Today on the Signorile Show

So much to get into today: It's supposed to be the gays destroying marriage, but the head of IMF -- a heterosexual philanderer and alleged rapist -- is doing a pretty good job of it, not to mention destroying the European economy and the French elections. CNN's Don Lemon comes out: We'll take your calls on what I should ask him about his coming on the show tomorrow. And the other big coming out: The owner of the Phoenix Suns, Rick Welts. Huckabee says he's not running, and Gingrich has trashed the GOP Medicare plan. The crazy rally against marriage in New York, where a preacher called for gays to die --we'll get into it. And why is Jodie Foster directing and starring in a Mel Gibson movie!???

Guest / 4:30pm EST
- Michael Schiavi, author of Celluloid Activist: The Life and Times of Vito Russo, joins us this afternoon to talk about his new book, which documents the life of film historian and activist Vito Russo, from his time speaking about The Celluloid Closet to his founding of GLAAD and ACT UP and his fight for gay rights in a time when AIDS was defining a generation.
