About

In October 1998, Judy and Dennis Shepard lost their 21-year-old son Matthew, then a student at the University of Wyoming, to a murder motivated by anti-gay hate. Since then, through the Matthew Shepard Foundation and work with legislators, colleges and universities, and communities, Judy and Dennis have carried on Matthew’s legacy, advancing dignity and justice for queer and trans communities.
