Video: Zach Wahls discusses his two moms, ‘lessons of love’

Sunday, May 13, 2012

NEW YORK — In The Life Media celebrates Mother’s Day with the release of “My Two Moms,” a web short video featuring Zack Wahls, the son of lesbian moms whose passionate speech to the Iowa House of Representatives in support of marriage equality went viral on YouTube, capturing the attention of the country.

Wahls joins In The Life Media to discuss his experience as a child of two moms, how he’s adjusting to life in the spotlight, and his new book, “My Two Moms: Lessons of Love, Strength and What Makes a Family.”

“My hope for the book is to show people that this is just a portrait of another American family,” says Wahls, “that is just as valid as any other American family.”


On Wednesday, May 16, In The Life Media will host an hour-long online forum bginning at 2:30 p.m. ET, for LGBT parents and their children.

The panel will include Wahls, Equality Florida Executive Director and mom Nadine Smith, Mombian Editor Dana Rudolph and Dr. Abbie Goldberg, Assistant Professor of Psychology at Clark University and author of the book, “Lesbian and Gay Parents and Their Children.”

You can join the discussion by sharing your comments, questions, or posting a special Mother’s Day message for your lesbian mom(s).

  3. This is awesome! I want my child to be raised by two people that love her so much and are supportive of her instead of being in an abusive environment.
