 As a writer and artist, there are five sacred memories I carry with me everywhere: Oscar Wilde, Jonathan Larson, Harvey Milk, Alexander McQueen, and Matthew Shepard. These five former gentlemen inspire me in ways that I will never understand. Their contributions to my ability to be “out” are uncanny and awesome, worthy of never ending praise and love. For that reason, I write today to thank Matthew Shepard, again. He did not die in vain.
