Zach Wahls to Speak at Democratic National Convention on Thursday

Iowa City gay rights activist Zach Wahls will speak at the Democratic National Convention this week. From the Des Moines Register:
Zach Wahls, the Iowa college student who rocketed to online fame for his testimonial about being raised by two mothers, will speak Thursday at the Democratic national convention.
“I’ll be talking about love, respect and what makes a family,” he told The Des Moines Register tonight.
In February 2011, as a 19-year-old University of Iowa student, Wahls addressed the Iowa House during a public forum on a resolution calling for amending the Iowa Constitution to define marriage as between one man, one woman.
An official announcement about the speaking slot will apparently come on Wednesday. Around 9 p.m. on Tuesday, Wahls posted “Big news in the morning” on his Facebook page. Within about half an hour, the status garnered more than 150 “likes” from Wahls’ Facebook friends.
