Michelangelo Signorile

Michelangelo Signorile is a gay journalist, author, and satellite talk radio personality. Also an editor-at-large for a prominent media outlet, he writes regularly about LGBT issues both politically and socially. Michelangelo Signorile has also published various books and is a prominent supporter of gay rights. Signorile's seminal 1993 book Queer in America explored the negative effects of the LGBT closet and provided one of the first intellectual justifications for the practice of outing public officials. In August 2011 Signorile was inducted in the National Lesbian and Gay Journalists Association LGBT Journalist Hall of Fame, and was included in the Out magazine annual Out 100 in 2012.
