Sirius OutQ's Mike Signorile Show to host LGBT presidential caucus
This Thursday, January 31, tune in to The Michelangelo Signorile Show on Sirius OutQ Satellite Radio (free trial is available; the show airs 2:00PM-6:00PM ET). Reps for the Clinton, Obama and Edwards camps are going to engage with listeners, and take questions about the candidates’ positions on LGBT issues.
* Hilary Rosen will represent Senator Clinton. She is the former Chairman and chief executive officer of the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA). She is currently the President of OurChart.com, an active public speaker and a regular on-air political and business commentator on national television.
* Stampp Corbin will represent Senator Obama. Corbin is the National LGBT Liaison for the Obama campaign, and Co-Chair of the National LGBT Leadership Team, Obama for America ’08. He served on The Board of Directors of the Human Rights Campaign from 1996-2003, and served as HRC Finance Committee Co-Chair from 1998 to 2003.
* Eric Stern will represent Senator Edwards. He is a Political Advisor to the John Edwards for President Campaign. Stern is an attorney, educator and social activist who was worked for more than a decade on numerous Democratic campaigns and in the movement for social justice and equality. In the 2004 election cycle, Stern served as the Director of LGBT Outreach at the Democratic National Committee, where he developed a voter mobilization plan that helped to turnout more than 3.5 million LGBT votes for Democratic candidates nationally.
I’ll be on to ask a question as well, but what are some of the issues you’d like to hear about from the campaigns now that the primary season is under way? Share them in the comments.
Certainly those of you who still have problems with Barack Obama because of the McClurkin debacle will want to weigh in, as well as those of you still troubled by the fact that Hillary Clinton has said she will not fully repeal the Defense of Marriage Act. For John Edwards supporters, you may want to know if he’s still wrestling with the issue of civil marriage equality because of his Baptist upbringing, even after his wife and daughter came out in favor of it.
