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.
