Anti-Gay Hate CrimesDVD
The 1998 murder of Matthew Shepard, a student at the University of Wyoming, brought national attention to the rising incidence of anti-gay hate crimes in America. Although Matthew's case received enormous coverage in the press, many other murders of the same nature have gone largely unnoticed by the media. In this compelling special, Investigative Reports goes beyond the headlines to examine the rise in these violent, hate-motivated crimes and investigates the various organizations which promote discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation. Featuring interviews with experts who describe why crimes against homosexuals have reached such a boiling point, Anti-Gay Hate Crime takes a discerning look at this escalating issue in American society.
