The Laramie Project at BAM

In 1998, Matthew Shepard was tied to a fence, beaten, and left to die on the outskirts of Laramie, Wyoming. He had been the victim of a homophobic hate crime that left the small town of Laramie reeling. His murder became a watershed moment in America, highlighting the violence and prejudice LGBT people face in contemporary society. Meticulously crafted from hundreds of interviews conducted with the town's residents over the course of a decade—including Matthew's mother, Judy Shepard, and his convicted killer Aaron McKinney—"The Laramie Project Cycle" is presented by Moisés Kaufman and members of Tectonic Theater Project.
