Today on the Signorile Show

Guest / 2:30pm ET - Xorje Olivares of OutQ News joins us to recap the historic day yesterday in New York as it celebrated hundreds of gay and lesbian couples get married.

Guest / 3:30pm ET - This year marked the 150th anniversary of the Civil War and the 200th anniversary of the birth of Harriet Beecher Stowe, author of one of the most influential and controversial books in American history, Uncle Tom's Cabin. David Reynold's, author of Mightier Than The Sword: Uncle Tom's cabin and The Battle For America, joins us this afternoon to explore the novel's reception and how it contributed to the cultural changes our country underwent in the the 19th century.

Guest / 4:30pm ET - As we went into the weekend, we were greeted with some good news. Not only were New Yorkers getting ready to tie the knot, but the President, Defense Secretary and Chairman of the Joint Chiefs certified the implementation study of Don't Ask, Don't Tell. While this is great news for the last step in repeal, many who were discharged under DADT are still facing the downfalls of being discharged. Lt. Dan Choi, who became the face of repeal last year, returns to the program to discuss the financial impact the discharge has had on him.
