Today on The Signorile Show!

3:35pm ET - Andy Marra never had bad luck with dates or flings, especially with the kinds of men whom she described as looking good on paper… There was the corporate lawyer, the investment banker, the diplomat, the doctor, and the congressional aide, but these successful, desirable bachelors were often terrified to go any further than a few dates with a transgender woman like Andy.  But all that changed when she met Drew, who helped her truly accept that she is loveworthy, and deserving of being loved for all of who she is.  She joins us today to discuss her recent piece in HuffPost Gay Voices about her relationship and the problems faced by transgender people while trying to find love.  You can also follow Andy on twitter.

4:35pm ET - Many workers long for the sense of security that only an old-fashioned pension can provide, and the big insurance companies have started to capitalize on this.   Many of them are offering new ways for investors to buy and build a pension on their own, and more than a dozen companies have recently begun pitching products, known as deferred-income annuities, that allow individuals to buy the income themselves: by paying a lump sum to an insurer, or by making a series of payments over time, in exchange for a guaranteed paycheck for life that begins several years later.  Joining us to explain these deferred-income annuities is Tara Siegel Bernard a personal finance reporter for The New York Times.  You can also follow Tara on twitter.
