On February 15th, author and activist Dan Savage will be joining our class for a discussion of his It Gets Better Project. Dan Savage is the creator and author of the syndicated relationship and sex advice column Savage Love. In September 2010, he and his partner Terry posted a YouTube video (below) in response to a number of news stories about LGBT youth taking their lives after being bullied. Over 10,000 others have posted similar videos encouraging LGBT youth as a part of the It Gets Better Project.
Please take some time to look into the It Gets Better Project and Dan Savage's other works in preparation for his visit to our class.
