Shelly Prevost, independent film maker and video activist, reports on the murder, media coverage of the tragedy, and it’s effects on the victim’s family.

Seth Kilbourne, HRC’s National Field Director, tells us about their current national strategy to improve protections for freedom of gender expression and identity.
