Today on the Signorile Show

Guest / 2:30pm EST - Students First is an educational political action group and recently nominated Tennessee Representative John Ragan as "Reformer of the Year" in Education.  However, Ragan has pushed a number of anti-gay policices in his state and is co-author of the "Don't Say Gay" Bill.  LGBT Activist Scott Wooledge has been looking into this story and joins us today to talk about it.

Guest / 3:30pm EST - Yesterday, we spoke about the coming out of Jason Collins, the first professional basketball player to come out as gay.  Many athletes cheered his decision to come out, including former tennis pro Martina Navratilova.  She joins us today to speak about what his decision means to the world of sports.

Guest / 4:30pm EST - Dr. Brian Hare of Duke University joins us to talk about his work in which he tests dogs ability to respond to social cues.  In his work, he has found that in some cases, dogs understand certain social cues better than apes.
