A byte out of crime
The murders of Matthew Shepard and Billy Jack Gaither have brought much-needed attention to the issue of hate crimes. Listen to some of the debate in Congress, though, and itís clear that many lawmakers still havenít gotten the message. This only underscores the importance that each hate crime committed against a gay man or lesbian be reported. And now, thanks to the El Paso, Tex., group Lambda GLBT Community Services, you can do so online.
