Matt Shepard film premiered at National Cathedral

Matt Shepard film premiered at National Cathedral

The Washington (DC) National Cathedral announces: “To mark the fifteenth anniversary of Matthew Shepard’s death after a brutal hate crime, Washington (DC) National Cathedral hosts a weekend of events to honor and remember lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LBGT) youth who have suffered hate-inspired bullying, discrimination, and violence.”


From the Washington Post:

Washington National Cathedral is hosting the premiere of a new documentary about Matthew Shepard, along with a forum about gay rights to mark 15 years since the gay college student was killed in Wyoming.

The cathedral is hosting a screening Friday night of the new documentary “Matt Shepard Is a Friend of Mine.” The film about Shepard’s life was made by Michele Josue, a close friend of Shepard’s. She travels to locations in Shepard’s life and interviews other friends and family members.

The Episcopal Café seeks to be an independent voice, reporting and reflecting on the Episcopal Church and the Anglican tradition.  The Café is not a platform of advocacy, but it does aim to tell the story of the church from the perspective of Progressive Christianity.  Our collective sympathy, as the Café, lies with the project of widening the circle of inclusion within the church and empowering all the baptized for the role to which they have been called as followers of Christ.

The opinions expressed at the Café are those of individual contributors, and, unless otherwise noted, should not be interpreted as official statements of a parish, diocese or other organization. The art and articles that appear here remain the property of their creators.
