Gay couple Justin Moore and Nick Grant, who have huge followings on YouTube and Instagram, are deploying their popularity to promote political awareness.

The two, plus a diverse group of young people, recently interviewed Democratic National Committee chairman Tom Perez about the midterm election, the Democratic Party platform, and the party's IWillVote campaign.

"America's youth are leading the conversation about creating change and getting involved like never before," said Lucas Acosta, DNC director of LGBTQ media. "They're organizing marches and rallies across the country and showing up to demand action from their elected officials. And more and more, they're making the decision to take matters into their own hands and run for office themselves.

Watch part 1 of the group's interview with Perez below. Parts 2 and 3 will be posted in the next few days.
