PULSE Nightclub Memorial: Keeping Matthew Shepard's Legacy Alive
The memorial honors the 49 victims who died in Orlando at the gay nightclub, THE PULSE, two years ago. The owner of the club also wanted to memorialize Matthew Shepard, who has yet to be paid homage for the slow, painful death he endured in Laramie back in 1998.

Matthew is a hero to me because he had the courage to be who he was as a person, even in a ho-dunk town like Laramie, Wyoming. He paid the ultimate price for being openly homosexual at the hands of some ignorant, young boys. Through their ignorance, they ended his life and forever ruined their own.

Matthew is more than a hero, He is a reluctant Martyr. He never asked for that nor did he envision that.
He was just a young, sweet guy who wanted to live his life and be free to be happy. Through no fault of his own, he was tortured and left to die alone. I will never understand how anyone can condone that, but they do. The actions of some on this site prove the propensity for violence towards the LGBT community continues to exist

Hatred is alive and well, Goat, both on this site and in the world at large. According to the article, the owner of the property where Matthew was strung up and left to die, finally took the fence down because he was "tired" of sightseers coming to look and see where Shepard had met his demise. That would suggest that Shepard's death was a nuisance to him and the ramifications of it didn't really resonate with him.

I agree. The site was very remote so I cannot imagine that it posed any inconvenience to him whatsover. I remember the "Pride" post and the comments by some. I guess they will never get it. To some of us, We take Pride in just staying alive

What a shame someone hadn't been there to give your father such sound advice on the night when you were conceived
