Lesléa Newman

“He Continues to Make a Difference: The Story of Matthew Shepard”

Auditorium at Amherst-Pelham Regional  High School,
170 Chestnut St., Amherst, MA.
This presentation is open to all and is free of charge.

In 1998, Matthew Shepard was kidnapped, robbed, beaten, and murdered in Laramie, Wyoming. Lesléa Newman was the keynote speaker for Gay Awareness Week at the University of Wyoming that year, and arrived on campus the day that Matthew Shepard died from this horrendous hate crime. This program uses poetry, photographs, and creative visualization to explore the impact of Matthew Shepard’s murder on the world.
