Iowa Dads Speak Out for Equality

Here in Iowa, we know that our dads are the best, but we wanted to share these incredible fathers with the world.

We sat down with 10 dads across the state from all different backgrounds. We spoke with grandfathers, and new dads, gay dads and straight allies, dads from Northwest Iowa and dads from Des Moines! And they all had one thing in common: They all support equality for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) people.

Check out these ten proud fathers as they talk about the joys of fatherhood and their vision for a future that includes equality for all families.
