#FridayFlashback

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.
