Show Notes – October 25, 2015

We traveled to Denver, Colorado this month for the 2015 Matthew Shepard Foundation Honors Gala.  This annual event celebrates the legacy of Matthew Shepard who was murdered 17 years ago this month in a vicious hate crime in Laramie, Wyoming.

Screen Shot 2015-09-27 at 9.11.02 PMWe have the highlights of the evening including words from Judy Shepard, Matthew’s mother, and the honorees.  The Maines family was honored this year for their courage and for their support of their transgender daughter.  You’ll hear from the parents and their two children, Jonas and Nichole.  Award winning actor, Nathan Lane, was also honored this year.  We also talk with members from the Matthew Shepard Foundation staff.
