Barbra Streisand Talks With the Matthew Shepard Foundation

In the fight for equality, sometimes we can get so wrapped up in the present
that we forget that this struggle has been going on for decades — and that
those who have been speaking out on our behalf for many years have made possible
the current level of societal acceptance of LGBT people.

There are few other individuals who have been such unabashed
advocates for equality as Ms. Barbra Streisand, who has been at the forefront of
the fight for her entire career.

Recently Ms. Streisand was gracious enough to
give a bit of her time to answer some questions for . We send
her our sincere thanks for her compassion, generosity and candor.

The world is a
safer place because of her voice.
