In Memorial: Matthew Shepard

Matthew Shepard, a gay student at the University of Wyoming, was beaten and left to die in a field outside Laramie, Wyoming, during the night of October 6-7, 1998. To honor Shepard’s memory and continue efforts to strengthen compassion and inclusivity in our community for LGBTQIA+ and all social identities, the American Heritage Center curated this exhibit in 2018 to complement a staged reading written by Gregory Hinton, “The Matthew Shepard Story: In Conversation with Rulon Stacey.”
