Today on the Signorile Show

3:35pm ET - Last month, there was a lot of controversy made when it was found out that then-Mozilla CEO Brandon Eich had made some donations to anti-gay causes in the past, including to Proposition 8 and to Pat Buchanan's Presidential Campaign.  He resigned about a week into the controversy.  But that hasn't stopped a variety of LGBT people and allies from defending Eich against the 'intolerant" left who booted him out of his position.  John Becker, Editor-In-Chief of the Bilerico Project, joins us today to discuss Eich and why there is still a defense of him.

4:35pm ET - Despite the 2011 repeal of "Don't Ask, Don't Tell", transgender members of the armed services can still be forced out of the military based on their gender identification.  Today, we are joined by Landon Wilson, a former Information Dominance Warfare Specialist with the US Navy, who was recently sent home from Afghanistan and forced out of the Navy after his gender transformation came to the attention of his commander officers and Fiona Dawson, Host and Producer of the TransMilitary Project, which features Landon's story.
