Honoring Matthew Shepard:
A Celebration of Life

On December 1, the Washington National Cathedral and the Matthew Shepard Foundation hosted an online prayer service to celebrate the life of Matthew Shepard on what would have been his 44th birthday.

Matt was interred at Washington National Cathedral in 2018, 20 years after his murder horrified the nation and electrified the gay rights movement. Each year on his birthday, the Cathedral and the Matthew Shepard Foundation host a service to celebrate his life and legacy, underwritten with the generous support of Bloomberg Philanthropies.
