    On October 6th, 1998, Matthew Shepard, a University of Wyoming student, was viciously attacked, tortured and left to die on the outskirts of town. He died 6 days later from severe head injuries. It is alleged that Shepard what singled out by his attackers because of his sexual orientation. On the day Shepard died, Lesléa Newman arrived in Laramie to speak at the University of Wyoming's Gay Awareness Week.

    This episode of Invisible Ink tells the tragic story of Matthew Shepard's death and the conversation around homophobic violence that has been stoked by Lesléa Newman's poetic account of the incident in her book "October Mourning: A Song For Matthew Shepard"
