Since Waymon is having so much fun giving away prize packages on Bilerico-Florida, I wanted to give something away too! app.gifYesterday Beth Loffreda's new book, Losing Matt Shepard: Life and Politics in the Aftermath of Anti-Gay Murder, arrived in my mailbox and since today is the day they found Matt's almost lifeless body, it seemed appropriate to give it away now. I just used a quote from the book for a Homotextual last week; I've had a chance to skim the book and it seems very powerful and moving.

To win, just leave a comment (with a valid e-mail address so I can contact you if you win). Contributors are not eligible to win. The contest will close Wed, Oct 8 at 9:59am EST. Only one entry per person. I'll use a random number generator to pick a winner.

The book retails for $21.99 and if you just can't wait to see if you've won, you can purchase a copy from the publisher.

P.S. - Since B-FL is a new site, your chances of winning a prize are huge! Go enter! You don't have to be from Florida to win!

Sign me up for the giveaway.

Canadian we were not given details of the Matt Shepard death other than that given in the news, there was never any follow up on the story. I would like the book for my partner, who has written and lectured on gay issues.

Thank You
