WATCH: Dan Savage Gets His Marriage License In Washington State
Lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) rights advocate Dan Savage was among the first in his home state of Washington to receive a marriage license just hours after Gov. Chris Gregoire signed the voter-approved law allowing same-sex couples to wed.
"If you had told me when I was coming out when I was a teenager that a time would come when a majority in a state...would vote to endorse marriage equality, would vote to extend marriage rights to same-sex couples, I wouldn't have believed you," a glowing Savage said after receiving the certificate with his husband Terry Miller.
"It's gotten better for us because straight people have gotten better about us."
CORRECTION: An earlier version of this article referred to Savage and Miller as having "tied the knot." In fact, they only received the marriage certificate.

Isn't he the guy who was born in like 1933 and claims he's 33 years old?

His betrothed must be a saint.

Doesn't seem very loving and affectionate, more like a raw political action.

Didn't he already get married in Canada? Guess the waning headlines has left him desperate for attention.

All of the preceding posts could be seen at FreeRepublic on the same story.
It's depressing how homophobic this website has become.

"I, Terry, take thee, Dan, to love and to cherish, though sometimes I will leave thee in the middle of brunch to sneak off to have sex with a hot waiter in the restroom..."
Vows that really mean something.

"bisexual and transgender (LGBT) rights advocate."
I see Savage is posting here again at R5. Have the balls to at least post your name.

Dan Savage is an essentialist who thinks that gay men are a profoundly different species from straight men. He is wrong.

Shotgun wedding. Miller is knocked up.

Fuck this racist, opportunistic piece of shit. And, preemptive: That's enough, Charlie.

Don't worry, Terry. It gets better. (Although probably not, in this casse.)

Never forget: Dan was so upset over Prop 8 passing in California that he vowed to launch a boycott... so he tried to get gays to boycott Utah, because the Mormon church poured money into Prop 8.
Why a state where most people had nothing to do with it? Because he was working on a TV deal in California.

He is also responsible for..."a frothy mixture of fecal-matter and lube,usually the by.product of anal sex",as the first hit from a Google search for "Santorum"! For this alone I respect him.

I always found it strange that Savage would want to permanently associate not only Santorum but himself the yuckiest aspect of anal sex.

Why would anyone want to marry him? Some of his advice in his column is actually good, but I'd imagine him to be impossible to live with.

He manipulated the Google search after Santorum compared homosexuality to bestiality.

Someone not gay, right, R8?

Terry is a loser who refuses to work so of course he'd put up with Dan's antics.
