YouTuber Talks About Matthew’s Legacy

When Matthew Shepard died October 1998 it made international news. We often hear from supporters of the Foundation from other countries.

Denis Theriault, a 25 year old Canadian actor and producer, first learned of Matt’s story when he saw the film version of “The Laramie Project” in 2002. He made a moving video about what Matt’s legacy means to him and how it has changed his life.

Denis, thank you for sharing your story.



With your help we can continue our work to share Matthew's dream of replacing the hate in the world with understanding, compassion, and acceptance.
