My Story

Growing up in conservative West Michigan, I watched lesbian and gay friends and family members struggle to be accepted and be treated equally. There are gains and losses in this fight every day, and it is vital for LGBT individuals and their straight allies to stand up and to pay attention.

An Inspirational Teenager

Zach Wahls defends gay marriage in Iowa. His thesis? His family is not different from any other family.
It truly is an inspirational video.

"The sexual orientation of my parents has had zero effects on the content of my character."


  1. oh i read about this! thanks for posting :)

  2. We were just talking about this in one of my classes today. We talked about how former President George Bush was against gay rights and all that. Whatever happened to all men being created equal? Yea, this is not in the constitution ( its in the declaration of indepence) but that does not mean that homosexuals should be considered less human! Hope to see a society someday where everyone will be judged on equal grounds!

  3. It's really pathetic that this is still a hot button issue. Everybody is different, but those differences shouldn't make someone an outcast. Differences were meant to be embraced because they make life interesting.
