We’re Expecting a Lot of Finger Pointing at Michelangelo Signorile’s Power Panel

Tomorrow afternoon in D.C., OutQ radio host Michelangelo Signorile will host The Path Forward, a live panel (with studio audience, video stream, and call-ins) with the likes of NGLTF’s Rea Carey; NCTE’s Mara Keisling; SLDN’s Aubrey Sarvis; Clinton’s former LGBT advisor Richard Socarides; and blogger Pam Spaulding. (We’re told HRC’s Joe Solmonese will be piped in via satellite, or Skype, or something, because he’s stuck in London due to Iceland’s volcano ash.) And there’s a reason none of the panel members are part of the White House administration, or elected members of Congress: “We really wanted to make this a discussion among activists and leaders in the LGBT movement. I know leaders could also be [Rep. Barney] Frank and [Rep. Tammy] Baldwin in Congress. We really wanted to keep it very focused on the strategy of activists. I’ve had Barney, Tammy, and Jared [Polis, out congressman from Colorado] on the show, and we wanted to put the focus on the activists who engage with Congress.” That list, apparently, doesn’t include GetEQUAL’s Robin McGehee; she’ll be in the audience asking a question.
