Today On The Signorile Show!

3:35pm ET - Last month, Zack Ford, the editor of ThinkProgress LGBT received an email from the National Organization for Marriage (NOM) inviting him to the Heritage Foundation for a screening of Rick Santorum’s new “docudrama,” One Generation Away: The Erosion of Religious Liberty.  He joins us today to tell us about the film and to discuss his recent twitter battle with Ryan T. Anderson of the Heritage Foundation over Ryan's insistence that religious agencies that receive state funding/subsidies deserve the "right" to enjoy this benefit while also discriminating against loving and capable tax-paying adoptive parents who happen to be of the same-sex. You can also follow Zack on twitter.

4:35pm ET -  On July 17th Malaysian Airlines Flight MH17 was shot down over Ukraine by pro-Russian separatists and among the nearly 300 people on-board the plane that day were many prominent HIV/AIDS researchers and advocates who were on their way to the biennial International AIDS Conference.  Joining us today in studio to discuss the impact the loss of these lives will have on the HIV/AIDS and scientific community is Sean Strub, writer, activist, founder of POZ Magazine, and the executive director of the Sero Project, who was at the Conference in Melbourne, Australia when the news of the disaster hit.
