* GoodShepherd: Father Roger Schmit
* HeteronormativeCrusader: Reverend Fred Phelps
* IntrepidReporter: The members of the Tectonic Theater Project fit the bill.
* JustIgnoreIt: In the movie, this was the residents' response to Fred Phelps [[spoiler:by standing between him and his hate mongers and the public wearing winged angel costumes, blocking them from sight too]].
--->[[spoiler:'''Dennis''': "Mr. McKinney, I am going to grant you life, as hard as it is for me to do so, because of Matthew. Every time you celebrate Christmas, a birthday, the Fourth of July remember that Matt isn't. Every time you wake up in your prison cell remember that you had the opportunity and the ability to stop your actions that night. You robbed me of something very precious and I will never forgive you for that. Mr. McKinney I give you life in the memory of one who no longer lives. May you have a long life and may you thank Matthew every day for it."]]
* NoCelebritiesWereHarmed: Completely averted, especially with the all-too-real [[JerkAss Rev. Fred Phelps]].
* OneSteveLimit: The subject of the show is the death of Matthew Shepard: there are two other Matthews, both of whom worked at the same bar. Both one of the murderers and the man who found Matthew were named Aaron. There are two unrelated Stephens. A pretty good example of how unrealistic the trope is.
