Dan Savage Explains Why Kids Need To Know 'It Gets Better'

Filed under: Gay Gay GayInspirationYouTubeLGBT

Why is it so important for gay teenagers to hear stories from gay adults?

To save lives!

The harsh reality of today's society is that LGBT teens are bullied, teased, and made outsiders because of something as insignificant as sexual orientation.

Unfortunately, it took a string of sad, sad suicides to bring attention to this reality, but these tragedies finally encouraged people like Dan Savage and his husband Terry to say ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!

Since the media spotlight on LGBT teen suicides, the "It Gets Better" campaign has been using the internet as a medium for gay adults to share their own experiences with gay teenagers in hopes of preventing anymore unnecessary deaths.

Watch the video above to see sex columnist Dan Savage explain why kids NEED TO KNOW that it gets better and how the internet can save lives.

Dan Savage's Late Night MTV Show Gets The Green Light!

Filed under: MTVReality TV

dan savage late night show gets green light

Back in January, we heard that The Onion advice columnist/contributor Dan Savage, who was also a major part of the MTV special for the It Gets Better Project, was getting his own MTV pilot called Savage Love.

Now, we're hearing that Savage's MTV show has officially been given the green light, and it will now be called Savage U.

Here's what MTV's head of production Chris Linn had to say about it:

"I don’t think there are any networks talking to teenagers about how to navigate sex and modern relationships. There’s been a real leap forward in information online and the way teens communicate and Dan is somebody who brings real credibility.”

Congratulations, Dan!

As we said back in January, we're excited to see what Mr. Savage will do with his own show.

Will U tune in for Dan Savage's new late night show on MTV?

The New Dr. Drew? Dan Savage Gets New MTV Show!

Filed under: MTVReality TV

dan-savage-own-show.jpg

We hope so! We think he gives very good advice and we certainly like what he stands for.

Dan Savage is best known as an advice columnist and a contributor to The Onion. You may also remember him from the special MTV did on the It Gets Better Project, as Dan was a major element to its success.

Having seen what he can do already, MTV has ordered a pilot called Savage Love, in which Dan would be the star. Cameras are slated to follow Dan as he tours college campuses, taking questions from students about sex and relationships. His advice can be brutally honest, which we imagine the network sees as a bankable attribute and Dan doesn't shy away from being a bit graphic when talking about sex.

Pair this with Skins and you've got one hell of a lineup on Monday nights. (The PTC's heads will explode!)

We'd love to see what he would do with his own show. He's definitely a personality.

Think U would watch his show?

So Sad

Filed under: Icky Icky PooGay Gay GayPolitikSad SadLGBT

When you hear the facts straight up like this, it truly is devastating.

Check out (above) a CNN interview with Dan Savage, the creator of the 'It Gets Better' campaign, in which he discusses the reality that the LGBT community is the most targeted minority for violent acts and discrimination, and what he thinks needs to be done to help the escalating situation!

We agree with everything he has to say!

We are HUMAN BEINGS, and we deserve the same rights as EVERYONE ELSE!

The time for change is NOW.
