COL181: Matthew

In this weeks episode, the boys are joined by Eric and they talk about the impact of the murder of Matthew Shepard and how we dealt with it as a country and as gay men.


  • [Robert] Matthew Shepard – In early October of 1998, Matthew Shepard was a 21 year-old college student at the University of Wyoming at Laramie. One night, he went to a local bar and while there he met and eventually left with two other young men, Aaron McKinney and Russell Henderson. In the hours that followed, McKinney and Henderson beat, tortured, and robbed Matthew. They then tied him to a fence in a secluded area of Laramie to die. He was found the next day by a cyclist who thought he had stumbled upon a scarecrow. Matthew died on October 12th, 1998.
  • What impact, if any, did his murder have on your life?
