Today on The Signorile Show

We'll be discussing and taking calls on Constance McMillen, an 18-year-old lesbian high school student, who was planning to take her girlfriend to her senior prom. The problem: Itawamba County School District officials have canceled the prom to prevent her from going. The ACLU has filed a lawsuit on behalf of Ms. McMillen. Follow her fight on Facebook.

What does the downfall of the White House social secretary tell us about the Obama administration, who Barack Obama surrounded himself with and why the White House and Democrats are in trouble? Plenty, and we'll get into it.

Guest 3:30 ET: Earlier this week, Utah Governor Gary Herbert signed into law a controversial bill which would charge pregnant women with murder for having "intentional or knowing" miscarriages. Melissa Bird, Executive Director of the Planned Parenthood Action Council in Utah joins us this afternoon to discuss the harm this bill could cause to the women of Utah.

Guest 4:30 Et: Last week, we told you about California State Senator Roy Ashburn's arrest for a DUI after leaving Faces, a popular Sacramento gay bar. Earlier this week, he came out of on the air to a conservative radio show. Openly gay mayor of West Sacramento, Christopher Cabaldon, joins us to talk about how he'd already known of Ashburn's homosexuality and how he's been speaking up about it for months.

Sponsors of the Stars on Ice Tour, are prohibiting Johnny Weir, 3 time US National Champion and 2 time Olympian, from joining the tour because they feel he isn't "family friendly." Is this an attack on his sexual orientation, a subject he has never really been clear about? We'll discuss.

And it's Friday, so that means Clips Of The Week!
