Anti-gay group to protest Alameda theater production on Friday

Word is that the anti-gay group “God Hates Fags” is planning a protest of this Friday’s Alameda High School production of The Laramie Project. The play is about Matthew Shepard, a gay University of Wyoming student who was murdered in 1998. The protest, according to the group’s web site, is planned for 6:45 p.m., just before the show opens at Alameda High’s Little Theatre.

“God Hates Fags,” a project of the Kansas-based Westboro Baptist Church, is responsible for many other similar protests in the United States and Canada. (The Westboro Baptist Church is monitored as a hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center, and is not know to be affiliated with any other Baptist Churches.)

Here’s details on a counter protest.
