Today on The Michelangelo Signorile Show on SiriusXM PROGRESS ch.127

3:35pm ET - Back on April 2, Gov. Mike Pence of Indiana attempted to sweep under the rug the controversy that had brought national scorn upon his state and cost its local economies valuable tourism dollars, by signing a revised version of the states widely denounced "religious freedom" law or RFRA.  And since that time, the governor has tried to stay out of the spotlight and keep his head down, but behind the scenes in Indiana, many Republicans are still fuming and looking for ways to take him down and gain control of the party. Furthermore, as a result of his decision to sign this piece of hate legislation into law the Republican led government of the state has had to spend $2 million of tax payer money to bring in a public relations firm to help rebuild Indiana's image in the wake of the RFRA fiasco. Joining us today to talk all about how no one in Indiana these days is happy with Gov. Mike Pence is Amanda Terkel the Senior Political Reporter and Politics Managing Editor at The Huffington Post.

4:35pm ET - Joining me today in studio is Brad Gooch to discuss his new memoir Smash Cut: A Memoir of Howard &Art & the ‘70s & the ‘80s which details his life in the New York art scene and love affair with filmmaker Howard Brookner whose life and career were tragically cut short as were so many of his generation in 1989 as result of AIDS.  The memoir illustrates the challenges that many LGBT faced during this time, and provides reflection on how that plague ravaged a generation and forever transformed the creative world.
