For over two decades SIRIUS XM host Michelangelo Signorile has been among the most outspoken and controversial critics of American politics and culture. As a gay activist and journalist, he earned acclaim as the father of the “outing” phenomenon, sparked by his 1990 Outweek cover story about publishing magnate Malcolm Forbes’ homosexuality. He has continued to be on the forefront of reporting on these issues for his whole career, in-depth coverage of Larry Craig, Mark Foley, Mark Kirk, Mark Buse and others. Signorile was featured in Kirby Dick’s movie Outrage.
