    Thanks for posting.
    It is sad that homophobic murders are the catalyst for starting a process of change! Dr George Duncan in Australia, Matthew Shepard in the US. and here in Ireland it was Declan Flynn. Every country probably has a similar event.
    Hopefully there will come a time when everybody will be treated equally and the concept of homophobia will be nothing more than an historical oddity.
    Until then it is important to remember these martyrs for equality.
