Dan Savage’s The Kid and 5 Other Gay Memoirs That Went Big

If you hadn’t heard, Dan Savages’ gay adoption memoir The Kid: What Happened After My Boyfriend And I Decided To Get Pregnant is now an Off-Broadway musical. Even though the NY Daily News called the musical “a boring baby that needs to grow up” we haven’t snagged a ticket just yet. So while waiting for the box office to open we found five other gay memoirs adapted for stage and film. They’re crawling with bisexual Berliners, hateful elves, and gaylebrity gossip. But even better, if you don’t wanna read the originals, you can always just watch them in a theatre. It’s CliffsNotes for the cultured set.
