Raybeard inspired me to post this video of a young man addressing the Iowa House of Representatives opposing Resolution 6 back in 2011. Resolution 6 would have ended civil unions in Iowa (this was before marriage equality nationwide).

This young man is Zach Wahls who is today’s Beard of the Day and newly elected State Senator in Iowa.

Congratulations Zach! Thank you for being an inspiration. Thank you for your insight and your leadership.

  1. Zach stood up when a lot of people stayed seated.
    He stood up as a young man when a lot of older folks stayed seated.
    Nice to see people in Iowa now standing for him.
    He deserves it.

  2. (Thanks for the mention, F.B.) I’m glad that I now know who this power-speaker is, and won’t forget his name – or face! – in a hurry.
