Today on the Signorile Show

Guest / 2:30pm EST - We'll speak with LaWana Mayfield, who is the first lesbian elected to the city council in Charlotte, North Carolina, about her win and what she sees is the future for the LGBT community in North Carolina.

Guest / 3:30pm EST - John Waters has been an iconic filmmaker, with works like Pink Flamingos and Hairspray influencing the culture and challenging the mainstream, for over 40 years. James Egan is a filmmaker, founder of the Wild At Heart Films production company and editor of a John Waters Interviews, which is a collection of interviews Waters gave from 1965-2010. He joins us today to discuss this collection.

Guest / 4:30pm EST - Jose Antonio Vargas is an award winning journalist, covering some important events over the past few years and interviewing some very powerful and influential figures. He's also openly gay and an undocumented immigrant. Over the summer, he wrote a piece in the New York Times Magazine, discussing the secret he'd kept since he was 16 years old and why there needs to be legislation like the DREAM Act passed to benefit the children of immigrants, not punish them. He'll join us to talk about his new campaign, Define American.

It's Friday! Who will get our "Angel, Turkey, Gassy and Climax of the Week" Awards?!
