Shepard was a 21-year-old student at the University of Wyoming who was mercilessly attacked and tied to ........ a fence in 1998. After being found the next morning by a biker who mistook him for a scarecrow, Matthew was taken to the hospital in Laramie, Wyoming, where he succumbed to his wounds a few days later. Investigations into the murder strongly suggest that Matthew was murdered for his homosexuality, prompting communities all around the world to mourn. To this day, Matthew Shepard's death is remembered through a variety of dedications and activism, such as the Matthew Shepard Foundation, the Hate Crimes Prevention Act, and now Dr. Craig Hella Johnson's original work "Considering Matthew Shepard."
