Former University of Iowa student and Daily Iowan columnist Zach Wahls will serve as acting co-head for "The Outspoken Generation," the Family Equality Council's national youth advocacy initiative for young adults raised by LGBT parents, according to a press release by the group.

Wahls spoke in front of the Iowa Judiciary Committee last year about marriage equality and being raised by two mothers. A video of the speech became the top politcal viral video of 2011.

The program is discussing possible panel discussions, panel appearances, and policy briefings with partner organizations across the country.

Wahls will release his first book, My Two Moms, in late April.
