FREE Dan Savage Reading

The Bay's best newsletter for underground events & news

What I didn’t learn about human sexuality in sex ed class, I learned from reading Savage Love. Dan Savage´s columns prepared me for any weird thing a guy might do, and taught me about warning signs in relationships. He´s been talking people through their problems with threesomes, masturbating parrots, sex toy etiquette, diaper fetishs, and even some more vanilla relationship problems for years. He even successfully started a campaign to name the frothy mixture of semen and fecal matter caused by anal sex after Rick Santorum.

But his and his partner´s It Gets Better Project has gotten him the most mainstream attention. It started as a viral video campaign offering encouragement to gay teenagers and now it´s a book. Tomorrow, they´ll be reading some of the essays at the Tribeca Barnes and Noble. It may be of your few chances to see him outside of a college speaking tour.

Kiley E - Ragamuffin Researcher

Kiley E - Ragamuffin Researcher

After years of denial, Kiley has finally admitted to baring a striking resemblance to Velma from Scooby Doo. Instead of traveling in a van hunting ghosts, she prefers wandering on foot in search of tacos, cheap beer, and fake birds. Growing up in Portland, Kiley enjoyed the balance of urban and green spaces. Then she spent her four years at Ithaca College, and found herself craving more sprawling asphalt in her life. So she moved to Williamsburg, Brooklyn, where most of the buildings look like they're about to collapse. Kiley's favorite activities include: getting lost, crafting, sewing, biking, and geeking out at museums. Her love of taxidermy probably makes her a terrible vegetarian, but she doesn't care.
