The Michelangelo Signorile Show on SiriusXM PROGRESS ch.127

During last night’s Democratic presidential debate on MSNBC, Sec. Hillary Clinton was asked if she would release the transcripts of her paid speeches, in response she said that she would “look in to it”.  However, this was not the first time she was asked this question, two weeks ago in Manchester, New Hampshire investigative journalist Lee Fang of The Intercept also asked her the question, and on that occasion her answer was very different.  Lee joins me today to talk all about the money that Sec. Clinton made from paid speeches and the calls for her to release the transcripts.  You can also follow Lee on twitter.

When Louis Vuitton announced that 17-year old male actor Jaden Smith would be the new face of its womenswear campaign, some people credited the young man for being a fashion “trailblazer,” however the reaction on social media wasn’t so positive. Online, he was called him a “young confused man,” with some people going so far as to claim that his clothing choices are an insult to black masculinityThis reaction seems to be very different from the one received by other young female celebrities like Miley Cyrus and Ruby Rose who have also expressed their own complicated relationship with gender, which according to my guest Nico Lang shows that gender fluidity in our society has a toxic masculinity problem.  Nico joins me today in studio to talk all about the varying levels of acceptance for gender fluid men and women in society.
