CONVENTION WATCH

Equality Advocate Zach Wahls To Speak At Democratic Convention

It’s looking like marriage equality isn’t just a plank at the Democratic National Convention, it’s the whole darn platform!

Convention speakers Michelle Obama, Rep. Jared Polis and DNC Treasurer Andrew Tobias have already addressed the issue of same-sex marriage, and tonight Zach Wahls— who moved millions with his impassioned speech to the Iowa Legislature about his two moms—will be speaking to the crowd gathered at Charlotte’s Time Warner Cable Arena. “Thrilled to announce I’ll be speaking at the #DNC12 tomorrow evening!” Wahls tweeted yesterday.

After the First Lady’s rousing address last night, Wahl’s will have his work cut out for him. But considering he brought us to tears with the last big speech he gave, we’re sure he’ll knock it out of the ballpark—er, arena.
