Today on the Signorile Show

A fascinating story on not only the dangers in trying to rescue the trapped miners in Chile, but how their relatives have been selling their stories -- and cell phone videos -- in what has become an international reality show. Lots to talk about.

Utah LGBT activists -- 4,500 by their count -- surrounded the Mormon Temple in Salt Lake City following the ugly antigay remarks of the Mormon Apostle Boyd K. Packer.

Guest / 3:30pm EST - Shane Windmeyer, Executive Director of Campus Pride, joins us today to discuss what needs to happen on college campuses to prevent another tragic story like the death of Tyler Clementi from happening again.

Guest / 4:30pm EST - Fifty years ago, Chester Burge, a wealthy slumlord and bootlegger was acquitted of murdering his wife, but was found guilty of sodomy when his chauffeur came forward and testified of their relationship and Burges secret gay life. Richard Hutto, author of A Peculiar Tribe of People: Murder and Madness in the Heart of Georgia, joins us this afternoon to talk about this tale of murder, sex and scandal.

The deadline is approaching
for the Obama administration to appeal the court decision ruling the main part of the Defense of Marriage Act unconstitutional. What will the President do? We'll get into it.

It's Friday, that means we'll be giving out our "Angel, Turkey, Gassie and Climax of the Week" Awards!
