Today on the Signorile Show

"Doctor" Laura (who is no medical doctor of psychologist of any kind, but actually a phys. ed teacher) is now calling it quits, claiming her 1st amendment rights were violated. Okay, we'll have lots to say about this and take your calls.

Target has now rebuffed the Human Rights Campaign's urging the company to give an equal amount of money to a pro-gay cause as they did to antigay Republican candidate for governor. We'll speak with Fred Sainz of HRC about where the group's relationship with Target goes from here. 3:30 ET

The controversy over the Islamic center two blocks from Ground Zero continues as Republicans demonize American Muslims further. Yesterday there was lots of passion on the show -- and lots of calls from those opposed to the mosque. We'll report on the the latest and continue the discussion.

At 4:30 ET I'll interview Justin Spring, author of "Secret Historian: The Life and Times of Samuel Steward, Professor, Tatto Artist and Sexual Renegade," a fascinating look at an an interesting and little known but very influential figure in queer history.

Mary Cheney has donated 00 bucks to an anti-marriage Republican. And virulently antigay website World Net Daily has dumped Ann Coulter because she is speaking at a party of gay Republicans, who claim she's the the "right-wing Judy Garland." Okay, a lot to unpack here, and we'll do it!

All these stories and so much more, today on The Michelangelo Signorile Show!
