For #NationalComingOutDay & @MattShepardFDN #NoH8

On the night of October 6, 1998, Matthew Shepard met Aaron McKinney and Russell Henderson at the Fireside Lounge in Laramie, Wyoming. McKinney and Henderson decided to give Shepard a ride home. They subsequently drove the car to a remote, rural area, and proceeded to rob, pistol-whip, and torture Shepard, tie him to a fence, and leave him to die–all because he was gay. It was reported that Shepard was beaten so brutally that his face was completely covered in blood, except where it had been partially washed clean by his tears. This crime was the impetus for the Matthew Shepard Foundation. Take a moment to tell your loved ones how much they mean to you today. Take a moment to erase hate in your community however you can. #MSF20 #EraseHate
