IU student brings message of acceptance to Bloomington

Indiana University Junior Kaleb Crain will see the culmination of a years-long effort to spread acceptance and support for Indiana University students when Judy Sheppard  brings her lecture “The Meaning of Matthew” to Whittenberger Auditorium tomorrow evening.

As an IU freshmen, Crain, a Bloomington native,  experienced hate slurs from an anti-gay demonstrator on campus,  who singled out Crain in front of a crowd and stated that he was wheelchair-bound because of homosexual sins. While this angered Crain, it was a second personal tragedy that showed Crain that there was a need for supportive voices like those of Judy Shepard on campus.

WFHB News Director Alycin Bektesh speaks with Crain about the effort behind tomorrow’s lecture.
