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

On Friday night, at a rally in Altoona, Pa. Donald Trump told the audience that the only way Hillary Clinton could win the state was if "in certain sections of the state they cheat." He then went on to encourage his supporters to “not just vote on the 8th,” but to also “go around and look and watch other polling places and make sure that it's 100 percent fine,” which amounts to what some observers such as Ari Berman of The Nation say are calls for voter intimidation and suppression.  Ari joins me on the show today to talk all about Trump’s claims of widespread voter fraud and the Republican Party’s history of trying to deny the right to vote to America’s minority communities.  

Earlier this month, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention released the results of the first nationally representative study on the health risks faced by American lesbian, gay, and bisexual high school students; and according to the report when it comes to depression, bullying and many types of violence these students are at a far greater risk then their straight peers.  Joining me today to talk all about the study, the multiple risk factors that place youth at risk for violence, and what can be done to protect them from violence is Dr. Debra Houry the Director of the National Center for Injury Prevention and Control at Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
