Today on the Signorile Show

Yesterday was such a stellar show, with Dan Savage in studio and MSNBC's openly gay anchor Thomas Roberts, and then all the passionate talk about the iPhone "ex-gay" app -- which now appears to have been pulled by Apple -- but another full plate today.

First off, that Ex-App:
What happened to the Exodus International app and did Apple finally see the light after 140,000 people signed a petition? No word yet from Apple, but we'll talk about whether or not it was the right thing to do -- lots of discussion on our Facebook page and on twitter.

The continued intervention in Libya, showing more confusion among the allies and not causing Ghaddafi to budge from power. A lot more questions about the end-game and just who is in charge.

Also, kids on planes: More calls by airline travelers to offer "family-only" cabins and flights, or "adult-only" ones. We've all had the kid banging on our seat or running up and down the aisle making havoc. But should they be segregated? USA Today has a lengthy piece on this and overweight passengers -- we'll open it up to the phones.

And of course we look back on the life of the legendary actress and AIDS activist Elizabeth Taylor. William Mann, author of How To Be A Movie Star: Elizabeth Taylor In Hollywood, joins us at 2:30pm EST to talk about the alluring life of this influential star.

Guest 3:30pm EST - Robert Epstein, award winning director of The Times Of Harvey Milk, joins us this afternoon to talk about the re-release of this groundbreaking documentary that captured the atmosphere of the time and influence Harvey Milk had on not only the San Francisco LGBT community, but on the nation as well.

Guest / 4:30pm EST - Immigration lawyer Lavi Soloway joins us this afternoon to talk about Monica Alcota, a citizen of Argentina and Cristina Ojeda, a US citizen, who have requested an Immigration Judge terminate deportation proceedings so they could pursue a marriage-based green card without fear of deportation. This is the first time a married same-sex couple will appear in court to seek termination of such proceedings since the Obama administration reversed it position on Section 3 of DOMA.
