Today's Show: David Mixner Speaks Out

3:30 ET: The acclaimed author, political strategist,and gay civil rights activist David Mixner -- an advisor to President Clinton, who broke with the president over "don't ask, don't tell" -- will join me to discuss the current state of the LGBT movement. A supporter of and organizer for Barack Obama in the presidential race, he's been highly outspoken and critical of the president on LGBT rights. He's also now speaking out about the national LGBT groups. In his four part blog post, he explains why idly waiting by the side lines for the right time to strike is a big mistake. Mixner also recently called, along with Cleve Jones, for a march on Washington, which is now happening in the fall. On the show, he'll explain some of his observations and criticisms and why we have to move now.
