Listen: Jillian Weiss guest hosts Signorile radio show Tues April 13

On Tuesday, April 13, from 2 - 6 pm ET, I will be guest hosting the Michelangelo Signorile show on the OutQ Channel on Sirius XM satellite radio.

I'll discuss some breaking news, give some background on major issues of the day, take some calls, and do some interviews.

Here's the lineup:

2:00 pm: How is President Obama's relationship with the LGBT community going? Where do we go from here? Interview with theologian and activist Rev. Irene Monroe, who's known for a focus on social justice for a sector of society that is frequently invisible.

3:00 pm Will the midterm elections in November change the political complexion of Congress for LGBT and progressive issues? Interview with long-time journalist and wire service correspondent Brody Levesque, whose intimate knowledge of the Washington scene is resonant and often peppered with fascinating personal stories.

4:00 pm The federal Employment Non-Discrimination Act would stop job discrimination and harassment against LGBT employees. It's probably going to pass the House shortly, but the Senate is tricky. Is there a path to victory in the Senate? Interview with Democratic National Committee Member Babs Casbar Siperstein, a long-time political activist who knows everyone that's anyone in politics.

5:00 pm Openly lesbian law professor Chai Feldblum was appointed to the federal Equal Employment Opportunity Commission two weeks ago. What does this mean for the LGBT community, and for job equality? Interview with Senior Political Writer Chris Geidner of DC's Metroweekly, also well-known for his popular blog Law Dork. His triple-threat background in law, politics and journalism gives his commentary unparalleled depth.
