Dan Savage

Advocate.com Editors

Seattle writer Dan Savage has penned the best book to date on why gays should be able to marry. The Commitment: Love, Sex, Marriage, and My Family (Dutton, $23.95) is, on the surface, the story of Savage and his partner, Terry, deciding whether to tie the knot. But the book also shreds the far right’s bigoted arguments against marriage equality. More important, it’s a funny, touching story of navigating family dynamics, with Dan, Terry, and young son D.J. each weighing in on the matter. In a perfect world, their story alone would open and change closed minds.
