Skip to comments.Matthew Shepard: The legacy of a gay college student 20 years after his brutal murder.
Posted on 10/26/2018 8:11:28 AM PDT by carriage_hill
Twenty years ago, Matthew Shepard was a "smart, funny" 21-year-old, no different than any other young man that age. He was an "ordinary kid who wanted to make the world a better place," his parents remembered. But in October 1998, that all changed, when the openly gay college student was abducted, beaten and tied to a fence in Wyoming. His life ended a few days later, and with it came a widespread awareness of the dangers that members of the LGBTQ community face every day. The homophobic brutal killing also served as a catalyst for progress in America's laws and culture.

About LGBTQRSTXZY to the libs
They want to destroy the family the Bible and recreate sodom
Yup. Fag or straight its a bad thing to rip off drug dealers
I thought they found out his gay lover killed him?
Every word in the original article was a lie, including ‘the’ and ‘and,’
(with apologies to Dorothy Sayers)
Will there be a story next year remembering the murder of Jesse Dirkhising some 20 years later or what?
I didn’t think so.
Read “The Book of Matt.” Excellent investigative work by a journalist who is gay himself. He didn’t find what he expected: Shepard was a meth dealer and gay male prostitute who was meeting the man who killed him to trade sex for drugs - as he had done at least once before.
/src on/Shepherd was murdered by homophobes as much as JFK was assassinated by a right wing fanatic./src off/
They did but the narrative is more important; the noble lie.
He was killed for drug deal not for his perverted homosexuality.
He OWED DRUG MONEY to those other fellow drug-dealers, one of whom he often humped (or was humped by).
He died SITTING, not hung from a fence.
A lot of perps that have been killed by the police have been made into heroes by the lame street media in recent years.
HOMOSEXUAL, because there's nothing GAY about it.
Stonewall bar in NYC is a historical gay mecca where homoz rioted after they could no longer stand police repression, right?
Wasn’t a bar, it was a bottle-club and it was mobbed up.
The primary income of the biz was selling drinks to gay guys, yes, but some of the patrons caused trouble and when the trouble-maker was closeted, often the mob guys would kill 2 birds with 1 stone by BLACKMAILING the trouble-maker:
They’d get money, plus the guy would stop going there, right? Which was what they wanted.
Well this one guy got really violent about getting blackmailed and THAT is why there was a riot.
They just changed the story cuz that’s what they preferred, just as with the Holy Saint Matt Shepard BS story.
LGBTQRSTXZY: you forgot the ending...LGBTQRSTXZYFUBAR
My son was a Senior at Wyo. when this happened. He said Matt was a known drug dealer on campus. His death was the result of a deal gone bad. No homophobia involved.
Probably will be required study in middle schools now...
His killers admitted on 20/20 years ago that they were fellow homosexuals.
NOOOOO! Not true. He was murdered by guys who were followers of Jerry Falwell!
