Ten Years Ago Today…

Also, I couldn’t let today go by without noting that this is the ten year anniversary of Matthew Shepard’s death. I was only nineteen when he died, out of the closet for only a few years, and I remember being shocked that something so evil could happen to someone so close to my own age.

Whatever your thoughts about hate crime laws, the scapegoating and violence against LGBT persons is a human rights issue.

  1. I’m wondering how much was learned from his murder. I really don’t have a general idea; do you, Orlando?
