Why we’re covering this: Despite the legalization of same-sex marriage in the U.S., homophobia, lesbophobia, biphobia, transphobia and anti-LGBT sentiment continue to thrive, both at home and abroad. Whether this takes the form of physical violence or institutional violence, it’s important for our community to remain aware of anti-LGBT violence so we can educate others and work against it.
