Fifteen years after Matthew Shepard’s murder, Wyoming remains anti-gay

In memory of Matthew Shepard“Fifteen years after Matthew Shepard’s murder, Wyoming remains anti-gay” is the title of a article in The Guardian newspaper.

Can’t believe it was 15 years ago. It feels like only yesterday read I first heard about it. It still of course really upsets me now reading about it. Just don’t get why someone would be killed just for being gay. It’s only LOVE after all!

Please can you all take the time to read the article @ www.theguardian.com/world/2013/oct/10/matthew-shepard-wyoming-gay-rights-laws.
