Never Forget Matthew Shepard

Thirteen years ago today, Matthew Shepard passed away after being the victim of a horrible hate crime. The young man’s tragic story has since brought awareness to the hate that still infects our communities, schools, families and the country as a whole. We must never forget about this terrible loss and always keep up the fight for equality and humanity. There is nothing wrong with being Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual or Transgender and out and proud. For more on Matthew, his life and his legacy and how to support the cause, head to the Matthew Shepard Foundation here.

And here’s a beautiful video about Matthew’s story set to the song Melissa Etheridge wrote about him after his passing, “Scarecrow”
