriage continues to be a major issue in the election cycle, and Wahls speaks to that, but also to a broader issue: acceptance.
Despite being handsome and athletic, an environmental engineering student, and an Eagle Scout, growing up with two moms, Wahls knows what it’s like to feel different and to fear ridicule, or worse.
In the inspirational spirit of the “It Gets Better” campaign, My Two Moms also delivers a reassuring message to same-sex couples, their kids, and anyone who’s ever felt like an outsider:
“You are not alone.”

Kick off Stonewall Weekend with Charis Books, Atlanta Pride, and the Friends School of Atlanta as they gather to present a very special event with author and LGBT family activist Zach Wahls. It has been almost two years since Zach Wahls (then 19 years old) bravely stood up in front of the Iowa House of Representative and defended gay marriage and his family. Wahls proudly proclaimed, "The sexual orientation of my parents has had zero effect on the content of my character,” and his speech instantly went viral and became YouTube’s #1 political video of 2011.
In My Two Moms, Zach offers a stirring and brave defense of his family. Raised by two moms in a conservative Midwestern town, Zach’s parents instilled in him values that families everywhere can embrace—values driven home by his journey toward becoming an Eagle Scout. Zach’s upbringing couldn’t have been more mainstream—he played sports, was active in Boy Scouts, and led his high school speech and debate team—yet, growing up with two moms, he knows that it’s like to feel different and fear being bullied, or worse. My Two Moms also delivers a reassuring message to same-sex couples, their kids, and anyone who's ever felt like an outsider: "You are not alone."
