Like it or not children are being raised by gay and lesbian parents all over America - as many as 10 million children. And it does nothing to make their lives more stable and secure to attack their families, to attack their parents to prevent us from marrying each other.
Dan Savage
I didn't want kids to think that to be happy, they had to be famous or rich or live in the big city.
Dan Savage
I'm allergic to dogs, so I couldn't even adopt what gay men typically adopt when they have that maternal gene.
Dan Savage

Dan Savage

Dan Savage
One man's blasphemy doesn't override other people's free-speech rights, their freedom to publish, freedom of thought.
Dan Savage
Really, when it comes to gay rights, there's two wars going on. The first war is political. But the culture war is over.
Dan Savage
A lot of people are living their lives online in much more public ways with Facebook and Twitter.
Dan Savage
Straight couples don't have to be monogamous to be married or married to be monogamous. Monogamy no more defines marriage than the presence of children does. Monogamy isn't compulsory and its absence doesn't invalidate a marriage.
Dan Savage
I think the best thing for you to do is just live your life. Live a life that's worth living, one where you do what you want to do, pursue your passions. That way, if you meet someone, they'll be joining a life that's already really good.
Dan Savage
When I was in high school I got involved in the fringe theater scene in Chicago, and I met some openly gay people. I could see that it got better, that they were happy and loved and supported. I saw with my own eyes that it got better.
Dan Savage
