Gay rights activist Signorile working on new bookNovember 21, 2013 @ 12:53 pm
NEW YORK (AP) - Michelangelo Signorile, the activist, SiriusXM host and popular author, sees many battles ahead for gay rights.
Signorile is working on a book for Houghton Mifflin Harcourt that contends homophobia remains as strong as ever despite such recent victories as the Supreme Court striking down a 1996 federal law that banned recognition of same-sex marriages.
The publisher announced Thursday that Signorile's new book has the working title "Beyond Tolerance" and is scheduled to be published in 2015.
Signorile's previous books include "Queer in America," a best-seller published in 1993. He is considered a pioneer of the movement to out celebrities and other public figures believed to be gay.
