Considering Matthew Shepard
Complementing our performance, we are pleased to offer the following special programs:
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. Click here for a Press Release about this event.
This presentation is designed to accompany our Spring concert.
Check back for further details as they are finalized.
Da Camera thanks the Mass Cultural Council for its generous support.
