Today on the Signorile Show

Guest / 2:30pm EST - Today is primary day in Michigan and one race we're focused on is in the 3rd Congressional District of the state.  Trevor Thomas, formerly of Servicemembers Legal Defense Network, joins us today to talk about his campaign, his challenger Steve Pestka, and the bigger election against Tea Party favorite Justin Amash.

Guest / 4:30pm EST - In June, several LGBT rights groups wrote a letter to the Department of Health and Human Services, asking them to address protections for Transgender Americans.  Yesterday, new came out that the HHS released a memo affirming that the Affordable Care Act will include protections for transgender people.  Mara Kiesling, president of the National Center for Transgender Equality, returns to the program today to talk about the protections.
