Dan Savage and Anthony Rapp Make Chicago Proud

Chicago’s always had an active queer community. In fact — many of your favorite LGBTQ celebrities hail from the Windy City! Here are just two of our favorites — let us know your favorite queer Chicagoans!

Dan Savage — Writer & Activist

Writer, author, journalist and activist are just a few of the things Dan Savage does for a living. He’s the writer of the amazing sex-advice column “Savage Love”, he created the It Gets Better Project alongside his (sexy) husband Terry Miller, and he’s executive producer of ABC’s sitcom The Real O’Neals.

Terry says let it grow… but I dunno…

And did I mention that Dan’s husband is one sexy man? Just look at his Instagram…

Anthony Rapp — Actor & Singer

You’ll probably remember him from his role as Mark Cohen in the film version of Rent, but Rapp’s also been in musicals like You’re a Good Man Charlie Brown and If/Then.
