Come ogni #7obbre. A #MatthewShepard [Thread lungo, vi prego di leggerlo tutto]

La mattina del 7 ottobre 1998, a Laramie in Wyoming, proprio oggi ma 20 anni fa, veniva ritrovato in fin di vita, e legato ad unk steccato, Matthew Shepard. Un ragazzo di appena 21 anni.
Matthew fu rapinato, rapito, pestato a sangue e selvaggiamente torturato da due ragazzi non molto più grandi di lui che poi lo lasciarono legato ad una staccionata a morire. Aveva una frattura dalla nuca fino oltre l'orecchio destro.
Parte del cervello era stata danneggiata in modo tale da risultare compromessa la capacità del suo corpo di regolare il battito cardiaco, la temperatura corporea e altre funzioni vitali. C'era inoltre circa una dozzina di piccole ferite sulla testa, sul collo e sulla faccia.

I'm crying.

I'm listening to @NPR's @MorningEdition report on the internment of #MatthewShepard's ashes.

I'm recalling the candlelight vigil I attended with friends.
The emotional interview I did with Judy Shepard.
The shocking brutality of the killing.

@NPR @MorningEdition I'm thinking of other #LGBT hate crime killings I covered that weren't national headlines.

#SakiaGunn was two weeks shy of her 16th birthday when a man called her a d*ke and when she talked back, stabbed her. She died in the lap of her cousin.

@NPR @MorningEdition #GwenAraujo was a teenager when she was raped and murdered.

#BrandonTeena was in their 20s when they were raped and murdered.

Two young trans/GNC people just trying to live their authentic lives. But men wanted them to follow their birth genitalia instead.

Like Trump.
