I knew there was a reason I loved Dan Savage.
Besides being one of the most reasonable and fiercest advocates for gay and lesbian rights, Savage has charisma that stretches for miles. In this new video about being bullied in high school–and the acknowledgment, many years later, of a bright present–he and his partner talk frankly about how difficult life was.
And how satisfying family life (they have a teenager named TJ) is today.
More about the “It Gets Better” Project–aimed at an audience of young gay kids who may be considering suicide–is at the newly launched YouTube channel. Good, heartfelt, stuff.
