FOUND: Video of Matthew Shepard

Pride Flag

Matthew Shepard unfortunately became the face of hate against homosexuals when he was brutally murdered in 1998.

We were fortunate this year in that The Matthew Shepard and James Byrd Jr. Hate Crime Prevention Act was signed into law and now makes it a federal crime if someone is targeted because of their perceived sexuality.  

Recently, blogger Joshalot posted a video of Matthew Shepard with his then current boyfriend that was part of a film, Dear Jesse which is a documentary about Jesse Helms.  

After the jump check out a short clip from the film that gives us a little bit further look into Matthew Shepard.
