The speech delivered by Zach Wahls is very deep and impactful. His presentation techniques and speech skills are exceptional. This testimony is in support of LGBT equality and its purpose is to address the proposal of banning gay marriage in Iowa. He speaks clearly and projects his voice, using a variance of tone and volume. Many gestures are used to emphasize points and there are pauses for dramatic effect. The speaker is also able to hold the audience's attention by using connections that the audience can relate to.  The structure is well laid out and the speech includes many personal thoughts and experiences. What makes this speech most effective is the conclusion. The last sentence is, "the sexual orientation of my parents has had zero effect on the content of my character." This is an allusion to Martin Luther King's famous 'I Have a Dream' speech.
