08-10-18 – Hartford, CT>New York City, NY – On October 6, 1998, twenty-one-year-old Matthew Shepard was severely beaten and abandoned near Laramie, Wyoming. He died six days later from severe head injuries. Matthew’s beating and death made headlines in news media across the country because he was a gay man. His murder was denounced as a hate crime, bringing attention to the lack of hate crime laws in much of the U.S. and prompting many states and eventually the federal government to include crimes against LGBTQ+ persons as hate crimes. — Submit Yourself To This Role Now: Live Event
