Author Info

Dan Perdios has been a civil rights activist since he was 19 in the days of Harvey Milk and the gay rights movement. When the AIDS epidemic raged it was an easy shift to AIDS activism. Dan attributes his survival during this unimaginable pandemic to the love and loyalty of his dogs. Specifically, Golden Retrievers. His first, Nicholas, came into his life as a golden ball of fur. Willy, the co-star of  A Golden Retriever and His Two Dads arrived in 1996. His current Golden, Morgan, was a one year old rescued dog. The love for his dogs opened him up to a deep appreciation for nature and the great outdoors. For the last thirty years, Dan and his Goldens have returned to Cape Cod in the summer to reconnect with his large extended family and to explore the beauty of the Cape and the Islands.

Dan is an extensively published PEN Grant award-winning journalist. His articles have appeared in magazines and newspapers such as: We The People, The Press Democrat, the Bay Area Reporter, the Russian River Times, the Desert Times, In LA Magazine, and The Desert Sun.

In the last few years Dan has taken his love of nature and his dogs a step further. Now his passion lies with the animal rights movement. His articles have appeared in Bay Woof and The Dodo – an online magazine about animals. He believes animal rights is the new gay rights. He recently bought his first vegan belt and is moving more and more to an animal free diet.
