Zach Wahls, a 21-year-old gay rights activist raised by lesbian parents, addressed the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte, N.C. on Thursday evening.
“Governor Romney says he’s against same-sex marriage because every child deserves a mother and a father,” Wahls said. “I think every child deserves a family as loving and committed as mine. Because the sense of family comes from the commitment we make to each other to work through the hard times so we can enjoy the good ones.”
