Penn Gets Better

SPEC, in conjunction with Penn’s Center for Public Health Initiatives, wil be bringing in Dan Savage next month! Savage, author of the popular “Savage Love” column and creator of the “It Gets Better” YouTube project, will be talking about his use of socia media and how it relates to LGBT health issues among youth today.

Given that Penn is supposedly the nation’s #1 gay-friendly school and our very own Prez made her own  “It Gets Better” video, the choice of Dan Savage as speaker isn’t all that surprising, but still neato nonetheless. But wait! It gets better! Tickets to the event, held Monday, March 19th, at 8 p.m. in Zellerbach, are free. Just stop by the box office to get yours.

AWFUL! This dude is a transphobe. Let’s show up and let him know we won’t stand for his ignorance.

I need to know why you would possibly think he is transphobic, because from my experience he most definitely is not, and he is certainly not a rape apologist.
