Description: What makes a family? Zach Wahls tried to answer that question when he testified before the Iowa House Judiciary Committee in 2011. The son of two lesbian mothers, the University of Iowa engineering student had no idea that his heartfelt testimony that day would spread like viral wildfire.

Two days after he testified, a YouTube video of his testimony went viral, attracting nearly 2 million views with millions more via Facebook, Twitter, national and international television and other online media.

Wahls offers a bold perspective on an always contentious issue--gay marriage. You'll laugh, you may even cringe, and no matter your thoughts on marriage equality in our country, you'll walk away with a new perspective.
