Join us at the ASUW Student Memorial Plaza on the University of Wyoming campus between Half Acre Gym and Prexy’s Pasture for a candlelight vigil celebrating the life of Matthew Shepherd on the 20th Anniversary of his death. We will meet on Thursday October 12 at 6:30 PM.

This vigil will include speakers from the UW community as well as others who will reflect on the 20 years since Matt’s death, and the impact it had on Laramie, Wyoming, and the world.

This will be an event to not only remember Matthew Shepard on the 20th Anniversary of his death, but to honor the memory of those lost in the Pulse Massacre, gay men persecuted in Chechnya, trans and queer women of color, the victims of the AIDS epidemic, and all other queer lives lost or harmed due to violence.

Children and families are welcome as we honor and remember the members of the LGBTQ community we’ve lost.
