Today on the Signorile Show

Guest / 2:30pm EST - We've been focusing a lot on ENDA and the push coming from activists for legislators in Washington to get this passed.  Senate Tom Harkin of Iowa has said the Employment Non-Discrimination Act could be before the HELP Committee by July.  Is that where we need to be with ENDA?  Tico Almeida, President of Freedom to Work, returns to the show to update us on ENDA.

Guest / 3:30pm EST - Chris Richey, President of The Stigma Project, recently wrote a piece for The Advocate that looks at the stigma that Hollywood has attached to HIV+ people, linking it to a punishment for a character who may have committed adultery.  He joins us today to talk about why this stigma continues today.

Guest / 4:30pm EST - Michele Bachmann announced she's not running for re-election.  While it's great news for us, what does this mean for comedy?  Lizz Winstead, author of Lizz Free or Die,  returns to the show to tell us her thoughts on Bachmann's downfall.
