Today on the Signorile Show

Back after a day off on Friday (under the weather) and so much going on. We'll get into the controversy over Tracy Morgan's antigay rant, as I speak with Kevin Rogers, the man who went public about what he heard in that auditorium in Nashville. Also, blogger and activist Rod McCollum joins me to discuss how it plays out when a black comic makes antigay comments and the most visible voices speaking out are white activists, while some black public figures (in this case CNN's Roland Martin and, initially Chris Rock) support him. A lot to think about and talk about.

Kevin Rogers joins me at 2:30 ET, and Rod McCollum at 3:30 ET.

Also a big week for marriage equality, with a possible vote in New York. Will the Empire State make history, becoming the largest state in the union to led gays and lesbians wed? Paul Schindler from Gay City News joins me to discuss it.

And of course, more on Anthony Weiner's fate and the Democratic leadership caves in and shamefully calls for him to resign. And speaking of resignations, will Jarrett Barrios, the president of GLAAD, resign amid the recent controversies. We'll update you on the latest.

Don't forget, you can follow me on Twitter and Facebook!
