Iowa Student's Pro-Gay Marriage Speech Goes Viral Again

Published:

An Iowa student's profound pro-gay parenting, pro-marriage equality speech has gone viral -- for the second time -- 11 months after it first exploded on the Internet.

Though Zach Wahls, 19, made the moving testimony in front of the Iowa House of Representatives back in February, the video has re-surfaced in the blogosphere now after being posted on MoveOn.org's website yesterday.

The clip is sweeping Twitter and Facebook all over again as many find it just as inspirational now as they did in February due to the continuing debates about same-sex marriage and gay parenting in the United States.

"I guess the point is that our family isn't so different than any other Iowa family," he says in the clip. "When I'm home, we go to church together, we eat dinner, we go on vacations."

After acknowledging his family's usual set of struggles, he went on to note, "We're Iowans, we don't expect anyone to solve our problems for us, we'll fight our own battles. We just hope for equal and fair treatment from our government."
