I am a regular reader of Dan Savage's advice column, "Savage Love." In a town like Richmond, I'm always a little hesitant to even mention this column because it has the audacity to speak to people's kinky sexuality with compassion and deal with sexual issues bluntly and honestly. Mr. Savage is gay -- ribaldly, unrepentently, and gloriously gay -- and has a long-term boyfriend with whom he's adopted a son.
In this week's column, Mr. Savage offers two tickets to a show, kind of like I did a few days ago. The reason he makes this offer, however, is much more poignant and affecting than mine. If you are interested in two tickets to the tour of "The Drowsy Chaperone," you might want to check out his column. Or, even better, if you want to read a touching and wonderfully respectful "thank you" letter, check it out.
