  3. He is the face of this country's future! As more and more "young"er generation speak up and out about equality, the more this country will move forward. Without this progression, this country will not survive.

  7. A great guy and interview.
    He sits down in a discussion with his moms and sis inaugurating a new site Let'sTalk About Marriage that is aimed specifically at straight people who haven't made up their minds on marriage equality...

  8. C'mon, Ellen, stop calling him AMAZING long enough to ask him a Q or 2.

    Tell me about your favorite Halloween costume. What was your hardest merit badge? Why are you even in that anti-gay Boy Scouts?

    Oh well. Go Zach!

  10. We need all folks like this gentlemen, straight AND GAY alike running for office...city council...mayor...even President. We can't be on thesidelines any longer. To enact change is to be a part of it in a leadership role. That includes being politically active as a politician. I sincerely hope more folks in line with our equality and empowering it RUN FOR OFFICE!
