National speaker and author, Zach Wahls, will be making a stop at Moraine Park Technical College's Fond du Lac campus on Thursday, April 11 at 2 p.m. The event is free and open to the public.
The son of two lesbian mothers and University of Iowa engineering student had no idea his heartfelt testimony before the Iowa Legislature last year would spread like viral wildfire and even land him on The Ellen DeGeneres Show. Wahls shares a story that has never before been told, and offers a fresh, bold perspective on the issue of gay marriage. The event is sponsored by the Fond du Lac Student Senate.
Just two days after Wahls testified during that hearing, a YouTube video of his testimony went viral, garnering nearly two million views will millions more via Facebook, Twitter, national and international television, and other online media. After appearing on numerous television programs and his testimony airing on MSNBC, ABC, CBS and CNN, Wahls found himself working on a book and has now penned the game-changing college and university lecture, What Makes a Family?
A question and answer session with Wahls will follow his presentation.
Pre-registration for the event is appreciated. Contact Sam Saeger at email@example.com; or call 924-3101.
