Sakia Gunn - More important than Peter's mess

I see that our friend Peter LaBarbera is getting a little traction from the anti-gay industry regarding his bestiality mess.

Whoop te do. I was going to write a little on it but I saw something more important:

Five years ago, Sakia, a 15-year old girl who "dressed like a boy," was attacked while waiting for a Newark, New Jersey bus after a night out with friends. The girls were approached by two men in a car who made uninvited sexual advances. When the girls declined, stating that they were lesbians, 30-year old Richard McCullough fatally stabbed Sakia while shouting homophobic slurs. She bled out at the intersection of Broad and Market during the wee hours of Mother's Day morning.

This May is the fifth anniversary of the murder of Sakia Gunn. She would have just celebrated her 20th birthday.

The rest of the article is here.

Let Peter and the rest of the rest of the anti-gay industry ruminate and bullshit. They are irrelevant.

Our lgbt children, such as Sakia Gunn, matter more.
