Gay Bashings Still Happen

I was in Tampa (though not at Tampa Pride) when this happened, but I only found out about it today. Here's another story on the same incident. The latter one includes photos of the guys who got beat up.

Sigh. Every so often I convince myself that the whole awful Matthew Shepard episode -- especially with the conviction of the perps -- pretty much put an end to gay bashing in the USA. And I'd venture to say that the rate of incidence is way down.

But any incidence of such is still intolerable.
