Today on the Signorile Show

Gun Madness: More states are allowing guns to be brought into restaurants and bars, and the Governor of Texas recently called for allowing guns on college campuses so that when school shootings occur there can be an all out battle -- or some such other scary nonsense. We'll get into it and take your calls.

There's been a great deal of converage of the recent suicides of gay teens and Towleroad does a great job in this round-up. Vigils were held in New York and at the Rutgers campus over the weekend, where Tyler Clementi was a student before he took his own life leaping off the George Washington Bridge. For much of last week on the show we discussed these stories and tried to make sense of it all and how we could change it. We'll get into it again and take your calls and observations.

Condom use is highest among the young, breaking some long held stereotypes, at least according to the latest study, which also shows 7% of people identifying as "other than heterosexual." Much to discuss.

Guest / 4:30pm EST - We've talked a lot about Michigan Assistant Attorney General Andrew Shirvell and his blog against University of Michigan student body president Chris Armstrong and Mike Cox, the Michigan Attorney General standing up for Shirvell, saying it's his First Amendment Right. Even the Michigan ACLU agrees that this Shirvell's First Amendment right, even though Shirvell is a public figure. We'll speak with Jay Kaplan, LGBT Legal Project Staff Attorney with the Michigan ACLU, who will explain the ACLU's stance on this.

We are back from covering One Nation Working Together, the march on the mall that turned out thousands of people. We'll re-cap and replay some of my interviews, including with NAACP president Ben Jealous and Rev. Jesse Jackson.

These stories and so much more, today on The Michelangelo Signorile Show!
