Michelangelo Signorile (; born December 19, 1960) is a gay American writer and a national talk radio host whose program is aired each weekday across the United States and Canada. He is a political liberal, and covers a wide variety of political and cultural issues.

Signorile is noted for his various books and articles on gay and lesbian politics, and is an outspoken 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, influencing the debate and treatment of the issue among journalists from that point on. Signorile has argued in favor of outing from a journalistic perspective, calling for the "equalization" of reporting on homosexual public figures and heterosexual public figures. He has argued that the homosexuality of public figures...and only public figures...should be reported on when relevant, and only when relevant. In 1992 Newsweek listed him as one of America's "100 Cultural Elite," and he is included in the 2002 book, The Gay 100: A Ranking of the Most Influential Gay Men and Lesbians, Past and Present, which begins with Socrates at number 1 and ends with Signorile at number 100.

Signorile has been an editor-at-large and columnist for The Advocate, and a columnist for Out Magazine. He has written for many newspapers and magazines, including The New York Times, USA Today, and The Los Angeles Times, and has appeared on many American television news programs, including Larry King Live, The Today Show, and Good Morning America. His magazine articles, newspaper columns and website, which "offers his always-intriguing take on the state of gay rights and other political and cultural topics", champion the cause of gay rights. In particular, Signorile has advocated that gay Americans come out, and has talked about the deleterious effects of the closet both on the closeted individual and on society as a whole. Signorile has been a long-time champion of the right to marriage for same-sex couples.

Currently, Signorile hosts a radio program, The Michelangelo Signorile Show, which can be heard exclusively on Sirius XM Radio's OutQ channel...Sirius 109, XM 98...each weekday from 2-6 ET. The show airs on satellite radio across North America and is streamed worldwide on the Internet and to the iPhone, iPod Touch, BlackBerry and Android handheld devices to over 19 million Sirius XM subscribers. Signorile interviews politicians, activists, journalists, authors and other public figures, analyzes news and cultural events, and takes calls from listeners from coast-to-coast. Often, Signorile brings on those who are on America's right-wing or are opponents of gay rights, with whom he engages in energetic debates.
