Today On The Signorile Show

3:30pm ET - Jason Hanna & Joe Riggs, a gay couple from North Texas  who were married in Washington D.C. and are the proud fathers of babies Lucas and Ethan who were born of the same surrogate mother, with one child being biologically Hanna’s and the other Riggs’ were recently denied a petition to adopt each other’s child by a Texas judge.  They join us today to talk about the judge’s ruling, Texas’ refusal to acknowledge same sex marriage, and how this is affecting their family.

4:05pm ET - Kenneth M. Walsh is a writer, editor and blogger in New York City, his blog Kenneth in the (212) is one of the most popular LGBT blogs in the country and covers pop culture, politics, books, celebrity, music, New York City, and LGBT issues, but in the summer of ’77, while other boys in the Midwest were busy playing Little League and flocking to see Star Wars, young Kenny Walsh was obsessed with Chris Evert and Woody Allen movies — and daydreamed about moving to New York City. But when his family headed west from the suburbs of Detroit to Phoenix, it was just the first in a series of events that set his Big Apple ambitions on the wrong course.  In his funny and moving memoir titled Wasn’t Tomorrow Wonderful?  Walsh recounts an idiosyncratic childhood and Post-college jobs that took him to Hollywood and Washington, D.C. and finally to Manhattan.  He joins us today in studio to talk about his new book.
