Laramie Inside Out is playing in honor of the 20th Memorial of Matthew Shepard. All memorial events are meant to honor Matt’s legacy by emphasizing an understanding of social justice that is intersectional in terms of race, gender, sexual orientation, age, disability, class, etc. (Matthew Shepard Memorial Group)
“Filmmaker Beverly Seckinger returns to her hometown to see how this event had affected the site of her own closeted adolescence. Along the way she meets "God-hates-fags" Westboro Baptist Church Reverend Fred Phelps, who condemns Shepard and all LGBT people to an eternal hell. But Seckinger meets many more—parents, teachers, clergy and students—telling their stories, speaking out and taking action” (Laramie Inside Out)
