Dan Savage, editor of Seattle's The Stranger alt-weekly newspaper and the co-founder of the "It Gets Better" campaign, will speak at the University of Memphis tonight as part of "Respect Me, Don't Reject Me" week.

In 2010, Savage and his husband Terry Miller launched the "It Gets Better" video campaign, which features celebrities in a series of viral videos encouraging LGBTQ youth to stick it out and not commit suicide because life gets better as a gay adult.

Savage will speak at 7 p.m. in the U of M's Rose Theatre tonight (April 9th).

The U of M Student Activities Council-sponsored "Respect Me, Don't Reject Me" week focuses on combating bullying.
