Shepard march Sept. 27

2008-09-17 Windy City Times - LINK

The 10th annual Matthew Shepard rally/march will take place Saturday, Sept. 27, at 8 p.m. at the corner of Halsted and Roscoe, 3400 N. Halsted. The march will take place around the Lakeview community.

The event, sponsored by Gay Liberation Network, will not only mark the decade since Shepard was killed but will also spotlight opposition to James Dobson's upcoming induction into Chicago's National Radio Hall of Fame Saturday, Nov. 8. Dobson leads Focus on the Family, an anti-gay organization.

The rally's keynote speaker will be Wayne Besen, executive director of the pro-LGBT organization Truth Wins Out.
