Public support for same-sex marriage is rising in all 50 states, even in states where it is banned, according to a new UCLA poll. By that and other measures, American society appears to be more accepting of gays and lesbians than in decades past.

Signorile joins us to talk about the book and the fight for LGBT equality.

Guests:

Michelangelo Signorile, author of books including "It's Not Over: Getting Beyond Tolerance, Defeating Homophobia, and Winning True Equality" and "Queer in America"
