In 1998, Matthew Shepard, a gay college student at the University of Wyoming was found tied to a fence after he was kidnapped and beaten the night before. Five days later, Shepard died. His story galvanized the nation and helped push legislation that expanded the definition of hate crimes to include sexual orientation. Shepard's death also inspired a Grammy-winning composer to write a new choral work on Shepard's life. Listen to it here.
