Zach Wahls Addresses The Democratic Convention

Over the last couple weeks, I've avoided posting much about the conventions, both Republican and Democratic (hough I was certainly tempted to post Clint Eastwood talking to an empty chair, that's for sure!). But I do want to draw your attention to the short but powerful speech of Zach Wahls. This is the young man from Iowa raised by two lesbian moms who turned out to be an Eagle scout, straight (!) and a remarkable young speaker.

I've posted about Zach before when he spoke at the GLAAD Awards here in New York. Now, with his debut speech at the Democratic Convention today, he really makes his point about the importance of family no matter what the definition of that is.  This is his first time speaking at a political convention and I doubt it will be the last.
