WATCH: Dan Savage Explains How His Son “Came Out As Straight”

Screen shot 2013-05-28 at 2.54.33 PMCanadian news source Xtra! has released the rest of the footage from that teaser interview with Dan Savage we showed you earlier this month. From his husband’s rump to his 15-year-old son’s sexuality, no topic is off limits while on tour promoting his latest book, American Savage: Insights, Slights, and Fights on Faith, Sex, Love, and Politics.

When asked what advice he could give to gay couples yearning for parenthood, Savage says “remember when you have a baby or adopt a baby that one day that baby will be 15 years old.”

He even shared the adorable details of his son’s “coming out” as a straight man:

“My son had to come out to us as straight, and he was worried what we might think… Even with all the support we gave him to be whatever he wants to be, he felt allegiance to us and allegiance to his family, and thought we would be disappointed that he wouldn’t be gay like us. He felt awkward coming out to us as straight, and it kinda broke our hearts.”

Kids say the darndest things!
