    Against gay marriage? Read this book

    I loved how Savage was able to put a face on gay marriage by showing his readers his family. It becomes so much harder to demonize gay people when we see who is the target of this kind of discrimination. And besides the book itself is extremely funny, witty entertaining and insightful.

    A SERIOUS GOOD TIME!

    Dan Savage's honest account of trying to marry the 'other father' of his child is funny, frustrating and most importantly filled with lots of love and laughter. It goes beyond the bounds of a gay love story and deals simply with two people attempting to justify their union in the face of a government who wants no part of them and a family who, for the most part, accepts them for what they are. That is, a couple in love with a precocious child who is wise beyond his years. After reading this book my partner of 26 years and I decided to 'make it legal' in Canada as well. Thanks, Dan!
