Today on the Signorile Show

3:35pm ET - In February, Djuan Trent, a former Miss Kentucky, made the decision to publicly announce that she is queer, after months of struggling with whether or not to let people know.  Since coming out publicly, she has joined Freedom To Marry's campaign "Southerners For The Freedom To Marry", which will help bring attention to the efforts to get marriage equality passed in the south and protect couples married in other states.  She joins us today to talk about those efforts.

4:35pm ET - We focus a lot on the show about issues related to the LGBT community, but many times, the B (bisexual) gets overlooked.  Benoit Denizet-Lewis, author and activist, returns to the show to discuss a piece he'd written for the New York Times Magazine, The Scientific Quest to Prove Bisexuality Exists, which looks at the activists who are trying to combat biphobia and bierasure with science.
