Beginning in the August 8th issue, Savage Love will run exclusively, and unedited, in the Pittsburgh Current.
Pittsburgh, PA, July 9th, 2018 … Renowned author and columnist Dan Savage has severed his ties with City Paper to run his column exclusively in the Pittsburgh Current. The decision came after City Paper ownership fired editor Charlie Deitch over his coverage of known homophobic state Rep Daryl Metcalfe.
“Pittsburgh Current is absolutely honored to be the new home in the city for Savage Love. Bethany and I had the chance to sit down with Dan on his recent trip to Pittsburgh and talk about the future of alt-media. It was an honor then, this is an honor now, ” said Deitch.
Deitch said a policy by his former employer to heavily edit Savage Love was a chore he was glad to leave behind. “Dan is such an important voice for sex positivity and the LGBTQIA community and his work speaks for itself. I can’t wait to let Pittsburghers read his words unfiltered as it should be.”
Savage Love will premiere in print and online editions of the Pittsburgh Current starting Aug. 15 issue of the Pittsburgh Current and will be available online and in print from that date forward.
