Sharon Underwood, an American woman from White River Junction, Vermont, rose to public attention in 2000 after the Valley News of West Lebanon, N.H., published a letter she had written decrying the treatment her son had received from his school peers as a result of him being gay.
Underwood's letter, the result of more than two decades of anger built up by "standard gay bashing", was subsequently reproduced in newspapers, emails and on websites around the world, including that of Democratic National Committee treasurer Andrew Tobias, who posted it under the headline "The best thing I've read all year".
