Today on the Signorile Show

The Supreme Court has rejected a request to vacate the stay on "don't ask, don't tell" pending appeal. Meanwhile Cindy McCain has come out for repeal big time, connecting DADT to teen suicides and clearly going at loggerheads with her increasingly angry and absurb husband. UPDATE: Cindy McCain has now proven to be a complete hypocrite, putting out a statement about how she is standing by her crazed husband, reversing her position on DADT and saying it should not be repealed.

Guest / 2:30pm EST - We'll continue our discussion that we've been having this week about the use of the word "Tranny" and whether the use of the word shouldn't be used in pop culture or amongst the community. Yesterday GLAAD's Cindy Creiger joined us to offer GLAAD's opinion. Transgender activist Autumn Sandeen joins us this afternoon.

Guest / 3:30pm EST - While the Democrats lost the House and there was a small victory for the Tea Party this past Election Day, we can't forget that LGBT candidates had major victories across the country too. Jim Gray, who won the mayoral race in Lexington, Kentucky and is the cities first openly gay mayor, joins us today to talk about his win.

Guest / 4:30pm EST - The debate continues over the interpretations of the Constitution and what the Founding Father intended when they wrote those words "We The People." Pauline Maier, author of Ratification: The People Debate The Constitution 1787-1788, talks with us about her new book that gives us an idea about the early debates this country had over how to govern a new country.

We'll go through listener surveys!

And it's Friday, who or what will get our "Angel, Turkey, Gassie and Climax of the Week" Award?!
