New Student Reader Program 2013-2014
The Meaning of Matthew:
My Son’s Murder in Laramie,
And a World Transformed
With Judy Shepard
oday, the name Matthew
Shepard is synonymous
with gay rights, but before
his grisly murder in 1998, Matthew was
simply Judy Shepard’s son. The Meaning of
Matthew follows the Shepard family in the
days immediately after the crime,
when Judy and her husband
traveled to see their incapacitated
son, kept alive by life support
machines; how the Shepards
learned of the incredible response
from strangers all across America
who held candlelit vigils and
memorial services for their child;
and finally, how they struggled to navigate
the legal system as Matthew’s murderers
were on trial. Shepard shares how she
handled the crippling loss of her child,
why she became a gay rights activist, and
the challenges and rewards of raising a
gay child in America today.
