Almost ten years ago Sophie Lancaster and her boyfriend Rob were severely beaten by a group of Teenagers because they were “different” part of the Goth subculture. On August 24th 2007 Sophie succumbed to her injuries. Soon after two of the young men involved were tried and found guilty of her murder and the others were found guilty of grievous bodily harm in the beating of her boyfriend Rob. In the time that has passed since, The Sophie Lancaster Foundation was founded to help spread awareness and equality for members of all subcultures within our society, through education and their tireless work with Legislators and Law Enforcement the world over they have helped create protections for those who society might deem “Different” due to their beliefs, appearance, or choice of music.
