Michael Fisher, Kevin Kohn, Genesis Michael, and Melanie Morris rehearse a scene from The Laramie Project. (GSU)

University Park, IL-(ENEWSPF)- On October 6, 1998, a 21-year-old University of Wyoming student was kidnapped, brutally beaten, and left tied to a fence in the middle of the prairie just outside Laramie, Wyoming. He would not be discovered until the next day. The only spots on his body not covered by blood were tracks on his cheeks from tears. His name was Matthew Shepard and he was attacked because he was gay.
