This week on SameSexSunday, we chat with YouTube icon Sean ChapinSame Sex Sunday about Mark Bingham's legacy on the 9th anniversary of the September 11th attacks. We also sit down with HIV+ same-sex binational partners who survived Hurricane Katrina, but will soon be torn apart by unfair immigration law in their last days. Meet Roi Whaley and Aurelio Tolentino.

Our weekly LGBT politics round table--sponsored by Wells Consulting LLC--will discuss Colorado's new Lesbian Latina Supreme Court Justice, homophobia in the Tea Party, ENDA protests and progress and hate crimes. Finally, we will spend a lot of time chatting with military veteran and long-time Don't Ask Don't Tell activist, Jarrod Chlapowski about the Federal Court decision out of Riverside California striking down Don't Ask, Don't Tell. His partner Alex Nicholson was named as injured party in that decision, and we'll talk with him about the Log Cabin Republican case and what the next steps will be.

On the round table this week with Jarrod are veteran Washington activist and netroots pioneer, Phil Attey, Bilerico Editorial Advisory Board member Michael Crawford and National LGBT advocate and icon, Meghan Stabler.
