Today on The Michelangelo Signorile Show on SiriusXM PROGRESS ch.127

This June, we celebrate Pride Month and the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall riot—a key moment in LGBTQ activism and history. Three activists join me today to talk all about LGBTQ activism then and now—founder of the first NYC Pride march Mark Segal, transgender activist and veteran Monica Helms and media director of NYC Pride James Fallarino.

This sure has been another crazy week in politics what with Trump saying if Russia again offered campaign help he would take it, new votes to hold White House administration officials in contempt, and more.  Joining me today to help us wrap up the week in politics is Eleanor Clift the Washington correspondent for The Daily Beast, where she covers the White House and writes about politics and culture.  

Former Texas Rep. Beto O’Rourke brought a wave of progressive energy to Texas with his senate bid last year. Now, he’s running for president, traveling the country and sharing his vision for the future, including his new LGBTQ policy proposals. He joins me on the show today to talk all about his campaign.

Southwestern Texas congressional district 23 stretches from western San Antonio to just outside El Paso. Democratic Party candidate Gina Ortiz Jones could become the first Iraq War veteran, first Filipina-American and first out-lesbian to represent Texas in Congress if she can unseat three-term incumbent Will Hurd.

This sure has been another crazy week in politics what with more Democratic Representatives calling for impeachment, job numbers declining and Trump’s battle over tariffs on Mexico.  Joining me today to help us wrap up the week in politics is Eleanor Clift the Washington correspondent for The Daily Beast, where she covers the White House and writes about politics and culture.
