Dan Savage, syndicated sex-advice columnist and author of four books, makes a live appearance June 22 at the Pantages Theatre in downtown Minneapolis, just in time for Gay Pride.

 Savage, whose "Savage Love" column appears in alternative weeklies around the country (and in City Pages in the Twin Citieis) has been outspoken in defense of gay marriage, gay adoption and against school bullying.

His most recent book, “It Gets Better: Coming Out, Overcoming Bullying and Creating a Life Worth Living,” was released in 2011 and became a New York Times Bestseller. Savage created the web-based "It Gets Better" campaign in 2010 as an outlet for video testimonials giving hope to gays facing bullying or other persecution or discrimination. He is editor of The Stranger in Seattle.

Tickets go on sale at 10 a.m. on Friday, March 9. They are $43.50. Visit www.HennepinTheatreTrust.org or call 1.800.982.2787. Photo of Savage by Christopher Staton, provided by Hennepin Theatre Trust.
