America's favorite sex-positive advice columnist is back in town to address the questions you could never ask your parents about sex, relationships, and being "GGG." Dan Savage began writing his "Savage Love" column for Seattle weekly The Stranger while working at Madison's Four Star Video Heaven (a friend of his both started The Stranger and co-founded the once-local but still beloved satire publication The Onion), and he still gets back here once a twice a year, for live appearances and his his amateur porn festival screening tour, HUMP!   Savage is now based in Seattle and works as the editorial director of The Stranger. He's also turned his column into a wildly successful podcast, often frequenting top 100 podcast charts.  Savage is also a renown LGBT activist, bringing to light queer issues through his podcast and festival.  He also co-founded the It Gets Better project, an online video series turned book aimed at preventing suicide among LGBT youth. Though most of his work focuses on sex and relationship advice, Savage, as with many an entertainer, has turned increasingly political under the current climate. He visits here for a live recording of the Savage Lovecast. —Caleb Oakley
