Charis and Atlanta Pride Present Zach Wahls at the Friends School of Atlanta

Event date: 
Thursday, June 27, 2013 - 11:00pm

Kick off Stonewall Weekend with Charis Books, Atlanta Pride, and the Friends School of Atlanta as they gather to present a very special event with author and LGBT family activist Zach Wahls.

It has been almost two years since Zach Wahls (then 19 years old) bravely stood up in front of the Iowa House of Representative and defended gay marriage and his family. Wahls proudly proclaimed, "The sexual orientation of my parents has had zero effect on the content of my character,” and his speech instantly went viral and became YouTube’s #1 political video of 2011.

In My Two Moms, Zach offers a stirring and brave defense of his family. Raised by two moms in a conservative Midwestern town, Zach’s parents instilled in him values that families everywhere can embrace—values driven home by his journey toward becoming an Eagle Scout. Zach’s upbringing couldn’t have been more mainstream—he played sports, was active in Boy Scouts, and led his high school speech and debate team—yet, growing up with two moms, he knows that it’s like to feel different and fear being bullied, or worse. My Two Moms also delivers a reassuring message to same-sex couples, their kids, and anyone who's ever felt like an outsider: "You are not alone."

This all-ages event is co-sponsored by Charis Circle's From Margin to Center Literary Program. The suggested donation is $5, but no one will be turned away.

Thank you to our program partners: Atlanta Pride and the Friends School of Atlanta.  

Books and signing provided by Charis Books and More. 

This event will take place in the Friends School Sanctuary located at 862 Columbia Drive, Decatur, GA 30030. Parking at the school and adjacent lots is free. 

The space is wheel chair accessible. Event will be ASL interpreted.
