Dan Savage, author of the internationally syndicated relationship and sex column “Savage Love” and Editorial Director of The Stranger, and his husband Terry Miller, event promoter, musician and DJ, started It Gets Better in response to the suicides of teenagers who were bullied because they were gay or were rumored to be gay. Its goal is to prevent suicide among LGBT youth by having gay adults convey the message that these teens’ lives will improve. Their initial video has been viewed by millions and become the foundation for thousands of other videos in the still growing archive, and was responsible for both the popular website and the book of the same name, which was published in March. Join them both at Bumbershoot to discuss the It Gets Better project and the video that spawned a revolution.
