Dan Savage, creator of the "Savage Love" column (appearing locally in City Pages) and founder of the "It Gets Better" anti-bullying project, will bring his funny, informative and no-holds barred advice to the Minneapolis for a live event. Savage will cover a wide range of topics, including his position on Minnesota’s constitutional amendment excluding same-sex couples from marriage. He will also take questions from the audience.
Daniel Keenan Savage (born October 7, 1964) is an American author, media pundit, journalist and newspaper editor. Savage writes the internationally syndicated relationship and sex advice column "Savage Love." Its tone is frank in its discussion of sexuality, often humorous, and hostile to social conservatives, as in the Santorum controversy regarding homosexuality. As a gay man, Savage has often been the subject of controversy regarding some of his opinions that pointedly clash with cultural conservatives and those put forth by what Savage has been known to call the "gay establishment."
He has also worked as a theater director, both under his real name and under the name Keenan Hollahan, using his middle name and his grandmother's maiden name. In 2010, Savage and his husband Terry Miller began the It Gets Better Project to help prevent suicide among LGBT youth.
A limited number of VIP tickets are available for $104 and include a pre-show meet & greet with Mr. Savage.
