Today on the Signorile Show

Guest / 3:30pm EST - Faraz Sanei with the Middle East and African Division of the Human Rights Watch, joins us this afternoon to discuss a study the organization released last month, We Are A Buried Generation, which focuses on the discrimination and violence against sexual minorities in Iran as well as discuss the potential stoning of two young men who were allegedly accused of video taping the rape of another man and how this is commonplace among this discrimination.

Guests / 4:30pm EST - We'll speak with Joe Kofler and Kelly Egan, two Valley Stream South, Long Island high school seniors who, after months of hurdles and refusal by their principal, Maureen Henry, who said she didn't mean anything bad calling people "faggot," finally got approval from their superintendent to start a Gay-Straight Alliance Program in their high school.

We spoke a lot about a caller, Rita from Memphis, this week. We'll bring back a blast from the past, when we replay our phone call with Deborah from Atlanta from 2007!

It's Friday, that means we'll be giving out our "Angel, Turkey, Gassy and Climax of the Week" awards!

And, don't forget, you can follow me on Twitter and Facebook!
