Judy Shepard at the HRC Dinner

Wow, it's been 10 years this year.

In the words of Michael Crawford, at the
Bilerico Project:

There are moments when I become so frustrated by the in-fighting and division with the GLBT movement that I just want to rip every strand of my hair out. Then there are moments when people like Judy Shepard remind me of why it is so critical despite the seemingly endless drama that we continue to lead with our hearts and fight for equality. Here is Judy speaking at the 2008 HRC Houston Dinner. This year marks the 10th anniversary of Matthew Shepard's murder.

And here is the rest of it.

Ten years...seems like yesterday. So many gay beatings in my 'hood this year, and I live in the "gay part of Seattle."

I certainly can't beleive it's been ten years since Matthew Shepard's murder. I know i'll never understand why it happen's. I know, "Hate Crime's", but how can you hate someone you don't know? As for as that goes how can you hate anyone? It's nice to see that Matthew's mom is still fighting in his honor, and for gay right's. Most of us will be fighting with her, I admire her determination and courage.
