Today on the Signoirle Show

Guest / 2:30pm EST - Joe Jervis of Joe.My.God. returns to the program to talk about the headlines making stories in the LGBT blog-o-sphere.

Guest / 3:30pm EST - Every year, we hear more and more stories of states enacting "Voter ID Laws" in order to prevent voter fraud and to make voting more effective.  Many of the states that are enactiong these laws are also swing states, which if enactied, would actually deny many eligible residents of the states to exercise thie right to vote.  Vic Walczak, Legal Director with the ACLU of Pennsylvania, who is fighting one of those battles, joins me to talk about the dangers of these laws.

Guest / 4:30pm EST - This year, the National Lesbian and Gay Journalist Association was invited to attend a much larger conference, joining several other minority groups for the Unity Journalist Convention.  It was a successful convention, but like anything, it was met with some controversy.  Steven Thrasher, staff writer with The Village Voice and NLGJA Journalist of the Year 2012 Award, returns to the show today to talk about the controversy.
