The American author Dan Savage (born 1964) has written six books, op-ed pieces in The New York Times, and an advice column on sexual issues in The Stranger (an alternative newspaper from Seattle, Washington).[1][2][3] A graduate of the University of Illinois at Urbana–Champaign,[1] Savage began contributing a column, Savage Love, to The Stranger from its inception in 1991.[4][5][6] By 1998 his column had a readership of four million.[7] He was Associate Editor at the newspaper from 1991 to 2001, when he became its editor-in-chief,[2] later becoming its editorial director in 2007.[8]

Savage's books have had successful sales results and have been generally well received. Savage Love: Straight Answers from America's Most Popular Sex Columnist was published in 1998 and features selections from his advice column.[9][10] His next book The Kid: What Happened After My Boyfriend and I Decided to Go Get Pregnant was published in 1999, and recounts his experiences with his boyfriend whilst deciding to adopt a child.[11] The book received a PEN West Award for Excellence in Creative Nonfiction,[1][12][13] and an Off-Broadway musical based on the work was the recipient of the BMI Foundation Jerry Bock Award for Excellence in Musical Theatre.[14] Skipping Towards Gomorrah: The Seven Deadly Sins and the Pursuit of Happiness in America, published in 2002, describes the author's experiences indulging in the seven deadly sins.[15] The book was featured in The Best American Sex Writing 2004,[16] and won a Lambda Literary Award.[1][17]

Savage's 2005 book The Commitment: Love, Sex, Marriage, and My Family, recounting his personal experience deciding to marry his partner Terry Miller and analyzing same-sex marriage,[18] reached The New York Times Best Seller list,[19] and Nielsen BookScan noted it sold approximately 300,000 copies.[20] After founding the It Gets Better Project in 2010 to reach out to teenagers after incidents of suicide among LGBT youth,[21] his edited compilation of submissions It Gets Better: Coming Out, Overcoming Bullying, and Creating a Life Worth Living was published in 2011.[22] The book features notable contributors, including David Sedaris, Hillary Clinton, and Barack Obama.[22] Sales of the book were successful, and IndieBound reported it reached a list of best-sellers in the United States less than one week after publication.[23][24] It reached 16th on The New York Times Best Seller list in April 2011.[25] Savage collaborated with Lindy West, Christopher Frizzelle, and Bethany Jean Clement on a college guide, How to Be a Person, which was published in 2012.[26] His 2013 book American Savage reflects on Savage's experiences throughout the founding of the It Gets Better Project and was well received by The Washington Post and the Seattle Post-Intelligencer.[27][28]
