On April 26, Zach Wahl’s new book “My Two Moms: Lessons of Love, Strength, and What Makes a Family” hits bookstores. With a written introduction by talk show host Ellen DeGeneres, the story gives Wahl’s personal account of being raised by his two lesbian moms, Jackie Reger and Terry Wahls.
Zach Wahls is no stranger to the public. For the past year, Wahls has attracted national attention, most notably for his poignant speech to Iowa lawmakers in Jan. 2011. The 19-year-old Wahls, in an effort to discourage Iowa from banning gay marriage, praised the parenting efforts of his two mothers. Eloquent and straight from the heart, Wahls touched the hearts of many Americans that day with his words. Through the help of YouTube, his video reached over 18 million viewers.
