Today on the Signorile Show

Guest / 2:30pm EST - Donnie Collins is a transgender fraternity brother in Phi Alpha Tau at Emerson College.  He recently found out that his student insurance would not cover his gender reassignment surgery.  Christian Bergren-Aragon and the other members of Phi Alpha Tau started a social media campaign to raise money for Donnie's surgery and they will join us today to talk about it.

Guest / 3:30pm EST - Representative Mark Takano represents the 41st Congressional District of California and joins us today to speak about his serving as one of the many openly-gay Representatives in the House and also about a letter he'd written to President Obama urging him to offer a brief in the Proposition 8 case.

Guest / 4:30pm EST - This past Friday, the House released its version of the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) and domestic violence advocates are not happy with the plan the House Republicans put forward.  Sharon Stapel, Executive Director of the New York Anti-Violence Project, joins us today to talk about the new plan and the lack of provisions for LGBT people.
