Matthew Shepard

An emotional trailer for the documentary ‘Matthew Shepard: An American Hate Crime’ dropped on Friday, September 1.

Investigation Discovery has released the heart-rending trailer about the life of Matthew Shepard, 25 years after his death in what is considered one of the most horrific homophobic hate crimes in modern history.

The trailer begins with a recounting of the gruesome discovery of the then-21-year-old Shepard’s almost lifeless body by a student and how it changed and affected the lives of queer people across America.

Watch the trailer here:

The official synopsis says “With interviews from Matthew’s friends and allies, local journalists and community members, as well as key celebrity voices who were deeply affected by Matthew’s story including Rosie O’Donnell, Andrew Rannells and Adam Lambert, ‘Matthew Shepard: An American Hate Crime’ will also focus on the progress society has made since his passing and the work that still needs to be done.”

“When Matthew Shepard, a gay college student, was brutally tortured and left for dead in Wyoming, this shocking act of violence captured the nation’s attention and sparked a debate about the discrimination, danger, and violence that many LGBTQ+ Americans face. Regarded as one of the worst anti-gay hate crimes in American history as well as a turning point in the fight for LGBTQ+ rights, ‘Matthew Shepard: An American Hate Crime’ is a timely tribute to Matthew’s story at a time when the LGBTQ+ community is once again under attack.”

The documentary will premiere Monday, October 9th from 9 to 11 PM ET/PT, ahead of the 25th Anniversary of Shepard’s passing.
